ORLANDO, Fla. — Two longtime performance acts at Epcot are going away.
- British Revolution, Matsuriza, performed at world pavilions inside Epcot
- All Disney World parks close Sunday through the end of the month
British Revolution, the musical group at the UK pavilion, and Matsuriza, the drummers at the Japan pavilion, will have their last shows on March 15, according to post last made on their social media pages.
"British Revolution and its members would like to thank Walt Disney World and all the beautiful people of the UK pavilion for the opportunity of a lifetime," the group wrote on its Facebook page. "What a joy it has been to perform over 11,000 shows to gracious audience from around the globe."
Matsuriza also penned a message to fans on its Instagram page.
"We're deeply saddened to announce that tomorrow, Sunday 3/15/20 will be our last day performing at Epcot indefinitely," Matsuriza wrote on its Instagram page. "We had a fantastic 25 year run on the pagoda stage working with some of the best managers and tech team on property. Performing at the Japan pavilion has been an honor, representing our heritage and culture to millions of guests from all over the world."
