Today, Rodeo 4 Life announced their line-up of legendary support acts in the Rodeo 4 Life spectacular at the WIN Entertainment Centre on Saturday 30 November 2019.
Some of Australia’s legends of rodeo will be there to add to the colour and spectacle of Rodeo 4 life including Glen Morgan as the Rodeo Announcer, Gene McDonald as the Rodeo Protection Clown and Big Al Wilson keeping the audience rolling in the aisles as the star Rodeo Clown.
Rodeo Announcer Glen Morgan is a name synonymous with Australian rodeo sports. Glen rode saddle broncs for more than 15 years winning 13 Australian titles. He also competed in Canada and the U.S.A in the 1980s and 1990s before retiring from championship rodeo competition to become one of the best rodeo announcers in the business.
Gene McDonald takes the prize for being bravest man in the arena in his role as the Rodeo Protection Clown. Protection clowns are risk takers who do more than entertain the audience during bull riding rodeo sports – they put their life on the line to distract the bulls away from grounded riders. Gene will have one of the most important and dangerous roles in the Rodeo 4 Life arena – to protect the star cowboys from the bulls when they hit the ground so they can get back to the chutes in safety.
BIG AL WILSON – RODEO CLOWN
It wouldn’t be a Rodeo spectacular without Big Al Wilson, Australia’s class act Rodeo Clown. A former pro bull rider and a seasoned veteran of rodeo entertainment, Big Al Wilson has won the title of Australia’s Rodeo Clown of the Year, 15 times. For 20 years, Big Al Wilson has performed at Australia’s largest rodeos including at all the National Finals in Australia and New Zealand, the National Finals for ABCRA, NRCA, APRA and NZPRA, and will be the star Clown again this year at all National Finals Rodeos.
