FRIDAY 3/6–SATURDAY 3/7. Simmons Bank Arena. 7:45 p.m. (Friday) and 6:45 p.m. (Saturday). $14–$109.
For the uninitiated, the PBR is emphatically “NOT a rodeo” (nor is it in any way related to Pabst Blue Ribbon). What is it, then? According to the website, it’s “two hours of pyro, music and the most intense bull riding action on Earth, filled with heart-pounding, bone-crushing action, and a star-studded lineup of the world’s best riders and animal athletes.” It may also be your first and last chance to see the legendary riding champ Ryan Dirteater, of Hulbert, Okla., perform: Not only is this his first ride in Little Rock, but 2020 will be his final season. For the kids, the Miniature Bull Riders (Professional Bull Riders, but children) will also be performing. Catch round one on Friday night and round two on Saturday night; get tickets at verizonarena.com.
