Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Live! will return to performing daily at America Gardens Theater at the back of Epcot's World Showcase this summer from June 14 through August 18. The show features Star-Lord and Gamora in person as a 7-piece alien band plays many recognizable tunes from Awesome Mix Volumes 1 & 2. Here's the official synopsis of the show:

After saving their world from certain destruction, Peter Quill—a.k.a. Star Lord—brokered a deal with Nova Prime and the Xandarian government to bring an outreach program to his home planet. The purpose? To share Xandar’s rich heritage and culture with Earth’s people. As luck would have it, Peter informed Xandar’s leaders that there’s already a place on Earth with a similar mission… a theme park called Epcot, where all of Earth’s cultures are celebrated. So, as part of their first outreach, Xandar has sent some of their most talented performers to showcase their music!
