FORT WORTH, Texas (March 13, 2024) – PBR (Professional Bull Riders) today announced the packed lineup of entertainment programming that will accompany the 2024 PBR World Finals: Unleash The Beast and Kid Rock’s Rock N Rodeo, set to overtake Fort Worth and Arlington, Texas from May 9-19. The largely free-to-attend schedule, headlined by the Stockyards Stampede, alongside premium offerings, VIP hospitality, and musical performances, affords fans the opportunity to enjoy the pair of revolutionary Western Sports events like never before.

When the PBR World Finals get underway with Eliminations on May 9-12, fans will be able to take in bull riding’s crown jewel in an all-encompassing manner with the launch of the four-day, all-inclusive ticket package. This package includes daily event tickets to Eliminations set to be held for the first time ever inside the most iconic Western sports venue in the world, Cowtown Coliseum. Adding to the intimate allure of Cowtown Coliseum, not only was it host for the first PBR event in 1993 but it will also be set up in a manner that will ensure every fan is positioned to have dirt kicked upon them.

This unparallelled experience to the high-adrenaline competition will be accompanied by holistic hospitality offerings at Tannahill’s Tavern & Music Hall providing access to a myriad of enhanced fan experiences, including live musical performances from the likes of GRAMMY Award-winning Brothers Osborne and renowned Texas country artist Stoney LaRue.

As part of the four-day Elimination package, Tannahill’s Tavern & Music Hall, the popular restaurant in Mule Alley from Chef Tim Love, will host daily pre-parties, providing fans curated cocktails and food offerings from world-renowned Chef Love, credited for helping reinvent urban western cuisine, and post-event hospitality and entertainment.
