From June 9th through August 19th, Guardians of the Galaxy will take over the America Gardens Theatre in Epcot. Let’s hear the backstory from Disney:
Hits from Awesome Mix Volumes 1 & 2
For a limited time, rock out at an all-new, live concert featuring music from the films. Taking place from June 9 through August 19, 2018, it’s Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live!
After saving their world from certain destruction, Peter Quill—a.k.a. Star Lord—brokered a deal with Nova Prime and the Xandarian government to bring an outreach program to his home planet. The purpose? To share Xandar’s rich heritage and culture with Earth’s people.
As luck would have it, Peter informed Xandar’s leaders that there’s already a place on Earth with a similar mission… a theme park called Epcot, where all of Earth’s cultures are celebrated. So, as part of their first outreach, Xandar has sent some of their most talented performers to showcase their music!
Taking place 5 times daily, this is your chance to catch Star-Lord and Gamora in person as a 7-piece alien band brings many of your favorite hits from Awesome Mix Volumes 1 & 2 to life. You may even catch a glimpse of Little Groot!
And while the timeless classics from the 70s and 80s play, you and your family are invited to sing along, dance… and get into the groove!
The show runs five times a day: 1:30, 2:30, 5:30, 6:45 and 8:00 p.m.
