Free Fallin: A Tribute to Tom Petty

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers are one of the biggest chart toppers in rock history, amassing dozens of hits and performing sold out shows for four decades. Free Fallin has successfully toured the country for almost 15 years and played before thousands of fans at many festivals, fairs, venues, and concerts. Along the way they have evolved into a complete and spectacular live music production. Their show, featuring all the best hits of Tom Petty, includes the instruments and costumes that re-create the authentic experience of a real Tom Petty concert! Their 2018 Broken Hearted Tour played more than 90 shows in 15 states, and included an invitation to play for Tom Pettys Birthday Weekend in his hometown of Gainesville, FL, where thousands of people from all over the world gathered to celebrate his music. The 2019 Legacy Tour played almost 20 states, and their current For Real Tour has them playing big stages throughout the country.

Free Fallin gives rock fans what they want – Tom Pettys greatest hits they all know and love. Sing along as we pay tribute to one of the greatest songwriters in rock music!

Together again, with you.

Beginning this October, join us for the joy and healing power of music as Luis Millán, our music director, begins his 12th year with our orchestra and we celebrate our 72nd year of bringing the world’s greatest music to Butte and to southwest Montana.

We are open!

We started welcoming audiences to the Mother Lode this spring with several Butte Dance School recitals. The theatre is open to full capacity and will continue to take precautions for sanitizing the theatre as well as providing sanitizing stations.

We are coordinating with performance companies to schedule the Mother Lode Series and other stand-alone events for the 2021/2022 season. Our goal is to safely provide a wide range of entertainment for Butte and Southwest Montana. Continue to check the site for updates as we confirm performances.

In the meantime, we have been working on improvements to the theatre including repair and painting the proscenium arch and pillars with funding in part from a Butte-Silver Bow Mil Levy grant.

Thank you and we look forward to entertaining you!
