Universal Unveils 2008 Mardi Gras Concerts

It’s not quite New Orleans, but then I don’t have to flash anything but a smile for a ten cent string of plastic beads, either. However what I really enjoy about Universal Orlando’s annual Mardi Gras event are the weekly concerts that are included with your admission or annual park pass.

It seems the theme park has done away with their separate Mardi Gras subsection on the website, but has finally posted the concert line-up for the 2008 Mardi Gras celebrations. And it’s actually pretty good, with a little something for everyone.

Rock is represented by Bret Michaels of Poison (let’s not mention that horrendous “reality” show “Rock of Love” m’kay??), Heart, Go-Go’s and Third Eye Blind. Country fans get to enjoy Sara Evans and Gretchen Wilson, while old school music fans have Smokey Robinson, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons and Kool & The Gang. So far, only one rap act has been booked, LL Cool J, but there are still two dates to fill.

For those too lazy to click over to Universal’s site, here’s the calendar as it stands, with all shows falling on a Saturday night:

February 2 – Bret Michaels of Poison
February 9 – Go-Go’s
February 16 – Sara Evans
February 23 – Third Eye Blind
March 1 – Gretchen Wilson
March 8 – Smokey Robinson
March 15 – Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons
March 22 – Kool & The Gang
March 29 – Heart
April 5 – [to be announced]
April 12 – LL Cool J
