If you need more Empire in your life, don’t fret - two stars from the hit show will be in Orlando to fill all your fandom needs.

Empire actors Bryshere Gray and Serayah McNeill, also known as Hakeem Lyon and Tiana Brown, will be hosting a Empire All Black Party at Venue 578 this Saturday. The party requires an all-black dress code. 

Fox's Empire chronicles the family power struggle for control over Empire Entertainment, a fictional media corporation founded by hip-hop mogul and ALS patient Lucious, played by Terrence Howard. 

You may have noticed McNeil in Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood video “Dilemma.” 

The 18+ party starts at 10:00 p.m. General admission tickets are selling for $25 while VIP, which includes a private bar, elevated viewing, and express entry, is $45.

Empire returns March 30 on Fox.
