March 5

A lecture at Delta Center

Jordan B. Peterson, the Canadian psychologist and author, has amassed legions of fans through his lectures on YouTube, his best-selling books and his regular appearances on such outlets as Joe Rogan’s podcast. He rejects the “conservative” label most detractors use — by way of comments considered anti-LGBTQ (he was demonetized from YouTube for calling gender-affirming care a “Nazi medical experiment-level wrong”) and calling postmodernism “cultural Marxism” — and prefers to call himself a “traditionalist.” Peterson is scheduled to speak Tuesday, starting at 7:30 p.m., at Delta Center, 301 W. South Temple, Salt Lake City. Tickets available at deltacenter.com.

The stars come out to dance

Fans of TV’s “Dancing With the Stars” will see some of their favorite dancers perform in person, when the reality-competition show’s live tour comes to Utah, Friday, for two shows — at 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. — at the Eccles Theater, 131 S. Main, Salt Lake City. The tour features eight of the show’s pro dancers (including Utah native Rylee Arnold), and season 32 fan favorite Harry Jowsey as a special guest. The show’s host is Emma Slater, who’s been a pro dancer on the show for 10 years, winning the coveted Mirrorball trophy with NFL star Rashad Jennings in 2017. Tickets are available at live-at-the-eccles.com.
