Tester and Pearl Jam team up for "Rock On Jon" tickets at Missoula concert

Posted: Updated:

Senator Jon Tester is teaming up with rock band Pearl Jam to support Tester's reelection to the United States Senate.

"Rock on Jon" ticket packages will be released on July 13, according to a press release from Tester's campaign office. 

The Rock On Jon tickets will get attendees into the August 13 Pearl Jam concert at Washington-Grizzly Stadium in Missoula, as well as a Tester campaign reception featuring Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament the day before. 

Ament and Tester were both raised in Big Sandy, Montana, and are close friends. The proceeds from tickets sold as "Rock on Jon" packages will go to benefit Jon Tester's reelection campaign. 

“Team Tester is excited to have Jeff Ament back on his home turf along with Pearl Jam for their show this August, ”said Chris Meagher, spokesman for Montanans for Tester, in a press release. “Jeff knows Montana can’t find a better man than Jon Tester, who is fighting for Montana every day. We’re looking forward to a great couple days in Missoula in August.”
