I would definitely go see Weird Al.
Also, does anyone know where the concerts will be this year; Royal Palace or Festhaus Park?

With seating additions being made to the Royal Palace theater, I'd say there. No evidence to back that up though.

Ramp jam is cool and all, but I honestly think they should hold (more) concerts that will appeal to male teens...

I would still love to see a band ala Lacuna Coil in the gardens... Might never happen but I'd love it.


Also some electronic music Dj's and a laser-light show... I'd love to see that too.

RE: Concerts 2012

Its offical the concerts will be at RPT again. I like RPT as a venue better, but I dont like waiting in line most of the day just to get in.

Glory at the Gardens returns this summer to Busch Gardens with a sensational lineup of chart-topping contemporary Christian and Gospel artists. Glory at the Gardens combines the best Christian-inspired performances with the park’s family-friendly atmosphere for a perfect mix of music and adventure. Performances will take place at Busch Gardens’ Royal Palace Theatre May 6, 20, June 10 and 24. As always, all concerts are free for park guests.

RE: Concerts 2012

RPT is actually built for concerts and major shows, whereas FHP is just an open field. If you have the choice to use a good/decent amphitheater over a open field, they obviously show use the amphitheater. It at least offers seating, which can be a major issue for some people, especially since some people need seats and they won't allow you to bring your own in FHP for the fact so many people complained about them.

Also, they have a technical booth, with spotlights, full stage, an actual backstage and everything. It just is much more easier for the park and guests.

RE: Concerts 2012

They maybe terrible seating, for Abbeystone, I agree new seating is a must. Those seats should only be used for outdoor theaters (RPT) or stadiums for sports or the such. Those seats after all, are basically designed for the outdoors. I think the wooden bench seating they use in the first row or two is what really should be there, they could probably fit more people in there.

This statement above is null since you have no experience in this realm...
.........................but I do agree with you on the fact that some need seats due to obvious reasons...

What do you mean I have no experience in this realm? I do have experience in technical theater. I have worked on some very interesting technical theater projects and it would be easier to use an already set up stage with lights and sound, technical booth, and spotlights rather than constantly put up and take down a temporary stage and lighting.

RE: Concerts 2012

Please don't say I have no idea. Am curious have you gone on the stage and performed and has it made to perform terribly? I have worked with a terrible stage, the only thing terrible would be it's look. I am going to take a wild guess and say directly underneath the stage is solid concrete so it won't break, so really for someone to get on a stage, sing and dance, and perform well, the stage would have little effect in changing that.

Plus, I am sure it is cheaper to repair the stage than to continuously take down and put up a new one.
