Mahonies preping for Hard Rock

Young Money / Cash Money recording artist Austin Mahone comes to Orlando in support of “MTV’s Artist to Watch” on Wednesday Feb. 26. With him he will be bringing Becky G, Midnight, and W3 the Future.

Mahone began his career on YouTube, covering songs like Justin Bieber’s “Mistletoe” — which currently has more than 14 million views — before finding his way into the music industry. Mahone is not new to touring, and has toured with the likes of Taylor Swift, Flo Rida and Bieber himself. In his early career he has sold out New York’s famed Best Buy Theater within minutes.

Mahone’s list of hits: “Say Something,” “What About Love” and “11:11” helped the young artist climb Billboard charts and land television appearances on MTV, E! News, Live! With Kelly & Michael, Big Time Rush, and AwesomenessTV.

Just like Miley Cyrus has the “Smilers,” Justin Bieber has the “Beliebers,” and Demi Lovato has the “Lovatics” — Mahone has the “Mahonies.”

A limited amount of tickets are available online at for  $38.95, and are selling out fast. VIP Balcony tables are already sold out.

The Hard Rock Live is located inside Universal City Walk. Doors Open at 6 p.m.
