The Summer Concert Series is returning to Universal Studios this June with more concerts and top-name musical talent than last year. Starting June 12 and running every Saturday night through July 17, guests can top off their day in the park with a concert by a multi-platinum selling artist. There’s even a double-header scheduled for July 3.
