Saturday, November 18, 2017
The PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour will bring its thrilling, adrenaline-filled, edge-of-your seat excitement to the Rabobank Arena on November 18, 2017. It will be the Velocity Tour’s third trip to Bakersfield, after successful events in 2014 and 2015.
For one-night only, some of the best bull riders in the world will battle the sport’s toughest bovine athletes. The thrilling 8-second rides and heart-stopping wrecks make the PBR’s Velocity Tour one of the most exciting live sporting events to see.
The bull riding action begins at 7:00 pm PT on Saturday, November 18. Tickets, ranging in price from $15 to $150, go on sale Friday, June 16 to the general public and are available at the Rabobank Arena box office, online at AXS.com, and by phone at (888) 929-7849.
Available for purchase are PBR Elite Seats. This $150 ticket includes premium seating and a 60-minute pre-event tour that will allow fans to step out on the dirt and behind the scenes to take in everything that goes into putting on the Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour. Elite Seat holders will also be given the opportunity to go one-on-one with World Champion-caliber bull riders as well as some of the fiercest bucking bulls in the sport.
Each rider will face one bull in Round 1 with the Top 10 scoring riders of the night moving on to one more ride in the championship round. At the end of the competition, the rider with the highest combined score will be crowned the champion. Derek Kolbaba, the current No. 3 rider in the world standings, won the 2015 Bakersfield event on his way to BFTS stardom.
