Pat Monahan and Train, who performed at the Olympic Medals Plaza in Salt Lake City in 2002, will headline the free show, The group charted with “Calling All Angels,” “Drops of Jupiter,” and “Meet Virginia” before taking a three year break and coming back to find even more success with “Hey, Soul Sister” and “Drive By.”
Opening will be Jakob Dylan (yes, Bob’s son) and The Wallflowers who first had mainstream success with their album Bringing Down the Horse and the singles “6th Avenue Heartache” and “One Headlight” in 1996.
There will also be food vendors and a beer garden for the show.
