Bus Station to Become Concert Venue

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

With a new owner, and a new lessee, the Billings bus station downtown will no longer be a transportation hub.

The building had been used in the Oscar nominated movie “Nebraska.” Now, Sean Lynch with 11:11 Presents will lease the iconic building to use as a concert venue starting this fall. He says the company has been growing so quickly, it made sense to get a venue. Lynch says to expect concerts of every genre, from country to hip hop to rock.

"It’s just an iconic building in Billings and I think everybody is aware of where it is and what it is,” Lynch says. “There seems to be multiple venues around the United States that have been made out of previous Greyhound bus stations so I thought that it was a good spot. There’s going to be parking available and there's room for growth as well."

"We’re hoping we can find something as soon as possible,” says Kevin Pursey, Jefferson Lines director of marketing. “The big thing is to support this market. It’s an important market for us.”

Jefferson Lines, which currently uses the building, has corporate employees in town looking for a new space. Pursey says they will have to move out by September 16, but plan to do so earlier.
