Red Butte Garden Concert Series Announced

Because of the multimillion dollar renovation in 2008, the Red Butte Amphitheatre is now larger, the new stage shaped like the rear ramp of a cargo plane and the once u-shape line of port-a-potties has been replaced by large, easily accessible permanent bathrooms. However, what little shade-providing foliage the general lawn-seating venue once had has now been replaced by a number of table umbrellas located on a terrace at the back of the venue where only “VIP” members are lucky enough to take cover.

Regardless, this outdoor venue is one of the best in the state, in our opinion, and it happens to draw in big name artists each year such as Diana Krall, Bonnie Raitt, The Indigo Girls and Death Cab for Cutie. This year’s 21-concert (the largest to date) line-up is no different. It’s going to be a great summer at Red Butte … enjoy!
