It's not just the barbeque that's smokin' hot. The 2013 concert lineup for the Bands, Brew & BBQ at SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay includes a zesty recipe of live performances from award-winning country and classic rock artists — Big & Rich, The Beach Boys, Josh Turner, Barenaked Ladies and more. The recipe for this popular event mixes savory barbeque, ice-cold beer, a heaping of thrill rides and a dash of seasoned performances for four succulent Saturdays and Sundays February 9 & 10, 16 & 17, 23 & 24 and March 2 & 3, 9 & 10, 16 & 17 at SeaWorld Orlando and four Sundays February 10, 17, 24 and March 3 at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
Event-goers will be able to indulge in seasoned country cooking at both parks all weekend long with a touch of pizzazz — imagine BBQ chicken to chili pepper baby back ribs to chili and spare ribs — on Saturdays and Sundays at both parks. Bands, Brew & BBQ offers an array of options to satisfy tastes big and small, sampling booths available from favorite local restaurants. Busch Gardens will feature more than 80 specialty craft beer selections both Saturday and Sunday.
For those who crave a great concert, Foreigner will kick off the event with a rockin' performance on Saturday, February 11 at SeaWorld Orlando. Lynyrd Skynyrd will bring rock to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay on Sunday, February 12.
