Every year, one of the biggest events in Orlando is the Mardi Gras celebration at Universal Orlando, and part of that is due to the concerts that take place.
This week, the theme park revealed the concert line-up for its 2012 festivities. They take place every Saturday, with the occcasional Friday and Sunday, and start out with a huge Mardi Gras parade followed by a concert from a big name headliner.
Here is the just released list of shows:
- Feb. 11 – The B-52’s
- Feb. 18 – Kelly Clarkson
- Feb. 19 – Boyz II Men
- Feb. 25 – Diana Ross
- March 3 – Goo Goo Dolls
- March 10 – Big Time Rush
- March 16 – J Cole
- March 17 – Sugar Ray
- March 23 – Hot Chelle Rae
- March 24 – B.o.B.
- March 30 – Plain White T’s
- March 31 – Prince Royce
- April 7 – Cyndi Lauper
- April 14 – KC & The Sunshine Band
I am disappointed that there aren’t any classic rock or country acts this year. There are plenty of contemporary acts this year, so I expect to see a younger crowd at most of the shows.
Admission is included in regular park admission for the day, and there is also an “After 5” discounted pass for those who just want to do Mardi Gras (though if you want to do any of the rides, you really do get a better deal paying for the whole day and doing the rides during the day and the Mardi Gras celebrations at night).
Following each night’s Mardi Gras festivities, you can use your park admission as a complimentary CityWalk Party Pass to access the clubs.
So you do you see any headliners that you’re excited about on this list? Let us know in comments.
