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.

For March 2013, 80s hitmaker Taylor Dayne will play. Among her many hits are “Tell It To My Heart” and “Love Will Lead You Back.”

This month’s Velvet Sessions takes place on March 28 2013.

Tickets are $29 in advance online or $35 at the door. This not only gets you in the door, but free specialty drinks, finger foods and warm-up tunes from 6:30 pm until show time. Complimentary valet parking is also included.

For $50, 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.

After the show, a DJ plays tunes until 1am.

Here’s a video of Dayne’s hit, “With Every Beat of My Heart,” to prepare you for the show:
