Rodeo fans in South Mississippi will have two opportunities to see the action in the dirt.

The Professional Bull Riders returns to the Coast Coliseum at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 10.

The Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour will feature some of the world’s best bull riders, with “high-energy lighting, sound and special effects.”

Fabiano Vieria of Brazil leads the Velocity tour with a pot for more than $8,000.

Tickets for PBR start at $15 and are available at Ticketmaster.com.

In January, cowboys and cowgirls will compete for a prize of $250,000 when the Professional Cowboy Association Rodeo Finals hit the Coliseum for three nights, Jan. 20-22. The finals will showcase bareback bronc riding, calf roping, saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, breakaway roping, ladies’ barrel racing, team roping and bull riding.

Audience members will have a chance to grab a $100 poker chip off the horn of an angry bull in the popular event “Money the Hard Way.”

Tickets start at $18 and more information can be found here.
