The 2017 Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo Tour will return to the PNC Arena with a show at 7:30 p.m., Jan. 7.
Tickets, which start at $18 for adults and are half price for kids 12 and under, are on sale now.
Here's a description of the show, which is a favorite for families: Fans of all ages can enjoy edge-of-your-seat action, eight seconds at a time at Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo. The night will feature fan-favorite events: bull riding, saddle bronc riding and bareback riding with the top two riders competing a second time in the thrilling “Winner Take All Showdown Round,” as well as women’s barrel racing. In addition to outstanding competition, fans will enjoy mutton bustin’ action, featuring young contestants from the Triangle area and beyond atop speedy sheep. “Danger” Dave Whitmoyer will bring the comedy like no other and entertain with his rodeo clown antics.
For the first time, the show also will feature bull jumpers. As usual, before the rodeo, fans are invited to a free pre-show event where they can take pony rides, meet cowboys, take photos and more. (Sadly, Whiplash the cowboy monkey is not part of this year's line up).
