I absolutely love concerts. It's a place where I can let loose and enjoy the music and the crowd, especially rock music. Many rock shows have graced the Magic City, and I've enjoyed a good portion of them in person. Here are some of my absolute favorite ones.

The most recent entry on this list is a show I got to experience with my family and best friend. Hinder played at the Pub Station in August of 2019. The photo above shows me mid-headbang as I got to experience the band right on the rail. Hinder released their latest album, The Reign, in 2017 and recently spoke regarding the need to have live entertainment again.

Avenged Sevenfold and Hollywood Undead at MetraPark - 2011

The same friend and I got to experience Avenged Sevenfold and Hollywood Undead live at Rimrock Auto Arena when I was just a Junior at Skyview High School. Avenged Sevenfold had just released their Nightmare album the previous year and has since been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Adelita's Way at MontanaFair - 2014

The first time I ever took a photo with a band was at MontanaFair in 2014 with Adelita's Way. The photo has, unfortunately, since been lost. But, the memory of the show from the floor of Rimrock Auto Arena is still fresh in my mind. Adelita's Way is most popular by their album Home School Valedictorian, which was released in 2011.

My only regret was not taking enough photos of these shows. There's no doubt I'll be attending more shows in 2022, and when I do, you know a review of the show will come shortly afterward. Keep on rocking, Billings!
