Performers Announced for 2014 Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando

| January 15, 2014 | Reply

February is approaching quickly and at Universal Orlando that means Mardi Gras festivities are about to begin! On select nights starting February 8 through May 31, the party starts and guests are treated to authentic Cajun food in the French Quarter Courtyard, all the beads you can catch during the Mardi Gras Parade and a special concert featuring some of music’s biggest names on the Universal Music Plaza Stage to end out the night. It was previously announced that The Wanted and Robin Thicke would be taking the stage, but now Universal unveiled the “full” list of acts performing through their official Facebook page. As of this point in time, there are still six nights that are listed without a performer meaning this can’t truly be the “full” list.

February 8 Daughtry
February 15 Barenaked Ladies
February 16 Thomas Rhett
February 22 Robin Thicke
March 1 Collective Soul
March 8 Prince Royce
March 14 Cody Simpson

Unlike Halloween Horror Nights, Universal Studios Mardi Gras Grand Celebration does not require an extra ticket. Although Mardi Gras may not be as intense as the real thing in New Orleans, it is still an event that is catered more towards adults, but kids will have a ton of fun as well and even get a special parade viewing area next to Terminator 2: 3D.  Get ready for beads, bands and good times!
