#4 Foo Fighters 
August 8th

USANA Amphitheater in Salt Lake City, UT

This year has been a tough one for the band, suddenly losing one of it's founding member, drummer Taylor Hawkinss. "As we say goodbye to the most difficult and tragic year that our band has ever known, we are reminded of how thankful we are for the people that we love and cherish most, and for the loved ones who are no longer with us," the December statement said. "Foo Fighters were formed 27 years ago to represent the healing power of music and a continuation of life. And for the past 27 years, our fans have built a worldwide community, a devoted support system that has helped us all get through the darkest of times together. A place to share our joy and our pain, our hopes and fears, and to join in a chorus of life together through music." The message continued, "without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were–and without Taylor, we know that we're going to be a different band going forward, we also know that you, the fans, meant as much to Taylor as he meant to you. And we know that when we see you again–and we will soon–he'll be there in spirit with all of us every night." Get your tickets here: Usana
