The Wanted to play one their last shows this weekend at Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras!


If you’ve been trying to see the hit band, The Wanted in concert, this Saturday at Universal Orlando is one of your last chances to see them before they call it quits. The Wanted has decided to “take a break” after the current tour, and have not announced a date as to when they may get back together…if at all. While it’s sad for fans, this weekend’s concert at Universal Orlando is one of only a handful left.



The Wanted will end their tour on May 17th, but Saturday May 10th fans can get a huge concert to go along with an even bigger parade as Mardi Gras continues the celebration! The concert is included in theme park admission, and will happen immediately after the Mardi Gras Parade.

The parade kicks off this weekend at 8:15p.m. and winds it’s way all the way through the streets of Universal Studios Florida. Beads, all new floats and good times will also be on tap as Mardi Gras rages on for another few weeks.

Here’s the remaining schedule:
