Music is back at Red Butte

A sure sign of summer — and a sign that people are putting the COVID-19 pandemic behind them: Concerts are back at Red Butte Garden. The series starts Wednesday, May 18, with Icelandic blues-rock band Kaleo (moved from the originally scheduled Tuesday, May 17 date), and continues Friday, May 20, with the Trey Anastasio Band, the side project of Phish’s guitarist. Both start at 7 p.m.; gates open at 6 p.m. Tickets for the public are $57 for Kaleo, $65 for Anastasio (subtract $5 for Red Butte Garden members), and available at redbuttegarden.org/concerts.
