Let’s be honest over past years that statement would have been rather sarcastic at best – but there’s no doubting that there’s been some great events held over the last twelve months or so.
The Summer has been even better with the Celtic Rock Festival at Cara Park probably being the highlight for me, especially as it even included a session for younger kids to enjoy, a huge bonus for parents who want to enjoy the atmosphere too.
For many of us who enjoy live music in Missoula, things have been slowly picking up year by year. Of course the visit of the Rolling Stones a few years back was probably a highlight but there have been many other great shows put on in the area.
The great thing is about attracting big names to the area to perform is that the benefits are multifold. Not only do you have the excitement of the concert itself, there’s the influx of visitors bringing in extra revenue to local businesses, the feel good factor and the wonderful publicity that staging a major concert has across the country.
We are now waiting eagerly for another one of the biggest names in rock to visit Sir Paul McCartney is staging his very first show in Missoula next week. The Beatles legend is sure to attract a sell out crowd although at time of writing there were still a few tickets left if you’re quick.
I can’t tell you what a big deal it is for me, the Beatles being one of my all time favorite bands and a huge part of my youth. For years I’ve watched every live concert I could see, everything from DVDs to a whole host of them which I found streaming on UK Netflix a few months ago. By the way to watch different versions of Netflix and indeed all online media sites, I strongly suggest a Smart DNS service which neatly bypasses every restriction you can find on these sites, a great investment.
Someone told me his voice isn’t what it was, but from what I’ve seen he never disappoints in his concerts even over the later ones. His latest album is already a best seller in the US since it’s October release, so it’s easy to see why the concert is generating such excitement.
See you there!
Just a quick note, I’ve previously recommended on these pages that using a UK IP proxy is the best way to access media content online that is normally blocked but I really think the DNS service recommended above is so much easier to use, well worth investing in the free trial.
