With a career spanning five decades, Ween has built a cult-like following that rivals any fandom. Playing everything from funk to country to psych rock to heavy metal – Ween’s music might be easiest defined as… well, undefinable. Take a tiny glance into their diverse catalog and listen to “Ocean Man,” “I Got to Put the Hammer Down,” “She Wanted to Leave,” and “Happy Colored Marbles” and you’ll get a completely different sound each song.
Ween played the second show ever at KettleHouse Amphitheater back on July 16, 2017 (photos). The sold out show is still the #1 favorite for many Montana concertgoers and Ween fans have been begging for their return ever since.
Luckily with two shows locked in for a summer weekend on the Blackfoot — it should prove to be the return we’ve all been waiting for. Get your tickets early because they’re bound to move quickly!
PUBLIC ON SALE: Tickets go on sale Friday, January 19th at 10am at the Top Hat in Missoula, online or by phone at 1 (800) 653-8000. General Admission standing pit tickets, reserved stadium seating tickets, and general admission lawn tickets are available. Shuttle and parking tickets for this event will also be available. All ages are welcome.
2016 was a monumental year for Ween. More than four years after their last performance, the band reunited for three instantly sold out shows in each Broomfield, CO and New York, NY, made headline and festival appearances across the country, and released their first live album since 2008.
Formed by Aaron Freeman and Mickey Melchiondo, Jr. in New Hope, PA, Ween has taken on a cult-like status with legions of devoted fans around the world. Beginning with six self-released cassettes in the 1980s followed by 11 studio albums, 6 live albums and a smattering of EPs through the 1990s and 2000s, Ween’s recorded output is far-reaching in its styles moving from rock to punk to psychedelic to country to alternative and all points in between.
However, it’s the band’s incendiary live shows that have truly cultivated its diehard fan base. Ween consists of Gene and Dean Ween alongside longtime band members Claude Coleman, Jr. (drums), Dave Dreiwitz (bass) and Glenn McClelland (keyboards).
