Award-winning country duo Montgomery Gentry built a legion of fans through their music and their rebel lifestyle that recently caught the attention of The Professional Championship Bullriders, and now the two powerhouses have teamed up for a multi-city arena tour beginning in January 2012. The Professional Championship Bullriders Tour features 35 of the nation’s top riders battling the toughest, rankest bulls in the world, and now fans will have the added bonus of a Montgomery Gentry concert after the dust settles on the arena floor.
“We’re pairing some of the toughest superstars in all of professional bull riding and the rowdiest duo in all of country music,” said a Professional Championship Bullriders spokesman. “This tour will be an affordable night of entertainment for the entire family including plenty of non-stop action that will keep you on the edge of your seat.”
The first two dates to go on sale are the tour kick off January 13 & 14, 2012 at Battle Creek, Michigan’s Kellogg Arena and the February 3rd date at Chicago’s Sears Center Arena. Ten dates are confirmed so far, and additional dates throughout 2012 will announced in the near future.
“We’ve done bull riding and rodeo shows our entire careers,” said Montgomery Gentry’s Troy Gentry. “Our audiences definitely cross over, and to be on a full-blown tour with these guys really takes it to a new level.”
“Yeah, people say we’re crazy for what we do, but it’s nothin’ like these bull riders,” added MG’s microphone-spinning Eddie Montgomery. “You’ll probably see us in the crowd every night watchin’ these guys try to ride a 2000-pound pissed off bull. Now that’s some entertainment!”
