Brick Breeden Fieldhouse is only about two hours way and is hosting two nights of Luke Bryan this Friday and Saturday. I've made the trip several times and have seen everybody from Restless Heart to Fleetwood Mac to a Cat/Griz basketball game. And am thinking about heading up on a school night to see James Taylor perform in July.

People often ask, "How come we can't get the BIG names here in Billings?" Well, it's complicated. Sometimes, it's a matter of price. Other time times, it's a scheduling conflict with something else that was already booked into Metra long before some particular act had even decided to tour.

But the good news is that if you ever head up to Bozeman to see a show because it's somebody that you just really, really want to see, it's only a couple of hours.
