Trade 'Idol Live' for Mannheim

You've probably heard by now that the Idol Mania Live tour, which was to kick off in Sarasota this weekend, has been postponed. We hope to give you details of new tour dates in the new year.

In the meantime, though it's not American Idol, you can partake in the holiday cheer at Universal Orlando Resort with the electric Grammy Award-winning Christmas music of Mannheim Steamroller. The group recently performed at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, and will be performing two shows at Universal Studios at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. this Saturday (Dec. 6). During the event, Mannheim Steamroller will perform favorite hits and music from their new album Christmasville.

After Saturday, the Christmas celebrations continue at Universal through New Year's Day with performances of "Grinchmas," a spin on "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," and Macy's Holiday Parade.

Remember, Florida residents can get special deals on tickets this holiday season. For more information on discounts and the holiday events at Universal, visit www.universalorlando.com/holidays.
