Orleans takes the stage for a
4-day, 12-show performance
at Busch Gardens in Tampa.
Playing the hits repeatedly
while mixing up the rest of
the set kept both the band
tn_band3
and audience engaged, with many coming back
to see several shows. Here is the story in pictures.

… with fingers snappin’!
tn_band1
Larry’s twin daughters join the band to sing background
vocals on Still the One. Stardom came naturally to the
girls as they signed autographs at the merchandise table.

Superfan Lois Myers, who held the previous
record for Most Consecutive Shows — 9 in a
row at Epcot a few years ago — surpassed
tn_lois2
herself by attending ALL TWELVE SHOWS
at Busch Gardens … her title of “9 -show
Lois” escalating to “12-show Lois”!

From out of nowhere, newcomer Matt Moran
tied Lois for the 12-show crown! Who knew?!?!
