Universal Studios Orlando will be celebrating Mardi Gras not once, but twice this Valentine’s Day weekend! The annual event will be included with park admission and with your Discount Universal Tickets on both Saturday and Sunday, with live concerts and the parade being shown both nights.
On Saturday, February 13th, Heart will be performing on the Music Plaza Stage at 8:30 PM at Universal Studios. Over their illustrious career, Nancy and Ann Wilson, otherwise known as Heart; has always made urgent, immediate and compelling music including songs “Barracuda”, “What About Love”, “Never”, “Alone” and “All I Want To Do Is Make Love To You”. Simply put, following their creative impulses has made Heart one of the most innovative and enduring musical partnerships of our time. It’s a creative chemistry that has, to date, yielded sales of well over thirty million albums, with over twenty Top 40 hits and live shows that sell out stadiums whenever and wherever Heart performs.
On Sunday, February 14th, Kool & The Gang will be performing on the Music Plaza Stage at 8:30 PM at Universal Studios. Formed as a jazz ensemble in the mid-’60s, Kool & the Gang became one of the most inspired and influential funk units during the ’70s, and one of the most popular R&B groups of the ’80s after their breakout hit “Celebration” in 1979. Just as funky as James Brown or Parliament (and sampled almost as frequently), Kool & the Gang relied on their jazz backgrounds and long friendship to form a tightly knit group with the interplay and improvisation of a jazz outfit, plus the energy and spark of a band with equal ties to soul, R&B, and funk.
