Cirque du Soleil‘s newest arena show, Varekai, will be appearing at the Amway Center for seven performances from September 17-21.
The show is set in a magical forest, at the summit of a volcano, and follows a young man’s adventure that is both absurd and extrodinary. The title, Varekai means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies. Directed by Dominic Champagne, this production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai.

After this 90-minute show, couples can continue to play classic board games, or take a turn on the dance floor, even playing rounds of Twister, the True or False Derby, and Dance Freeze.
Tickets are $10 per person in advance, and can be purchased at coupled.eventbrite.com. Tickets will be $13 at the door. Doors open at 6:45pm, and the show starts at 7:30pm. The Abbey is located at 100 S. Eola Dr.

We assigned a number to every entry and then generated a winning number at Random.org. The winner was Natalene Ong. Congrats!! Your prize pack is in the mail.
However, since she lived out of state and couldn’t use the tickets to Friday’s show, we drew another winner via Random.org just for the tickets and they went to Gustavo Lopez. Lopez does a mean email version of Macho Man Randy Savage, so we hope he had fun at the show.
Yup, that’s how we roll here at CitySurfing Orlando. We made sure all parts of the prize would be used, so we had two winners. Congrats to Natalene and Gustavo!!
Thanks muchly to Taking Back Sunday, Coca Cola, Warner Bros. Records and Jay for help in putting this contest together. Stay tuned for upcoming giveaways!
In 2002, Taking Back Sunday burst out into the music scene with their debut album, ” Tell All Your Friends.” A year later two members quit to do other projects, but the band carried on, replaced them, and released the 2004 album “Where You Want to Be.” Two years later, they debuted on a major label with their third album, “Louder Now,” followed by “New Again” in 2008.
Last year, Taking Back Sunday went back to the Tell All Your Friends line up, and recorded their fifth self-titled album, “Taking Back Sunday,” which comes out today, June 28, 2011. The band is currently streaming tracks from it at their Facebook page, and I think it sounds really good.
Of course with every album comes the tour, and Taking Back Sunday is on one (tour, that is) with guests Thursday and Colour Revolt. They will be hitting the House of Blues Orlando (at Downtown Disney) on July 8, 2011. Tickets are $27.50 in advance or $30.50 day of.
But why buy tickets when you can WIN them?
That’s right, I said WIN. Taking Back Sunday have generously given us a great prize pack to give away to one lucky reader of CitySurfing Orlando.
What’s in this prize pack? Glad you asked. That one lucky reader will win:
Two tickets to the July 8 Taking Back Sunday House of Blues Orlando show (you have to get yourself to the show)
A copy of the new Taking Back Sunday CD
A Taking Back Sunday t-shirt
