|Starship featuring Mickey Thomas, 2013|
It's a nice break from the park crowds or rain (if you sit in the first few sections) and fun for the whole family. There really isn't a bad seat in the theater as the performers have a long runway/stage they perform on that you can see from almost every seat. I say almost because there are a few trees planted in the viewing area that can sometimes obstruct a clear view.
Finding a seat for this series is a bit easier than for the Flower Power Concert Series who have fans lining up an hour ahead of time to see their favorite performers. Fun too is to grab a table at The Liberty Tavern and dine while listening to some great music.
The shows are at 5:30, 6:45 and 8 p.m. (except July 4th, see below) in the open-air America Gardens Theater in the World Showcase. Sounds Like Summer concerts are included with Epcot admission.
The schedule (entertainment subject to change without notice):
June 9 to 15: Stayin’ Alive ~ A Tribute to the Bee Gees
June 16 to 22: Hotel California ~ A Salute to the Eagles
June 23 to 29: Mike DelGuidice & Big Shot ~ The Ultimate Billy Joel Tribute Show
June 30 to July 6: Slippery When Wet ~ The Ultimate Bon Jovi Tribute
July 7 to 13: SouthBound and Company ~ A Tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd
July 14 to 20: The Police Experience ~ A Tribute to The Police
July 21 to 27: 2U ~ A Tribute to U2
Show times are 5:30, 6:45 and 8:00 p.m. – except on July 4 when show times are 5:15, 6:30, 7:45 and 9 p.m.
