Earlier this week, I saw MetraPark celebrating its successes for 2023... and it got me thinking... I wonder what is on deck for 2024 at First Interstate Arena and MetraPark? Sure, I can LOOK at their calendar, and figure that out quickly... but why not take it another direction?

Who Makes The Music Choices?

After the lineup at MetraPark & MontanaFair last year, I have a *few* complaints, but overall, I lived with it. Now, if you know me, I am a big supporter of the Metra & Fair. I am extremely glad to live in a city, after 26 YEARS of living elsewhere with only a showmobile for concerts, with an arena for events... concerts... and more.

However, with that said... maybe Metra should ask US, the paying people of Billings and Montana... WHO they should bring for events and music each year? I think so. And, after YOUR responses, it is CLEAR that YOU think so, too.

Hey, MetraPark! Listen up!

Now that I've taken the time to purge the hundreds of responses we got to my question of "What Concert Do You Want In Billings For 2024?", and checked my list twice... HERE is THE LIST of Artists the listeners of our Townsquare Media stations WANT TO HEAR AND SEE in 2024.

Here's hoping some of these are on their list...

#1: Jelly Roll

No contest on this one, at all. More than TRIPLE the amount of requests for Jelly Roll over any OTHER artist. He IS popular right now, after all. And his wife is hilarious on TikTok.

#2: Zach Bryan

From a rough start in 2017 to now being his 3rd EP in, Zach is one loved artist here in Montana!

Well, this was bound to appear. Morgan has been at the top of a lot of Montanan's Spotify lists for a while.
