As always I’m a bit late with some event news, but better late than never right! I wanted to let you know about this years Universal Studios summer concert series bands and shows for 2012.
For those who don’t know what it is, Universal has top bands that play each Saturday night during the peak summer months. You do NOT need a special ticket to see them, it’s included with your normal theme park ticket.
However the bands always play in the Music Plaza stage, which is located in the Universal Orlando park, the “old” park. So if you buy tickets to get into that park your covered.
But if you buy a ticket to Islands of Adventure, the other park, you will need to purchase a ticket to the other park to see the show. So, if you plan on seeing a band make sure you get a ticket to the Universal Orlando theme park.
Each night the selected bands play at 8:00 PM. After that Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular show starts up at 9:30pm. That’s cool to see if you have not watched it before.
As of right now they still don’t have the full lineup, but they do have the first 5 scheduled. So here is a list of the dates, times and bands of this years Universal Studios summer concert series!
Saturday, June 9 at 8pm | At the Music Plaza stage
Saturday, June 16 at 8pm | At the Music Plaza stage
ZZ TOP & 3 DOORS DOWN
Saturday, June 23 at 8pm | At the Music Plaza stage
Saturday, June 30 at 8pm | At the Music Plaza stage
Saturday, July 7 at 8pm | At the Music Plaza stage
That’s the lineup they have so far. When they post the other two I will list them here. You can buy a special discount ticket if you want to come just to see the concert on a particular night.
If you buy that you cannot get into the park until just before the concert starts. Go to Universal Studios website for details on how to purchase that ticket.
So if your a fan of any of the above bands, check out Universal Studios summer concert series that day and have fun riding the rides before enjoying the concert that night!
