Concerts are back in a big way in 2021 - after not being able to see any live shows for all of 2020, I think people are itching to head back to a huge venue and scream their head off while their favorite artist performs an amazing show. And it's been so great to be able to hear about upcoming shows again - Sheryl Crow is set to perform at Kettlehouse Amphitheater this year (and Primus just confirmed that they'll be coming by, too), the Guns N' Roses show at Washington-Grizzly Stadium is still on, Northern Quest Resort and Casino in Spokane is filling out their summer schedule... it really feels like life is starting to return to normal.

And now, you can add a few more high-profile names to the calendar, as the MontanaFair in Billings has announced their concert lineup for this year.

On Friday, August 13th, pop superstar Kesha will be performing at the First Interstate Arena. And then, on Saturday, Cody Johnson is set to take the stage. And then finally, that Sunday, Eli Young Band are scheduled to perform.

That's a pretty stellar lineup right there, and I think more than a few Missoulians may end up making the road trip out there. Tickets for Cody Johnson and Eli Young Band are on sale right now; tickets for Kesha will go on sale TOMORROW, April 30th, at 10 AM - I have a feeling you'll want to get your tickets early on that one.

Think you'll be heading out to Billings to check out these shows at MontanaFair this year?

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
