Montana Fair Needs a Classic Rock Show

Here’s a list of classic rock acts that are on tour this summer:

.38 Special, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Blue Oyster Cult, Boston, Cheap Trick, Credence Clearwater Revisited, Def Leppard, Fleetwood Mac, Foghat, Foreigner, the Guess Who, George Thorogood, Joan Jett, John Mellencamp, Judas Priest, Kenny Wayne Shephard, Kiss, Journey, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Motley Crue, Pat Benatar, Peter Frampton, Queen with Adam Lambert, REO Speedwagon, Rod Stewart, Slash, Styx, Ted Nugent, Toto, Yes, ZZ Top.  And that’s the short list.

And the best the Montana Fair could do for rock bands is Pop Evil?  Who?  I get it, classic rock bands are more expensive to book than some baby band nobody has ever heard of.  But Pop Evil couldn’t sell out the Babcock.  At $35 a ticket, they might not even fill the Railyard.  For God’s sake, I’d rather see a tribute band than Pop Evil.  And tribute bands are cheap to book.

Hell, the Shrine Auditorium has a better lineup than the Montana Fair this year.  So does the Magic City Blues Festival, for that matter.  It’s a shame that the powers that be underestimate the rock audience.
