Start rehearsing, karaoke kings and queens – Rising Star is making a brief return! After being closed for the better part of 2020, Universal is welcoming guests back to the stage of its signature karaoke club this weekend only. This will be the first Universal CityWalk Orlando club to reopen since its closure on March 17.
Per a Facebook post from Rising Star, the venue will open its doors this Friday, October 30 at 5:00 pm, with shows running from 6:30 through 11:30 pm. Saturday will have the same operating schedule. On Sunday, doors will open at 5:00 pm with shows between 5:30 and 10:30 pm. Tables will be seated at 40% capacity with plenty of room to “rock safely” – plus, the changing and thorough sanitation of microphones between performances has been promised, as well.
For the time being, there will not be a live band to accompany those taking the stage; however, computer karaoke will be available with thousands of songs in the Rising Star repertoire, along with a host to keep the tunes coming.
The usual $7 cover charge has been nixed for now, which means CityWalk guests can sing for free. All ages are welcome this weekend, as the age minimum has been temporarily lifted (normally, it’s 21 and above). Guests are encouraged to call 407-224-2189 to reserve a table.
