Thursday Evening EventFeel the Spirit!
Party with the paranormal at Feel the Spirit!, where you'll mix and mingle with dead ringers of your favorite musical stars at the Universal CityWalk® special Halloween fête. Rock 'til you drop with the likenesses of musical legends Elvis, John Lennon, and Janis Joplin, who will conjure up music so good, it'll scare you. Sample devilishly delicious All Hallows fare with your fellow boys and ghouls, and dance the night away to some seriously spooky serenades:
Listen to Frank Sinatra croon at CityWalk's Rising Star, and between sets jump and jive to the big band tunes of The Syndicats.
Rock steady to the music and lyrical imagery of the King of Reggae at Bob Marleya Tribute to Freedom.
Elvis has not left the building! Catch him in a "live" performance at the Red Coconut Club.
Push up some flower power daisies with Janis Joplin at the groove.
Revel with spirited Day of the Dead dancers in the Latin Quarter.
Be hypnotized by Pat O'Brien's musicians and the Big Easy voodoo they do so well.
And the ghosts of Woodstock past will reappear through classic music videos of Jerry Garcia, Jimi Hendrix, and others played on the video wall on the streets of Universal CityWalk®.
This is the night to break out your best graveyard groovescan you dig it?
