Ready for another big concert announcement? Alright, here you go: Fitz & The Tantrums are coming to the Kettlehouse Amphitheater on Tuesday, August 17th.

This one's pretty exciting for a few reasons: first off, Fitz and the Tantrums are a great live band, and have amassed some pretty beloved and popular hits over the course of their four studio albums.

But, for an extra bit of cool, Fitz and the Tantrums actually have a local tie to Missoula. Drummer and co-founder John Wicks (not to be confused with John Wick, noted dog-lover) lives right here in Missoula and actually works to be a major part of the community. He's the co-owner of Drum Coffee, which has a few locations in town. We even talked about him a while back when he was having free coffee delivered to local healthcare workers at the start of the pandemic.

So to get Fitz & The Tantrums playing at Kettlehouse is definitely an exciting prospect, and is another great addition to a summer concert lineup that's quickly becoming pretty stacked. If you're looking to go, tickets go on sale this Friday at, and the pre-sale begins on Thursday.
