Busch Gardens adds Bridgit Mendler, more to Summer Nights concerts

Disney star Bridgit Mendler, salsa orchestra El Gran Combo and bluesy singer-songwriter ZZ Ward are coming to Busch Gardens.

The theme park added all three to its new Summer Nights concert series, which kicks off Saturday with headliners Hot Chelle Rae taking the Gwazi Stage after ZZ Ward opens the show at 7:30 p.m.

Mendler, who starred on the Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie” and went platinum with the pop single “Ready or Not,” performs July 5.

El Gran Combo, the 16-piece salsa group from Puerto Rico, plays July 12.

Summer Nights, which runs Saturdays through to Aug. 17, includes extended park hours, DJs, craft beer, special food vendors and fireworks.

The concerts are included with regular paid admission to the park.
