Home A & E Red Butte Garden Summer Concert Series Line-Up Announced

Red Butte Garden Summer Concert Series Line-Up Announced

It is said that in spring, a young man’s fancy turns to love. That might be true, but I’m not a young man. I’m a fully-grown woman who awaits, impatiently at times, the announcement of Red Butte Gardens’ Summer Concert Series. It’s the surest sign that summer is actually on its way.

And it’s here! It’s finally here!

Get your coolers and plastic wine tumblers ready because this year’s Red Butte line-up is the best, and most generationally diverse, yet.

The season kicks-off with the previously announced and already sold-out contemporary folk band The Lumineers on May 25, and reaches into the 90’s for a repeat visit from Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals (June 29), Goo Goo Dolls with Collective Soul and TribeSociety (September 14) and The Barenaked Ladies and OMD stop by with 80’s icon and perennial Utah favorite Howard Jones on July 13. Speaking of the 80’s—Culture Club (August 8), Blondie (September 7) and Tears For Fears (July 6) all make stops at The Butte this summer.

But wait, that’s not all! Step into your way, way back machine to see Jackson Browne (August 24), blues great Buddy Guy (June 1), Pat Benatar with Neil Girlaldo and Melissa Etheridge (August 17) and The Monkees (June 16). And go even further back when the Utah Symphony takes the stage (August 11) to play some classical tunes.

As always, there’s a healthy serving of roots and roots rock at Red Butte this year, Neko Case, k.d. Lang and Laura Veirs (July 8), The Avett Brothers (July 26), Willie Nelson & Family (July 28), Ryan Adams (August 15), Wilco (August 30) and the season wraps-up on September 15 with Jason Isbell (who last played Red Butte during a freak June snow storm).

Contemporary acts Lake Street Dive (August 14), Gary Clark, Jr. (July 31) and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (June 20) also have a place in the line-up.

The complete list is below. Tickets go on sale April 25 at 7pm for Garden Members and on May 2 at 9am for the General Public. More details about membership can be found here.

And, be sure to register for an account at Ticketfly.com early to avoid day-of-sale complications—some of these shows will sell out very, very quickly.

I’ll see you on the lawn.
