2015 entertainment schedule

CINCH Rodeo Shootout and Championship Bull Riding World Finals Return;
Frontier Nights® lineup announced

CHEYENNE, WY -- November 18, 2014: The Cheyenne Frontier Days™ (CFD) General Committee announced all but one of the names for the Frontier Nights® entertainment series at an event on Tuesday night.  In addition to the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) Rodeo event, the CINCH Rodeo Shootout and the Championship Bull Riding (CBR) World Finals event will return to the Cheyenne arena in 2015.

Tickets will go on sale Saturday, November 22 at 9 a.m. MST.

Big & Rich, Aerosmith, Alabama and Toby Keith will join the Frontier Nights® lineup along with Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban, whose performances were announced from the CFD stage on July 26.

“We've been working on our 2015 line up since last year at this time. There were several acts we set our sights on for this year, and we have been able to book several of those. We've been diligent in conducting consumer focus groups, customer surveys and listening to what our customers have been telling us on social media. We take our customer input and try to book the acts our customers want to see. In terms of night shows, we have broken several records the past two years and we think our lineup this year will set some new records,” Contract Acts Chairman, Larry Kehl said.  “The information for the first Friday night, as well remaining supporting acts, will be announced at a later date,” Kehl added.

Championship Bull Riding will be returning to CFD to crown the 2015 World Champion. The two night event is the culmination of the 12- month 2015 Road to Cheyenne televised bull riding tour where bull riders accumulate points towards the World Champion title. Up for grabs is one of the most prestigious titles in bull riding, and a $100,000 bonus check won by Sage Kimzey of Strong City, Oklahoma in 2014. The 2015 CBR World Finals is also the final destination of the CBR Bull Team Challenge World Finals featuring the top bucking bulls of the industry. Competing on a team consisting of three bulls per team, last year’s bull team winner, Cude Energy owned by Benny Cude of the 7 Rocking X Ranch in Priddy, Texas, took home a check for $100,000.

Additionally, the 119th annual Cheyenne Frontier Days will feature nine days of professional rodeo with the PRCA, hundreds of vendors, a full carnival and everything else fans have come to expect from the “Daddy of ‘em All.®”

The CINCH Rodeo Shootout will return after success with fans in its inaugural year. The fast-paced, condensed format will feature 40 top contestants in bareback, saddle bronc, steer wrestling, barrel racing and bull riding in one afternoon.  

Night show ticket prices will range from $26 to $68, with daily rodeo tickets costing $18 to $32. A $3 discount is offered on rodeo tickets purchased before July 1.
