SAN ANGELO, TX – If you didn't get your tickets to the Cinch Chute Out early Tuesday morning you're out of luck as the final performance of the 88th annual San Angelo Rodeo sold out online within minutes.
Tickets for all twelve rodeo performances went on sale at the coliseum box office and online at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning and San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo Senior Manager Brittini Kasczyk said the popular Cinch Chute Out performance on Saturday, Feb. 15 sold out quickly. "We tried to tell the online ticket vendor how big ticket sales were in San Angelo," Kasczyk said.
In years past, people lined up for hours outside the box office to purchase tickets when they went on sale. Kasczyk says they began online ticket sales in 2018. "About 90 percent of ticket sales have been online today with about ten percent at the box office. You could see people in line leave after they purchased their tickets on their phones."
Tickets for other performances are selling quickly as well. "The PRCA Short-Go (Friday, Feb. 14 at 7:30 p.m.) still has a few tickets available and the X-treme Bulls (Sunday, Feb. 2 at 2 p.m.) is going fast," said Kasczyk. "The main bulk of what we've seen today is the Saturday night performances are pretty big and then X-treme Bulls are our best sellers."
