Red Butte Garden is adding four August shows to its already packed summer concert schedule, with performers ranging from Yo-Yo Ma to ZZ Top.
The four additional shows, announced Monday, bring the garden’s slate to 26 shows within 63 days, starting July 30 with Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit and ending Sept. 30 with Emmylou Harris. The other shows were announced last week.
One of the added shows takes over the title for the most expensive ticket in Red Butte’s line-up. Not Our First Goat Rodeo — a collaboration among cellist Yo-Yo Ma and bluegrass musicians Chris Thile, Stuart Duncan and Edgar Meyer, along with Americana singer Aoife O’Donovan — tops the list at $94 for Red Butte members and $99 for the general public. That’s two bucks more expensive than the performer with previous high price: Who frontman Roger Daltrey.
Here are the four added shows:
Friday, Aug. 13 • Ballet West will perform three works: “Paquita,” “The Solo Year” and “Piece of My Heart.”Tickets are $45 for Red Butte Garden members, $50 for the general public.
Tuesday, Aug. 17 • Not Our First Goat Rodeo. Tickets are $94 for Red Butte Garden members, $99 for the general public.
Monday, Aug. 23 • ZZ Top, the legendary Texas rock trio. Tickets are $78 for Red Butte Garden members, $83 for the general public.
Wednesday, Aug. 25 • Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, the jazz combo, and Gov’t Mule, the Southern rock jam band, co-headlining. Tickets are $57 for Red Butte Garden members, $62 for the general public.
Tickets for the Ballet West and Not Our First Goat Rodeo shows go on sale to members on Thursday, and to the public on Friday. Tickets for the ZZ Top and Trombone Shorty / Gov’t Mule shows go on sale to members on June 21 and to the public on June 28, with the rest of the Red Butte slate.
