Brandi Carlile, ZZ Top, Wilco and Sleater-Kinney, and more. The week started off with a flurry of concert announcements for KettleHouse Amphitheater, plus a new date for the Wilma, indicating a summer will look and sound a lot more like 2019 than 2020.

Carlile, pulling a move like Garth Brooks in Billings a few years ago, sold out multiple concerts so fast she added an extra one.

After her tickets for dates at KettleHouse Amphitheater on July 2-3 disappeared the morning they were available, Logjam Presents announced the Grammy winner and member of The Highwomen supergroup added a date on July 4. 

Tickets are on sale now. Head to logjampresents.com for information on pre-sales, on-sale date and ticket prices. Logjam said they plan to be able to invite in full capacity of 4,000 people by July. Tickets for parking and shuttles are also available.
