Frontier Nights® lineup announced from WNFR in Las Vegas
CHEYENNE, WY – December 5, 2019: In an announcement made from the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, Cheyenne Frontier Days™ (CFD) announced all but two of the nights for the 2020 Frontier Nights® entertainment series. The Professional Bull Riders (PBR) will return with its exclusive Last Cowboy Standing series and the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) Rodeo will return to the arena in 2020.
Tickets will go on sale Friday, December 13 at 9 a.m. MST at www.cfdrodeo.com, the Cheyenne Frontier Days™ Ticket Office and by calling (307) 778-7222.
Performers announced were Cody Johnson with Aaron Watson, Trace Adkins, Thomas Rhett with Hardy, Eric Church with Ashley Mc Bryde and Blake Shelton with John King.
“We are thrilled with the lineup so far for 2020,” Contract Acts Chairman Randy Krafft said. “We are still working on our remaining shows and will announce them as we get them signed.”
For two nights, the Top-40 stars of the PBR will return to attempt to conquer the sport’s rankest bulls on the historic Wyoming Dirt at Cheyenne Frontier Days, strapping in for their shot to make the buzzer. A rider must stay on his bull for 8 seconds to have the opportunity to advance. If he gets bucked off, he is out of the competition. The grueling match between Man and Beast continues until one prevails and is crowned the Last Cowboy Standing.
Additionally, the 124th 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.
Concert ticket prices range from $39 to $89, with daily rodeo tickets costing $18 to $35. A $3 discount is offered on rodeo tickets and $5 discount on concert tickets purchased before July 1.

Las Vegas (Nov. 10, 2018) – PBR (Professional Bull Riders) today announced its popular Last Cowboy Standing will take place during Cheyenne Frontier Days (CFD) in 2019.
PBR CEO Sean Gleason announced the new location of the PBR Major, scheduled for July 22-23 at Cheyenne Frontier Days Arena, during the PBR World Finals at T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this evening.
The new summer season Major, a higher-profile regular-season event offering more World standings points and prize money, expands on a partnership between the leading bull riding league and world’s largest outdoor rodeo.
In July, 2018, PBR produced the final CBR Championship event during Cheyenne Frontier Days as well as a new Touring Pro Division event. Both events were brought to fans live on RidePass, the PBR’s western sports digital network.
From 2011 to 2018, Last Cowboy Standing had competed in Las Vegas, which remains home of the PBR Championship Week and the PBR World Finals.
“PBR is thrilled to pair Last Cowboy Standing with one of the world’s greatest rodeo and western sports celebrations,” Gleason said. “This marquee event extends our premier series schedule into the summer and is sure to be a highlight of the entire PBR season – one every fan will want to experience, and every cowboy will want to win.”
“We are honored to be selected as a stop in the premier bull riding tour of all,’” said Tom Hirsig, CEO, CFD. “Last Cowboy Standing fits right in line with the Western brand that is ‘The Daddy of ’em All.’ Cheyenne Frontier Days is excited to reunite our partnership with the Professional Bull Riders, two organizations sharing the common goal of preserving Western heritage and the cowboy way of life.”
Cheyenne Frontier Days is the premier celebration of cowboy life and Western entertainment that takes place each July. The 10-day festival features the world’s largest outdoor rodeo, concerts by top name entertainers, dining, shopping, educational exhibits, Native American Indian performances, a Western Art show, U.S.A.F Thunderbirds performance, pancake breakfasts, parades that feature antique carriages and Western pageantry galore.
