Rodeo 4 Life to Ride High In 2022

Thursday 2 September 2021 10:00am

MJ Rowles Rodeo for Life, Australia’s richest bull ride and country music concert, will aim to shine a spotlight on organ donation and funding essential, life-saving organ transplant research when it hits the Wollongong stage in March 2022.

The electrifying rodeo sports event that pits some of Australia’s toughest bull riding champions against some of the country’s meanest bulls will now take centre stage at the WIN Entertainment Centre on Saturday, March 26, 2022.

The event has been rescheduled in response to the extended COVID-19 restrictions in Greater Sydney and the need to protect the health of both the participants and the community who have been strong
supporters of this exhilarating spectacular and the cause that inspired it.

Event producer, long-time rodeo man and liver transplant recipient Doug Vickers OAM said while he regretted the need to postpone the event for the second time, he was committed to giving the Illawarra
something to celebrate when restrictions do ease.

“The Illawarra was an avid supporter of Rodeo 4 Life in 2019 and the region has once again shown its appreciation for this unique blend of sporting skill and full-length country music concert by eight-time
Golden Guitar winner Travis Collins,” he said.

“Our audiences also know they are supporting an important cause with 100 percent of profits from the event dedicated to organ transplant research at the Royal Prince Alfred’s Transplant Institute. We hope they stay with us through this journey so we can share with them an amazing night of fun next March.”

All tickets purchased for October 23, 2021 remain valid for the March 26, 2022 date and ticketholders do not need to do anything – just turn up on the night. Current ticketholders who cannot make the March spectacular can submit a refund request to Ticketmaster before 5pm on Saturday, 2nd October.

The MJ Rowles Rodeo 4 Life showcases daredevil cowboys competing for the championship title and $50,000 in prizemoney.

The night includes a full-length live concert by eight-time Golden Guitar winner and back-to-back CMC Male Artist of the Year, CMAA Male Artist of the Year and CMA Global Artist Award winner Travis Collins, who will perform some of his greatest hits.

All tickets purchased go in the draw to win a Volkswagen Polo worth $19,990 thanks to Kinghorn Motors Nowra. The winning ticket will be drawn on the night and you must be in the audience to win.

Fans can also choose to purchase a pre-event VIP package including a meet & greet with bull riding champions and Golden Guitar winner Travis Collins, a photo opportunity with one of the bulls, official
program, commemorative trucker cap and Travis Collins CD.

Tickets start at $60pp and are on sale from noon, 2nd September 2021. Book at Ticketmaster.
