The first visit to Salt Lake City took place in October 1981 with Blackfoot at the Salt Palace during the High 'n' Dry tour.
They returned to that venue in August 1983 on the Pyromania tour for their first headline show in SLC.
It was played three times in December 1987 (x1) and October 1988 (x2) for In the Round shows on the Hysteria tour.
A fourth In the Round show followed on the Adrenalize tour in September 1992 at Delta Center.
After a seven year gap they played at the Jon M. Huntsman Center in December 1999 headlining a radio sponsored show with Train, Shaggy and Jessica Simpson opening.
A second Euphoria tour show took place in September 2000 at the Utah State Fair followed by the last indoor show at The E Center in December 2002 on the X/Ten tour.
A run of shows at USANA Amphitheatre began in August 2006 on the YEAH! tour.
Further visits took place in 2007, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016 and again in 2017.
The 2009 show is where much of the 2011live album was recorded.

The Vivint Smart Home Arena was used before that show for full production rehearsals when it was known as the EnergySolutions Arena. It was first played in 1992 when it was called Delta Center.
