The two-hour adrenaline rush show will feature a star-studded lineup of world-class bulls, including bull icon Hellfire, pitted against champions and the hottest bull riders on the tours today. As the fourth stop of the nationwide tour, Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Tour will have three World Champions and nine Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifiers competing, including but not limited to Jeff Askey, Koby Radley, Dustin Boquet, and Eli Vastbinder.
“The last time a group of bull riders like this were in Las Vegas was during NFR, and if you missed them in December, you can see several world champions and the NFR guys back in town at the South Point,” said Hedeman. “It is going to be an intense weekend of competition plus some great family fun entertainment, and no bull riding experience or knowledge is necessary to enjoy this high energy adrenaline rush show,” said Hedeman.
In addition, top-shelf entertainment by past NFR entertainer of the Year, JJ Harrison, Tuff Hedeman Bullfighters and grand pyrotechnic introductions will add to the adrenaline rush competition.

“Every year I look forward to providing the Las Vegas community with a top-rated bull riding competition and some great entertainment,” said Tuff Hedeman. “This year we will also be at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center with a live bull for fans to get photos with and then watch him buck two days later as an amazing athlete.”
