Here are the National Finals Rodeo first performance results from Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018.
The National Finals Rodeo started its annual 10-day run at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas on Thursday.
On opening night at the NFR, Mason Clements drew a horse named Colorado Bulldog and rode him to a score of 86.5 points. He finished second in the go-round and earned $26,230.77.
FGL has opened its extended engagement at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood. The first two shows have reportedly sold out, including Wednesday’s performance, which Hubbard said was played to “the loudest Wednesday night crowd ever.”
When the sun goes down, the lights turn up for what the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo appropriately terms NFR After Dark. And while those lights certainly shine bright at viewing parties, after-parties and concerts up and down the Strip, there are plenty of great gatherings all around town.
Despite selling out all 10 nights every year since 1987, there’s been no resting on laurels among all those with any involvement in the Wrangler NFR.
The belt buckles are big. So is the concert lineup. With the National Finals Rodeo back in town, here are 10 top shows soundtracking the festivities.
