Sheila E, Glass Tiger, Billy Ocean coming to Epcot this fall

Disney has updated its list of concert artists for this fall's Eat to the Beat series, part of its annual Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, and it's full of beloved acts from the '80s.

Among the artists performing: Tiffany, Glass Tiger, Sheila E, Jeffrey Osbourne, Air Supply, 30 Special, Billy Ocean, the Hooters and Starship.

The annual food and wine fest runs from Aug. 30 to Nov. 12. Admission to the daily concerts is free (though guests still need a pass or daily ticket to enter the park).

BTW, this will be the first appearance by Glass Tiger at Epcot. The band was HUGE in Canada in the '80s and beyond, but did have crossover hits with tunes such as Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone) and Someday. Likewise, it's Sheila E's first show in Orlando. The former Prince protege and drumming star hit it big with The Glamorous Life in 1984.

Both Sheila E and Starship will also perform full sets on the 2019 voyage of The 80s Cruise, leaving Fort Lauderdale on March 2, 2019. For more information, go to www.the80scruise.com.
