The grunge goodness of Pearl Jam has graced the University of Montana many times, and now UM is preparing for the band’s largest Missoula show ever as the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers return on Monday, Aug. 13. This will be the band’s second concert in Washington-Grizzly Stadium. The first took place in June 1998.

• UM will close the M Trail and Mount Sentinel for the full 24 hours of Monday, Aug. 13, because of Stage II fire restrictions and tinder-dry grass conditions. That time coincides with the pre-concert tailgate from 3 to 8 p.m. and the 8 p.m. concert. UM officials will evaluate future Mount Sentinel closures as the fire season progresses.
