LOUISIANA, Mo. — The Louisiana Area Historical Museum will host a concert by Montgomery County native and Nashville artist Bill Whyte at 7 p.m. Friday, July 1, at the Elks Lodge, 120 N. Fifth. The show will commemorate the Mo Mo craze of July 1972.
A Bigfoot-like creature is said to have stalked Pike County 50 years ago, causing a national stir. Whyte is the musician behind the song “Mo Mo the Missouri Monster” and many other tracks.
Advanced tickets for ages 13 and older are available for $5 each and can be purchased at the museum, 304 Georgia, from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday. Children 12 and under are free.
Doors open at 6 p.m. on July 1. A meal of pulled pork sandwiches and fries will be sold by the museum management. First come, first served.
Ticket sales will be limited on the day of the event, so advance purchases are encouraged. Additional ticketing options may be announced, but purchases requiring mailing will incur a $6 service charge.
The museum sells Mo Mo T-shirts. Children’s sizes are $15 each. Adult sizes are $20. A 2X adult shirt is $25 and a 3X is $30. All shirts are printed locally by Doris Henderson, with profits helping to offset the cost of the concert.
Additional information is available on the museum’s Facebook site.
