Each and every year, without fail, Universal Mardi Gras brings the house down with rocking, popping, pumping beats, vibrant costumes, elaborate floats and an electric energy, and each and every year Universal Studios tickets sell like hot cakes for the event. The whole world wants to see Universal Studios explode with life.
As usual, the French Quarter Courtyard will be overtaken with the essence and spirit of the Big Easy, with New Orleans bands playing soulful sounds into the crowds. Park guests dance in the streets in true New Orleans style, moved by the blues and lost in jazz melodies of authentic New Orleans musicians. To accompany the typical expressive music and dance of the Big Easy is typical Big Easy cuisine, including jambalaya, gumbo and mouth watering Cajun culinary delights.
Of course, we can’t speak of the immense Universal Studios Mardi Gras without mentioning the world famous recording artists that play out to the audience in the live concert at the Music Stage Plaza. If you haven’t been enticed to purchase your Universal tickets just yet, then the line up will have to sway you; headliners for Universal’s Mardi Gras 2012 are B.O.B, Kelly Clarkson, Big Time Rush, Boyz II Men, Cyndi Lauper, Diana Ross and many more!
