Universal Orlando’s 2016 Mardi Gras continues this weekend with two electrifying musical acts: The Fray on Saturday, March 12, and Adam Lambert on Sunday, March 13.
Since forming in 2002, The Fray has earned four GRAMMY nominations and sold more than 4 million albums and 20 million singles worldwide. The band is best known for their hit singles “You Found Me,” “How to Save a Life” and “Over My Head (Cable Car).” In 2012, The Fray released their third album, Scars & Stories, that charted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200.
Adam Lambert’s vocal career began in 2009 with the release of his debut album, For Your Entertainment, which included the GRAMMY-nominated single, “Whataya Want from Me.” In 2015, he released his third album, The Original High, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200. Alongside his solo career, Lambert has collaborated with rock band Queen as lead vocalist since 2011, culminating in a successful world-wide tour from 2014 to 2016.
