Red Butte Garden full concert lineup announced


1 comment
What do Wilco, Al Green, Andrew Bird and Bonnie Raitt have in common? Not much except they are part of the full lineup of 26 concerts announced today.---

Red Butte Garden, the “Best Outdoor Concerts/Events” (2012 City Weekly Best of Utah award) is hosting more shows than ever before -- up five from last year’s record-setting 21. And there are a mix of familiar faces (Brandi Carlile, Steve Martin, Michael Franti), some absolute gems (see above) and enough sonic goodness to sate even the thirstiest summer concertgoer.

Here's the full lineup. Full and partial season-ticket packages go on sale on April 23. Tickets go on sale for Red Butte Garden members April 30, and for the general public on May 7. To scope prices, check out the Red Butte Garden website.
