Every year Universal presents its Summer Concert Series to the city of Orlando in June and July.

To go to these shows, either purchase a ticket to the park (regular day admission includes the concert) or buy a ticket for the show that cost $69.99 which allows admission to Universal Studios after 7:00pm; versus getting a 1-day, 1-park pass that cost $92.00. Remember, an annual Power Pass “blackouts” all of July therefore a day pass would be needed in order to attend.

Junior Amy Lundstrom said, “I feel like it would be an enjoyable experience to scream with other ‘fangirls,’ and it’s worth the price.”

The Universal Music Plaza stage for the summer series is located in front of Universal’s Rip Ride Rocket. To be up close at the concert get there super early, around 3-6 hours early sometimes even earlier (depending on the popularity of the band) or push up to the front. There is no special VIP sitting area and everyone stands in the field in front of the stage to watch.

During the shows all of the regular rides and activities that usually take place at Universal will still be going on. In case someone grows bored of the show they will be able to ride the Mummy or shoot some aliens at Men in Black.

The past lineup for 2013 included top hits NE-YO, Big Time Rush, Gavin DeGraw, Earth, Wind & Fire, Adam Lambert, and Kip Moore.

Junior Alex Lowie said, “I’ve never been, but it seems interesting to go to.”

Currently, Universal hasn’t released the lineup for 2014’s Summer Concert Series. To know who will be on the big stage next year, always keep checking back at their website. Who knows? It could be the next biggest thing. Don’t miss out and plan ahead to attend Universal’s Summer Concert Series.
