Velour Live Music Gallery (often just Velour) is a music venue, on University Avenue, in Provo, Utah. Velour is owned by Corey Fox. It acts as an all-ages music venue catering to an eclectic mix of genres. It is also a smoking and alcohol free environment.[1]

Neon Trees (Mercury) credit Velour as their home venue which helped launch their career.[2][3][4] Other artists who similarly hold this same sentiment include major label artists Imagine Dragons (Interscope), Fictionist (Atlantic),[5] Isaac Russell (Columbia),[6] and notable folk singer Joshua James.[7] Other Utah artists have hailed the work of Corey Fox and the value of Velour Live Music Gallery including internet sensation Lindsey Stirling and The Used (Hopeless).[8] Imagine Dragons and Neon Trees are both past winners of the Velour Battle of the Bands.

SPIN has also dubbed Velour Live Music Gallery one of the Best Kept Secrets in Utah. Similarly, the venue was listed on the "Best of Utah" in 2007. BYUtv indie music show AUDIO-FILES has had multiple episodes filmed at Velour including episodes featuring Imagine Dragons, Joshua James, Damien Jurado, and others.

Artists, including Imagine Dragons, Neon Trees, Sara Bareilles, Matt Nathanson, Ryan Bingham & The Dead Horses, Local Natives, and many more have played this small taste-making venue.
