(Tulsa, Okla.) February 11, 2023 – On a historic night in Tulsa, BOK Center hit a huge milestone as it set a new single-day PBR attendance record when welcoming 9,494 fans to Saturday night's event. This makes the event tonight the highest attended single night of PBR in BOK Center's 15 year history. The event also set a PBR attendance record for the weekend in Tulsa with both nights having a combined total attendance of 15,282 and making it the highest attended PBR weekend in BOK Center history.
“PBR's record-breaking weekend at BOK Center is a testament to the excitement of the sport and the legacy of the PBR organization,” said ASM Global Vice President and General Manager Bryan Crowe. “Over the last 15 years, there have been so many great moments for PBR in Tulsa.
