Beach Boys, Foreigner among acts to play Universal Orlando's 2018 Mardi Gras concert series

Udo Spreitzenbarth; Bill BernsteinIf you're planning a trip to Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, between early February and early April, you may want to bring along some Mardi Gras beads and be prepared to check out some great music. The theme park has announced the lineup of its 2018 Mardi Gras concert series, which will include performances by The Beach Boys and Foreigner.

The Beach Boys will perform on Saturday, February 10, while Foreigner will rock out on Saturday, March 17. A total of 13 headlining shows will be held at Universal Orlando's Music Plaza during the Mardi Gras celebration.

The New Orleans-inspired festivities kick off February 3 with a performance by Jamaican rapper/singer Sean Paul and run through April 7. Other artists scheduled to perform include country singer Kelsea Ballerini, Fitz & the Tantrums, reggae rockers 311, alt-rock band Bush, rapper Macklemore, Fifth Harmony, one-time American Idol winner Phillip Phillips and pop singer/songwriter Andy Grammer.

While the concerts will take place only on select Saturdays and Sundays during that time, the park will have a parade every night including street performers, colorful costumes and, of course, lots of beads.
