Frontier Nights® lineup announced live from Las Vegas as WNFR kicks off
CHEYENNE, WY – In a live announcement made from the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center, Cheyenne Frontier Days™ (CFD) announced all but two of the names for the 2018 Frontier Nights® entertainment series. In addition to the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) Rodeo, the Championship Bull Riding (CBR) World Finals will return to the arena in 2018.
Florida Georgia Line, Cole Swindell, Charlie Daniels Band with special guest Tracy Lawrence, Eric Church, and Dierks Bentley were announced live, from Las Vegas and live streamed on the Wrangler Network.
“We are excited about the lineup for 2018,” Contract Acts chairman Scott Fleming said. “We are working on securing the remaining performances and will have a follow-up announcement at that time.”
Championship Bull Riding returns to Cheyenne Frontier Days to crown the 2018 CBR World Champion bull rider with a $100,000 check. Six-time World Champion Sage Kimzey broke all CBR records in 2017 when he won an unprecedented third CBR World title.
Additionally, the 122nd annual “Daddy of ‘em All®” will feature nine days of PRCA professional rodeo that will culminate in Championship Sunday where champions are crowned and legends are made.
There will be hundreds of vendors, a full carnival, artists, food and music that celebrate the history and culture of the American West.
Night show ticket prices will range from $29 to $71, with daily rodeo tickets costing $20 to $35. A $3 discount is offered on rodeo tickets purchased before July 1.
Fans can upgrade to a Frontier Nights® Fast Pass for early admission to the Party Zone, a voucher for best-available same-day rodeo tickets and a souvenir rodeo program. For a full events schedule and profiles of musical acts, go to www.cfdrodeo.com.
