Tuacahn amphitheatre

It’s a glorious time of year in Southern Utah when the weather is perfect, the flowers are in bloom and the spring concert series is in full swing at Tuacahn.

Whether you’re looking for comedy, classic rock or anything in between, Scott Anderson, artistic director for Tuacahn says, this “stellar group of concerts” has you covered.

“We’re just so fortunate to be open,” Anderson says, noting the extensive measures Tuacahn continues to take to ensure the health and safety of everyone who attends.

Now let’s just hope Starship is talking about 2021 when they sing, “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now.”

Free Fallin’ A Tom Petty Concert Experience— 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 20

In a Tuacahn concert season lineup that includes hits from Elton John, comedy from Bill Engvall and death defying rides from the Professional Bull Riders, you won’t want to miss Free Fallin’ A Tribute to Tom Petty taking place Saturday, March 20.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers were one of the biggest chart toppers in rock and roll history, so it’s no wonder tribute group Free Fallin’ has been so successful. People love to hear the music that has played such a part in their lives.

Touring the country for more than 12 years, entertaining thousands at festivals, fairs and concerts, Free Fallin’ A Tom Petty Concert Experience features all the best of Tom Petty’s music, as well as the instruments and costumes to recreate a truly authentic Tom Petty experience.

Tickets start at just $19. Log onto www.tuacahn.org for details.

Colbie Caillat — 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 26

Get ready to embrace that “Bubbly” springtime feeling when two-time Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat takes the Tuacahn stage Friday, March 26.

Although her fresh, light-hearted breakout hit “Bubbly” is still among the best-selling digital tracks in history, Caillat isn’t shying away from more substantial topics in songs like her platinum-single, “Try” that touches on the hardships women in the music industry face.

With her wide musical repertoire, it’s easy to see why she’s played to sold-out venues around the world and shared the stage with artists from John Mayer to Sheryl Crow.

Check out what she’s singing about now at Tuacahn with tickets starting at just $45. For more information go to www.tuacahn.org

Starship Featuring Mickey Thomas — 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 27

If you listened to the radio in the ‘80s and ‘90s, you likely heard the soulful and compelling vocals of Mickey Thomas. Now you can hear him and the hits from Starship Featuring Mickey Thomas on stage at Tuacahn, Saturday March 27.

Everything from “We Built This City” to “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” will be ringing through the canyon as fans of this classic rock group revel in the nostalgia of the night.
