On May 21, Vivint Arena announced that pop star Billie Eilish will perform on March 21, 2022. Although Eilish has performed in Utah before, this concert will mark her first appearance at the arena.
On May 10, Vivint Arena announced that comedian Jim Gaffigan will return to the arena on Dec. 11. Gaffigan previously brought his comedy to the venue in 2018.
“There is something very unique about Salt Lake City. It’s one of those places that for me, I wish there were, like, eight more metropolitan areas like Salt Lake City,” he told the Deseret News in 2018. “And it’s not just because people like my stand-up. I think there’s also an appreciation for the type of comedy I do. We live in an age where people have a tendency toward outrage, but there’s a trust that the audience in Salt Lake has with me — like, “We know he’s not a jerk. We know that it’s not constructed on shock.”
On April 7, Vivint Arena announced its first new, full-capacity show in more than a year. Country superstar Eric Church will bring his “The Gather Again” tour to the venue on April 30, 2022.
“I just want to play shows,” Church recently told Billboard. “Politics’ job is to divide — that’s how you win elections. Those things that unite us are music and sports. The times when, whether you’re a Democrat or Republican or whatever, you throw your arm around the person next to you. We need that. I need that.”
On April 9, the arena also announced new shows from country singer Kane Brown and Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. Brown will bring a concert to the venue on Oct. 9, 2021 as part of a tour that is stopping at all 29 NBA arenas, according to a a news release sent to the Deseret News.
Bocelli will perform at the arena on Oct. 30 in support of his latest album, “Believe.”
Vivint Arena has also announced that Roger Waters’ postponed concert has now been rescheduled for Sept. 8, 2022. Tickets already purchased remain valid for the new date, according to a news release sent to the Deseret News.
