Gary Allan to Perform at PBR’s Last Cowboy Standing May 11
March 25, 2013 by VegasNews.com
The multi-platinum and chart-topping artist Gary Allan will perform at the official after-party for the Professional Bull Riders Last Cowboy Standing Saturday, May 11 at 9:30 p.m. at the Mandalay Bay Beach Club at Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Mandalay Bay Beach will be one of the most unique settings ever for a PBR after-party, offering fans not only a chance to mingle poolside with the stars of the PBR, but also to cool off from the Las Vegas heat as they enjoy Allan’s live performance.
“Gary Allan’s music has been an integral part of the PBR brand for nearly five years,” said Sean Gleason, COO of the PBR. “When he plays live at an event, it is truly special. Gary Allan on stage at the Beach at Mandalay Bay is the perfect way to culminate the third annual Last Cowboy Standing.”
Dan Quinn, vice president of entertainment at Mandalay Bay, said, “We’re very excited to have Gary Allan play at the Beach in May. We have partnered with PBR in the past, holding several PBR World Finals and special events in our Events Center. The opportunity to host Allan at the Beach in conjunction with the Last Cowboy Standing event allows us to expand our hospitality and give PBR fans an even more memorable, entertaining and unique experience.”
Allan has been associated with the PBR for several years. He opened the PBR’s Dickies® Iron Cowboy event at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, in 2010, the last time he performed at a PBR event. The title track from Allan’s last studio album, “Get Off On The Pain,” has been used for the opening of PBR’s television productions for the past two seasons. He even shot the music video for the song at a Built Ford Tough Series event. This season, Allan’s song “Bones,” off of his new studio album “Set You Free,” is being used as the opener for PBR’s televised event.
Allan said, “The band and I are pumped to play another PBR event; their fans are amazing. I can’t wait to hit the Mandalay Bay Beach for the Last Cowboy Standing.”
