See our Universal Studios Florida Showtimes page for specific times. Note that showtimes may not be released until very close to the show date.
The concerts are standing-room only and first-come/first-served; crowds can be enormous, and folks sometimes start lining up shortly after park opening for the hottest acts. There is no extra-cost VIP area available, but there is an ADA accessible viewing section near the TWISTER restrooms. Large video screens broadcast the stage to those standing in the far back, so consider watching from the New York Battery Park area if you aren't an uber-fan of the artist.
There is no additional charge for Mardi Gras Concerts. They are included with park admission.
