Those same mountains will serve as the picturesque backdrop for the new live music event.“It’s an opportunity to put our amazing town and venue on the big stage, an opportunity to put some of the best musicians in the world in front of a crowd from our community,” Ladd said. “These guys have played in front of hundreds of thousands in single shows, and now they’ll play in front of 4,500. It’ll be a one of kind experience.”“This show is going to be awesome and I am looking forward to the town of Big Sky and the surrounding area coming out to rock with us,” McCready told Explore Big Sky. “Maybe this can turn into something that lasts.”Tickets to the inaugural Peak to Sky go on sale on April 19th.
