The Union Salt Lake City 2018 summer preview: MGMT, Father John Misty, James Bay and more

The Union--one of Salt Lake City’s premier music venues--has teamed up with AEG Presents Rocky Mountains to bring SLC concertgoers some of music’s biggest names this summer. There’s a little something for everyone on The Union’s bill this year from country to electronic, hip-hop, rock, pop and comedy.

The summer season kicks off on May 17 with country singer-songwriter Billy Currington followed by electro-pop duo MGMT on May 22. Jack Antonoff’s indie-pop project Bleachers will close out the first month of summer at The Union on May 29. June boasts the hilarious musical comedy of the Los Angeles-based duo Ninja Sex Party on June 20 as well as the hip-hop/reggae fusion of Southern California's Dirty Heads on June 21. 

Ahead of his performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on August 15, singer-songwriter Father John Misty will stop into The Union on Aug. 13. September will see indie rock darlings The Head and the Heart followed in October by U.K. singer-songwriter and guitarist James Bay.
