It was a good day for the biggest concert in Missoula’s history. Temperatures were in the mid-60s Wednesday evening at Washington-Grizzly Stadium, and predictions of rain didn’t come true. The only hassle at the Rolling Stones concert appeared to be some extra long lines as the crowd for the sold-out event slowly filtered through security checkpoints and into the stadium. Inside, fans of all ages were treated to a multimedia, fireworks-enhanced extravaganza. Missoula resident Dean Michael, 50, said it was exciting to be part of an event that drew such a broad cross-section of people. “The Stones will be on the road forever, because they can draw the kids, the younger adults and people my age,” he said. “That’s pretty cool to see and be a part of.” Sentinel High School band director Gary Gillett stood in an aisle near the stage, helping fans find their seats. He said he managed to get a spot ushering at the event after a friend put his name on a list. “I’m surprised how many local people are here,” he said. “I wasn’t sure if it would be that way. I'm seeing a lot of parents of my students. I think they put their kids up in the cheap seats, and kept the floor seats for themselves.” Many concertgoers came prepared for unpredictable weather, and most left their formal wear at home. Chris Cox, who made the trip from Billings with his wife, Cathy, arrived in a camouflage jacket and baseball cap. “Hey, we’re Montanans,” he quipped. “It might be the middle of July, but we know to bring our parkas.” Cathy Cox said her two great-nephews also were at the show; their grandmother, a Stones fan herself, bought them tickets. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime thing,” Cathy Cox said.
