PBR was built on traditional values such as grit, courage, respect and hard work. There are no time outs, no towels to throw in. There is only one man, one bull and 8 desperate seconds. Welcome to the roller coaster world of the adrenaline cowboy as they take on the nations most extreme bucking bulls in a 3 hour action packed event that will keep you on the edge of your seat from the first bull of the night through to the last. It’s a showdown like no other – Bull Riding Athletes all eager for glory as they strive to overcome the power of the 52 most extreme bucking bulls in a head to head battle of power, agility and the fight of the fittest 8 seconds at a time.

Only one cowboy can leave with the honor of the 2018 Last Cowboy Standing. Choreographed with pyrotechnics, lasers, concert sound system and mega screen replays, with multiple camera angles that will take you behind the scenes and inside the bucking chutes as riders prepare for the ride of their life whilst delivering you the ultimate live event bull riding experience inside the Brisbane Entertainment Centre. This is pain and fear and blood and courage and glory. This is the one and only PBR!
