Universal Studios Florida Secures First Act for Summer Concerts


When visiting Universal Orlando Resort, the Music Plaza inside Universal Studios Florida has become the late night place to be as the park has developed a history of bringing in big name acts to participate in its concerts series. The 2013 Summer Series starts June 1st and while they have yet to announce the whole list of acts, Universal Orlando Resort did announce that Big Time Rush will play Saturday June 8 on the big stage. The full line-up will be announced at a later date.

Before the concert, Universal Studios Florida guests will have a chance to interact with members of Big Time Rush in a live Q&A session.

Universal Orlando Resort and Nickelodeon are giving fans a chance to win a trip to the concert event through a sweepstakes starting April 1. One lucky fan will win a trip to meet Big Time Rush, watch them perform a live concert and enjoy Universal Orlando’s two amazing theme parks. Plus, 50 additional winners will win the new Big Time Rush album. Register for a chance to win.

With millions of fans worldwide, Nickelodeon and Columbia Recording artists Big Time Rush have conquered television as the stars of the global hit series, Big Time Rush, as well as the airwaves with more than four million downloads sold to date. They won the “Fan Armies” competition at the 2013 Kids’ Choice Awards and are currently finishing their third full-length album which will be released and supported with a national tour in early summer 2013. The release will feature brand new music that will debut on the upcoming season of the TV series Big Time Rush set to premiere this spring. The launch of the hit series on Nickelodeon drew 6.8 million viewers, making it the most watched live-action series premiere in the network’s history. The group’s top hits include “Boyfriend,” Windows Down,” “Til I Forget About You” and “Worldwide.”

On Saturday nights from June 1 to July 6, park guests can rock out to a live performance by a multi-platinum artist at the Music Plaza, a venue illuminated by the colorful LED lights of Universal Studios’ most rockin’ coaster, Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit. And soon guests can join the intergalactic battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons on TRANSFORMERS: The Ride-3D, opening summer 2013.

Access to Summer Concert Series performances is included with admission to Universal Studios Florida. More information on this year’s event.
