Drake, Trey Songz, the Go-Go's coming to Universal Orlando


The world can debate whether Universal Orlando is better than Disney World, or whether either of them are better than Busch Gardens. But this much, we know for sure: Universal's No. 1 when it comes to booking music.

The theme park on Tuesday announced the lineup for its Summer Concert Series, and it's loaded wit hip-hop superstars: Drake, above, as well as Trey Songz and Nelly. There are three solid pop and rock acts on the bill, too, including '80s throwbacks the Go-Go's, Boys Like Girls and (squee!) Third Eye Blind. The concerts are free with park admission.

And no, we're not overstating things when we say Universal's concert series is the best. You know who Disney has lined up this summer? A whole slew of tribute bands, from "Frontiers," a tribute to Journey; to "2U," a tribute to U2; and "Little Queen," which is actually a tribute to Heart, and somehow not a Queen version of Mini Kiss. Although THAT, we would pay to see.
