The Strongman Classic 2022

Over 120 years after the legendary Eugen Sandow held 'the Great Competition', Giants Live brings the 21st century version of Strongman back to where it all started, The Royal Albert Hall.

Get the VIP treatment!

Experience the THRILL of the Giants Live Arena Tour with the best seats in the house! Our VIP Gold and VIP Silver packages offer fans the chance to sit just inches away from the World’s Strongest Men as they lift, throw, drag and flip their way to victory!

Hear from Strongman legends past and present with an intimate pre-show chat and drinks, exclusively available to VIP Gold ticket-holders in a private area.

All VIP Gold and VIP Silver ticket-holders will also receive an exclusive Giants Live Goody Bag, filled with all kinds of official Giants Live merch.

If the nights action wasn’t enough, there’s even more for our VIP Gold and VIP Silver ticket-holders! Meet your heroes in our aftershow meet and greet, where all the stars of the show will be ready and waiting to sign autographs and take selfies!


Get ready to see feats of strength that would make legendary strength stars such as Louis Cyr, Apollon the Mighty and Eugen Sandow rub their eyes in disbelief as the biggest and baddest Strongmen on the planet take on 5 incredible tests of strength in the Royal Albert Hall!

Announcing Giants Live’s triumphant return to action in 2021, fans were treated to a show for the ages- World Records smashed, legends performing their swansong and even a nail-biting photo finish for the victory!

2022 is set to be another incredible event- hot off the heels of World’s Strongest Man 2022, the Giants will be raring to prove themselves once again against the biggest and best Strongmen on the planet. Oleksii Novikov made amends at The Strongman Classic for a disappointing World’s Strongest Man in 2021- after being knocked out in the group stages, he put on a scintillating display of strength and speed in front of a packed crowd and claimed victory at the inaugural Strongman Classic.

Jaw-dropping, inspirational and larger than life – this is live strength sport and entertainment at its absolute biggest and best! There is only one World’s Strongest Man Arena Tour and this is it!
