SALT LAKE CITY – Three famous artists will be making stops in Utah on their 2022 tours. All three will be performing at Vivint Arena. 

Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar will be bringing his “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers” Tour to Salt Lake City on Wednesday, August 24. He will be accompanied by cousin and rapper Baby Keem on all tour dates. Tanna Leone will perform on select dates.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, May 20 at 12 p.m. on Kendrick Lamar’s website.

“Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers” is Lamar’s fifth studio album. Coming off a five-year break since his last album, Lamar is stepping his foot back in the hip-hop world. With all of his last three albums going Platinum, music fans have been waiting for his return. 

Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood’s “The Denim & Rhinestones” Tour will stop at Vivint Arena on Thursday, November 17. The 8-time Grammy Award winner will be joined by Jimmie Allen on all dates.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday, May 20 at 10 a.m. on Carrie Underwood’s website.

Underwood will release the “Denim & Rhinestones” album on June 10. It will be Underwood’s ninth studio album. She released her first album in 2005, three years after winning the fourth season of American Idol. 


The band Gorillaz announced a tour that will stop in 22 cities from September to October. The band is recognized by The Guinness Book Of World Records as the planet’s ‘Most Successful Virtual Act’. They will perform at Vivint Arena on Monday, September 19. The band will be accompanied by hip-hop group EARTHGANG.

This tour is not like the others. Gorillaz’s “Song Machine, Season Two” album does not have a release date yet. The tour will feature songs from their seven released studio albums.

An on-sale date has not been released for the Gorillaz tour, so keep an eye on Gorillaz’s website.
