The stars of the Nick Jr. show “Yo Gabba Gabba” will remain on the road well into next year as part of their third live tour.
“Yo Gabba Gabba Live!: Get the Sillies Out” got things started in Los Angeles last weekend, and will undertake a three-night residency in New York on November 30-December 2 at the Theater at Madison Square Garden. The extensive tour is then scheduled to run through a stand in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on March 23-24. Other cities the tour will visit include Pittsburgh, Detroit, St. Louis, Boston, Charlotte, Atlanta, Memphis, San Diego, Houston and Dallas.
“Winner of Billboard’s Creative Content Award, Yo Gabba Gabba Live! has performed in front of countless fans across the U.S. And Canada over the past three years, and the new show “Get the Sillies Out! Is sure to be one you won’t want to miss,” reads a statement on the official website of the live tour. “We’ve taken the fan favorites from the past two tours and combined them with some all-new music and other surprises that we can’t tell you about… yet!”
The site also notes that the show will feature “the one and only DJ Lance Rock, plus Muno, Foofa, Brobee, Toodee, and Plex, and of course, hip hop legend Biz Markie.”
