The Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats show announced for the KettleHouse Amphitheater originally scheduled for 2020 was rescheduled for Saturday, August 14th of this year, and quickly sold out. Good news for those who were unable to get a ticket, in fact, a couple of pieces of great news here. Another show has been announced for the same venue where the Under The Big Sky Festival recently took place near Whitefish.

Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats are scheduled for the night before the Missoula show, Friday, August 13th, at Big Mountain Ranch. The $45 early bird tickets are already gone, but you can still grab $55 general admission tickets here. The same opener as Missoula, Delta Spirit, will open, and there will also be a live rough stock rodeo. How's THAT for a Montana concert!? Doors will open at 5, with the rodeo starting at 6 p.m. and all ages are welcome.

The band played Missoula a couple of years ago on their way to the Sasquatch Festival at the Gorge in Washington. We ran into them at the Gorge and asked how they liked Missoula and Nathaniel enthusiastically talked about what a cool town we have and how blown away he was by two things: the excitement of the crowd at the Wilma, and, Missoula's ability to party hard. So I'm sure when they were invited back they were more than happy to oblige. I'm glad they are well, by the way, I was a bit worried when Nathaniel did a solo project and then appeared on SNL as a solo musical guest, but all is well and the Nightsweats will certainly be on board for these shows.

How about a free pair for Whitefish! Hit us up on the app and we'll put you into this week's drawing.
