WHAT:                        Universal Orlando Resort’s 2012 Summer Concert Series kicks off this Saturday with the cast of Nickelodeon’s hit TV series, “Victorious.” The performance marks the beginning of Orlando’s hottest summer music event, featuring six nights of performances by some of the biggest names in music.

Guests at Universal Studios Florida will be able to join entire cast of “Victorious” for exciting experiences throughout the day.

To participate in the Q&A sessions and watch a show episode of “Victorious,” guests should arrive to Universal Studios Florida by 2 p.m. 

Currently in its third season, “Victorious” follows teenager Tori Vega as she navigates life at Hollywood Arts, a prestigious performing arts high school.  The show, a co-production with Sony Music, features original songs performed by Victoria Justice and the show’s ensemble cast.  The newest collection of songs from the show, “Victorious 2.0: More Music from the Hit TV Show,” debuts on June 5 and features the brand-new single, “Make It In America.” The show’s first soundtrack, “Victorious: Music from the Hit TV Show,” debuted at the no. 5 spot on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and features the show’s theme song “Make It Shine,” as well as the hit singles "Beggin' On Your Knees," "Freak the Freak Out" and "Best Friend's Brother."

Universal Orlando’s Summer Concert Series is included in admission to Universal Studios Florida and gives guests the opportunity to add a major concert to a day of theme park thrills.  This year’s star- lineup features top-name talent that will appeal to fans of every music genre – including ZZ Top, Josh Turner and Lupe Fiasco.
