Every month, except November and December, the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando hosts a live concert called Velvet Sessions. It’s a 21 and over event that features classic rock and pop artists performing in an intimate club-like atmosphere.
This month, Extreme will be performing on Thursday, September 21, 2017.
Extreme was one of the most popular rock acts in the late 1980s and 90s. They broke onto the scene with their single “Kid Ego,” but it was their album 1990 album Pornograffitti that put them on the map. That album had several hits, including “Decadence Dance,” “Hole Hearted,” and my personal favorite, “Get the Funk Out.”
It’s “More than Words” that everybody remembers them best for, however, even though it’s very different from the funk-rock sound of the rest of the album. The single was the band’s first number one, and even got them nominated for a Grammy.
The last time they played Orlando was 2015 for the 25th anniversary of Pornograffitti‘s release, and it was an amazing high-energy show to a packed audience.
Trust me – this is a show you won’t want to miss!
Tickets for Velvet Sessions are $35 in advance, and more at the door. This not only gets you in the door, but free specialty drinks, finger foods and warm-up tunes from 6pm until show time. Complimentary valet parking is also included.
For $65 you can upgrade to VIP, which in addition to the above perks, gives you access to a special viewing area with a private bar serving those free specialty drinks all night.
