UNIVERSAL ORLANDO’S MARDI GRAS CELEBRATION KICKS OFF THIS WEEKEND WITH LIVE PERFORMANCE BY SEAN PAUL


ORLANDO, Fla. (Jan. 30, 2018) – Universal Orlando’s 2018 Mardi Gras kicks off this weekend with a live performance by international superstar and Grammy Award-winning recording artist, Sean Paul, on Saturday, February 3.

Sean Paul rose to fame in 2002 with the success of his album “Dutty Rock,” featuring Billboard Hot 100 chart-toppers “Gimmie the Light” and “Get Busy.”  His most recent hits include “Cheap Thrills,” “Rockabye,” “No Lie” and “Body.”

Sean Paul is one of 13 nationally recognized musical acts performing live on select nights during Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras celebration, which begins Feb. 3 and continues daily through April 7 – marking the longest Mardi Gras celebration in Universal Orlando’s history.  See below for the complete concert schedule.


This year, Florida’s biggest party features a constellation-themed nightly parade, which includes six new Mardi Gras floats – including Taurus, Virgo and Serpentarius – complete with dozens of colorful dancers and stilt performers, and endless amounts of beads.  Guests can also enjoy authentic New Orleans-style cuisine at The French Quarter Courtyard and music by bands pulled straight from Bourbon Street.

Mardi Gras is included with admission to Universal Studios Florida or with an annual pass. Florida Residents can get three months free on Power, Preferred and Premier Annual Passes with a UPC code from select Coca-Cola products. For more information, visit  www.UniversalOrlando.com/MardiGras
