Josh Groban — the Grammy-nominated singer — will perform in Salt Lake City in summer 2022.
The news: Groban will bring his Harmony tour to Salt Lake City, performing at Vivint Arena on July 27.
- Groban will be joined by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Lucia Micarelli and Eleri Ward.
What he’s saying: “So excited for this summer!!” he wrote on Instagram.
Flashback: In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Groban sang “You Raise Me Up” a cappella for thousands of people on Facebook — from his shower.
- “It doesn’t get more corona than that,” Groban recently told the Deseret News. “The acoustics though in there — to be fair, that really was the best sounding spot in the house to sing.”
The bigger picture: Groban told the Deseret News that he tried his best to perform virtually during the pandemic so he could bring people together.
- “I love to make music because I love how it reaches people,” Groban said. “I love to be able to tell stories, and to be able to feel less alone through those stories. When you take something like COVID — which beyond the horrible physical things that are happening — I think even if you don’t get it, we’re all feeling the mental health part of just feeling that disconnect.
- “We need to connect,” he continued. “And I think there’s a re-appreciation of what art does in our lives to help us do that — especially right now. Music can play a really wonderful part in staying sane through all this.”
