The PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour (PWVT) will buck back into the North Charleston Coliseum next month. The PBR 2021 Collision at the Coliseum, the fourth event of the 2021 PWVT season, features back-to-back nights of white-knuckle man vs. beast competition on February 26th and 27th.
The sport of bull riding’s premier expansion tour will be back in North Charleston after debuting in the Coliseum during the 2018 season. During the 2020 iteration, just before the COVID-19 shutdown, Brazilian Alex Cerqueira (Iguatemi, Brazil) emerged victorious, going a perfect 2-for-2 in the one night event. Cerqueira was able to parlay his early season success into his career-first qualification for the PBR World Finals, and finished the year No. 19 in the world standings.
Forty-five riders will attempt to conquer the best bovine athletes in the country for eight seconds in a battle of true strength and grit. Each rider enters the season having one goal: being named the PWVT Champion when the dust settles after the last ride, and receiving the championship gold buckle that accompanies the title. The points available at the Collision at the Coliseum will be crucial to help make one rider’s goal a reality.

Tickets start at $15 (plus applicable fees), and are available for purchase online at PBRTIX.com, Ticketmaster.com, or at the North Charleston Coliseum Advance Ticket Office (Advance Ticket Office hours are Wednesday and Friday 11 am to 3 pm).
