For two nights, the best up and coming bull riders in the world will battle the sport’s fiercest bovine athletes during the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) BlueDEF Tour (BDT) event at PPL Center on Friday, September 16 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, September 17 at 6 p.m. The thrilling 8-second rides and heart-stopping wrecks make the BlueDEF Tour one of the most exciting sporting events to see live.
New to the event this year are PBR Elite Seats. This $100 ticket includes premium seating and a 60 minute pre-event tour on the dirt and behind the scenes that will give fans the opportunity to see the PBR up-close and personal while learning about the only sport pitting a lightweight vs. heavyweight in the same ring.
Each rider faces one bull on Friday night. The riders return on Saturday night to face another bull, followed by the Top 10 scoring riders of the weekend moving on to the championship round. At the end of the competition, the rider with the highest combined score will be crowned the event champion.
Allentown will be the 21st stop on the 2016 BlueDEF Tour, which spans the nation in cities including Bakersfield, California; Wichita, Kansas; Dayton, Ohio; Corpus Christi, Texas and Fresno, California.
