After canceling Thursday’s first go-round after a deadly shooting on the UNLV campus, the PRCA and Las Vegas Events boards met Thursday morning to make plans for the remainder of the National Finals Rodeo, which will start back up Friday.

Canceled first-round performance will be made up next Wednesday morning

While Thursday’s performance of the National Finals Rodeo was canceled because of the shooting that took place on the UNLV campus, the show will go on.

The PRCA and Las Vegas Events boards met Thursday morning to hammer out the details, which are: The first performance of this year’s NFR will take place at 5:45 p.m. Friday, Dec. 8, and continue for nine days. The sixth round will take place at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 13, and will be closed to the public.

Full refunds for the Thursday performance will be issued by LVE. If tickets were purchased through StubHub, a refund will be issued directly to the buyer by StubHub.

A moment of silence will occur at the start of Friday’s first performance.

“The PRCA is saddened by the tragedy that happened yesterday, and our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their friends and families,” PRCA CEO Tom Glause said in a statement issued by LVE and the PRCA. “We have worked closely with our partners in Las Vegas and the Thomas & Mack Center to work through the NFR schedule, while maintaining sensitivity to the events that took place. We will bring our fans together on Friday evening to share our support for this community.”
