There is a stampede of horsepower coming to Alliant Energy Powerhouse March 4th and 5th.  The Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo National Tour will be back with a trifecta of family fun, action, entertainment and intense competition in the lineup.

The world’s toughest cowboys are “In it to Win It” in their mission to be crowned Pro Rodeo’s World Champion. See the absolute best of the best in cowboy athletes unlike what they have seen before as competition heats up to qualify for the Multi-Million Dollar, National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.  It’s more than an 8-second ride at the Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo!

The Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo features the fan favorite events: Bull Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding and Bareback Riding …as well as Women’s Barrel Racing. The “Main Event” of the night, the Bonus Showdown Round, is an adrenaline rush gone western as the top two in each event go head-to-head, in a winner takes all finale as the winners are crowned!

ProRodeo’s best in entertainment will also be featured in the 2022 edition of the World’s Toughest Rodeo.  Roger Mooney, 2021 National Finals Rodeo announcer, and fan-favorite will call the action.  John Harrison, 6x National Finals Barrelman and 4x ProRodeo Comedy Act of the Year has worked coast to coast and will do what he does best…entertain the fans and keep them on the edge of their seats.

Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo doors open at 6 PM for a free (with ticket) Preshow.  Gather up the family and friends and be there when the doors open to “get down in the dirt”.  Come early for more fun and new experiences for 2022.  Only at World’s Toughest Rodeos can you treat your family to pony rides, meet the cowboys before the show, hop in the clown’s barrel for photos, sit on Sonny and Silver Dollar, our live photo bulls in the bucking chutes, or get up close and personal in behind the chutes tour with the World’s Toughest Rodeo crew.

Quad Cities Live Music Venues That Aren't Live Music Venues Anymore

Nostalgia Alert!.

We've compiled a quick list (by no means comprehensive) of venues in the Quad Cities that are no longer music venues but to us will ALWAYS hold a special place were we saw some great shows and made some incredible memories.

To many of us the live music scene wasn't just a concert here & there. It was an every weekend affair. And it didn't matter if it was a touring band or your buddy's band. We were going to be there with a beer in hand and scream along with guitars that were way too loud in a room that was improperly treated acoustically and make some bad decisions.
