Conscious hip hop artist Brother Ali will bring The Travelers Tour to Montana for two shows in 2022 with support from Mally & DJ Last Word. They’ll be playing at the The ELM in Bozeman on Thursday, March 3rd (which was announced earlier this year) and at The Wilma in Missoula on Friday, March 4th.
Over the past two decades, Brother Ali has earned wide critical acclaim for his deeply personal, socially conscious, and inspiring brand of hip-hop. Under Rhymesayers Entertainment, he’s unleashed a series of lauded projects, establishing himself as one of the most respected independent voices in music. In 2017, he released All the Beauty in This Whole Life, a 15-track collection produced entirely by Atmosphere’s Anthony “Ant” Davis. Ali dropped Secrets & Escapes, his 7th full-length album in 2019 and in 2021, he released Brother Minutester, Vol. 1., a “raw and rare collection of self-produced, one-minute songs recorded in tour buses, hotel rooms and backstages around the world.”
Brother Ali has been mentored by legends like Chuck D and Rakim, performed on shows like Jimmy Fallon and Conan, and was featured in Rolling Stone’s 40th anniversary edition and Source Magazine’s legendary “Hip Hop Quotables.”
PUBLIC ON SALE: Tickets for both shows are on sale now at the Top Hat in Missoula, online or by phone at 1 (800) 514-3849. General Admission standing room only tickets will be available. Visit the specific event page below for tickets and more info.
