I've had more fun at concerts in Montana than I've had at concerts anywhere else, and what makes the difference is how great Montanans are as audience members. Bands talking about how amazed they are at how much fun we're having is a routine when you attend shows here, and no, they're not just saying that. I've played in bands and seen so many, I can tell when they're truly vibing with a crowd that's going wild and when they're simply trying to rev everyone up. Here's a list of bands that have played shows here and should come back ASAP:

Dropkick Murphys

I think our mutual Irish heritage makes Dropkick Murphys and Montanans natural allies. These guys used to perform here pretty often, but not since the 2020 as far as I know.


Another band that's played in Montana somewhat regularly but haven't since 2020, again as far as I know. Hopefully Montana will be added on these tours again now that they're back in full swing.

Pearl Jam

Their bassist is from Havre, so I think they'll be back again. Fingers crossed.


Hopefully they visit us again soon because they won't be touring for much longer. I'd like to see them one last time before I have to say so long and thanks for all the shoes.


They performed in Billings, but then cancelled their show in Missoula... so what I'm saying is they sorta owe us.

Less Than Jake

I was there for their first (and I think only) show in Montana and that night was magic. They're one of the bands I've seen that kept commenting about how great the crowd was, which I've never seen Less Than Jake do before in any of the other places I've seen them perform.

Snoop Dogg

Ok, I know Snoop Dogg is a rapper, not a band, but you get what I mean.

The Rolling Stones

We were so lucky to even see them once that I won't complain if that's all we get. I feel the same way about Elton John and Paul McCartney.

16 of Montana's Wild & Crazy Laws 😍

✔️ FYI: 'Big Sky Country' is big on crazy!

🤠 Surprised? So were we. After all, who expects a state with famously conservative politics and traditional values to have such colorful, crazy-@$$ laws?

💗 PS, it bears repeating that Idaho loves Montana! The Gem State's neighbors to the southwest mirror our own penchant for bizarre laws and quirky customs!
