Busch Gardens Tampa fleshes out Bands Brew and BBQ musical line-up

See also

Busch Gardens Tampa is in the midst of its Bands Brew & BBQ celebration, and the park just announced the line-up for the rest of the event. Here are the musical acts you can see, in addition to coming out for the various BBQ and beer offerings, including an unlimited beer sampler:

  • Sat., 2/22 - Justin Moore
  • Sun., 2/23 - Bret Michaels
  • Sat., 3/1 - Lifehouse
  • Sun., 3/2 - ZZ Top
  • Sat., 3/8 - Daddy Yankee
  • Sun., 3/9 - Steve Miller Band

The concerts are included with your park admission, with first come, first served seating. They take place near the Gwazi roller coaster, starting at 5 p.m. The Bands Brew & BBQ area itself opens at noon so you have plenty of time to indulge in food and adult beverages before staking out a seat.

If you want to be sure you get good seats without blowing part of you day, buy a $34.99 VIP ticket that includes a meal, non-alcoholic beverage, and reserved center stage seating. If you love beer, buy a sampling wristband for $30, or two for $50 if you're an annual pass holder, and go crazy with the 100+ domestic, imported and craft beers. For BBQ, choose from among Outback Steakhouse, Smokey Bones, Kojak's House of Ribs, and Penguin Pretzel Factory, along with food from the park's chefs.

When you visit Busch Gardens Tampa, you can see the progress on the new Pantopia area and the towering Falcon's Fury ride that opens later this year. To learn more about if from the people who are creating it, check out the following articles:
