Try and remember what life was like 24 years ago. When The Blaze first aired, George Bush was President. 9/11 hadn't occurred. Nu Metal was popular. And, Missoula was in dire need of a proper ROCK radio station.

A few years ago we started writing down all the artists that have performed at the Blaze Birthday Bash over the years. From Taproot in 2002 to Korn in 2011. Or how about the time we shared a birthday celebration with Michael Paulson of Volbeat in 2014?

Now, 24 years later, we are getting together for another Blaze Birthday Bash, featuring a LIVE performance from Breaking Benjamin.

Not only Breaking Benjamin returning to Missoula, but we are also getting a visit from Season 5 "American Idol" finalist, Chris Daughtry.


Tickets are ON SALE NOW! 

We have some fond memories of when our pal Ben Burnley was last in our part of the world. Breaking Benjamin headlined our first-ever Blaze Backyard Barbecue in 2016. They put on a magnificent show leaving us wanting more visits from Breaking Benjamin. Fast forward to 2020, and Breaking Benjamin returned to Missoula for a show with Korn at the Adams Center. This show was the last big gathering we had before the world fell into a pandemic. Looking back it was almost like one last party before the end of the world.

Check out footage from the Breaking Benjamin performance at the Adams Center.
