Country sensation Chris Young and rock group The All-American Rejects, take the stage this weekend at Busch Gardens® Tampa Bay’s second annual Food & Wine Festival.
The festival takes place on Saturdays and Sundays now through April 24. Concerts are at 6 p.m. and are included with any Pass, Fun Card or daily admission.
Chris Young – Saturday, April 9 at 6 p.m., Gwazi Park
At the age of 30, Chris Young has accomplished more than some artists do in a lifetime. Already a Grammy-nominated vocalist, he’s also a dynamic live performer who plays a powerhouse show packed with hits, including chart toppers “Gettin’ You Home,” “Voices,” “Tomorrow,” and “Who I Am With You.” With four albums to his credit, Young has amassed six #1 singles, seven Gold/Platinum certifications and performed for audiences ranging from Good Morning America to Australia and Dublin to The Late Show with David Letterman. The RCA Records artist is an international ambassador for his genre, a talented songwriter, and a southern gentleman who is frequently declared one of country music’s sexiest men by People and Country Weekly magazines. With the release of his most recent record, “I’m Comin’ Over,” from his highly anticipated fifth studio album, Young is just as well known for his classic baritone as he is for melt-your-heart ballads and is winning audiences across the globe.
The All-American Rejects – Sunday, April 10 at 6 p.m., Gwazi Park
Following their first international hit, “Gives You Hell,” The All-American Rejects have played to ecstatic audiences across the globe. “Gives You Hell,” also spent four weeks at No. 1 at Top 40 radio, became the No. 1 most-played song of 2009 and went on to sell four million copies in the U.S. alone. In 2003, the band released a self-titled platinum debut in 2003 and the double platinum “Move Along” in 2005.
In addition to chart-topping concerts, this year Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has added more ways to savor the festival including:
