Large Concert Venues in Salt Lake City

If you grew up in Salt Lake City, you know the pain of seeing your favorite artist announce their world tour and not seeing Salt Lake City on the list of stops. Well, that is changing very quickly! Salt Lake City is now an important tour stop for big name tours as the city connects the West Coast and the Midwest. While you most likely won’t see local openers at these shows and you might be stuck in the middle of a huge general admission crowd, these huge concerts are well worth the price for the spectacle alone.
