A Kurt Bestor Christmas: A Live Virtual Event

Live at the Eccles presents A Kurt Bestor Christmas December 12, 2020 streaming live from the Eccles Theater on Main Street in downtown Salt Lake City.

In response to the rising cases of COVID-19, Salt Lake County Mayor Jennifer Wilson and the County Health Department have closed Salt Lake County Arts & Culture venues including the Eccles Theater, for public performances effective November 23–December 31. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the health and safety of the community.

As a result, A KURT BESTOR CHRISTMAS, scheduled for December 9–12 has been moved to a live streaming performance on December 12th at 8pm MST.

You will receive a refund directly from ArtTix in 7-10 business days – there is nothing you need to do. If your purchased through someone other than ArtTix – you will need to reach out directly to inquire about a refund.

You will need to purchase a new household ticket to enjoy this intimate concert event live streamed directly to you and your family. Tickets are available now HERE.

There will be ONE performance on Saturday, December 12th at 8:00pm, regardless of which performance your original tickets were for.

In addition to Bestor’s popular holiday hits played by his all-star band and world-class orchestra, he will be joined by special guest performers, Violinist Jenny Oaks Baker and Ryan Innes, finalist on The Voice, to celebrate the peace, joy, and unity of the holiday season.
