Hey Bangor, it's time to get outta the house, and grab the bull by the horns!

After a grueling year plus pause, the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, is ready to do what they do best, host amazing live events, and this one will feature plenty of heart stopping action. In fact, the upcoming show was one of the very last to take place before the pandemic lockdown, that had us all wondering when things will return to normal. That time has arrived.

For the sixth straight year, the Cross Center will host the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Bangor Classic, with three exciting nights of action, from Friday, July 23, through Sunday, July-25th.

Points towards the World Championship and the $1 million bonus are on the line, with rider who gets the highest score over the four rounds of action will be the champ, with a sweet, 2021 Bangor Classic buckle and thousands of dollars.

Tickets for the 2021 Bangor Classic at the Cross Insurance Center will be available, this Friday, May 21 at 10 am, and start at $15 each. They can be purchased online at PBRTIX.com, over the phone by calling 800-732-1727 or at TicketMaster.com.

Tickets for the first event back inside Cross Insurance Center since March of 2020, will be sold at a limited capacity, in cooperation with local and state guidance. Also, as a part of PBR’s safety protocols, the tickets will be sold in "PODs", minimizing fan crossover. "PODs" are available in groups from 2-8 seats.

Over the years, the Z Morning Show, has had the pleasure of having some of the bull riders in the studio to chat about their experiences out on the road.

Last year, The PBR Velocity 2020 Tour rocked the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, and a gentleman named, Jeremy T. Grant posted some very cool professionally shot video that goes behind the scenes to show you all the exciting bull riding action.

Let's hope this is a great kick off to going out and enjoying life, sporting events. music, and all the things we have missed so badly!
