The summer concert season will be fast upon us, as acts of all musical genres bring their tours through Utah.
Some acts will fill up huge arenas, like the Vivint Arena — soon to restore its old name, the Delta Center. Others will play under the stars, at USANA Amphitheatre in West Valley City, Deer Valley in Park City, or Salt Lake City’s Red Butte Garden. Some will be part of concert series, like the Twilight shows in Salt Lake City and Ogden. And there are festivals, like Superbloom in Salt Lake City or the Fort Desolation Festival in Torrey.
Here’s a rundown, by venue, of the major concerts scheduled to play along the Wasatch Front — and a few other places — through the summer into the early fall. Enjoy the music.
