Yo Gabba Gabba Live Minneapolis – Preview & Giveaway

On September 15th, SuperDad, Mason, and I will be heading to the Minneapolis State Theatre to see Yo Gabba Gabba LIVE! We’re very excited about this since we LOVE Yo Gabba Gabba and we think you guys should be excited too! The theme this year is “It’s Time to Dance!” and Mason loooooooooooooves to shake his little booty!

Here’s info from their May press release to catch you up to speed –

“On the heels of receiving two Daytime Emmy nominations, a season 4 pick up from Nickelodeon and phenomenal ticket sales for their upcoming live tour in Australia, Yo Gabba Gabba! announced they will rock the preschool and young adult set in over 50 cities across North America in 2011 when today’s hottest live show returns this fall. Enthusiastic fans of all ages have the opportunity to see the characters come to life on stage for a live show experience like no other.  Kia Motors America will reprise their role as presenting sponsor of the tour.  The tour will kick off in Minneapolis at the State Theatre on Thursday, September 15 and will wrap on Sunday, December 11 in Fort Lauderdale at the Broward Center.[….]

YO GABBA GABBA! LIVE!: It’s Time to Dance! Presented by Kia Motors promises to be a memorable experience, featuring a mix of classic Yo Gabba Gabba! favorites, as well as new songs and new performances. The state-of-the-art, high-energy production features DJ Lance Rock, Brobee, Foofa, Muno, Plex and Toodee, and a mix of music, animation, games, singing and dancing.

Yo Gabba Gabba! is one of the most popular series on television worldwide and on stage, with broad appeal among preschoolers, their indie-rock loving parents, teens and young adults. The award-winning series, created by Christian Jacobs and Scott Schultz, is produced by The Magic Store and W!LDBRAIN Entertainment. S2BN Entertainment, in association with The Magic Store and W!LDBRAIN Entertainment, produces the live show. [….]

YO GABBA GABBA! LIVE! THERE’S A PARTY IN MY CITY took place in over 60 cities in the U.S. in 2010. The 2010 live show played to over 300,000 fans in sold out theatres in all major cities, including Radio City Music Hall in New York and NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles. The live show featured celebrity guest performers, including The Aquabats, Devendra Banhart, Black Kids, Zac Brown, Cold War Kids, Matt Costa, DMC (Run DMC), Drive By Truckers, Dave Grohl, John Heder, Kid Koala, Mates of State, Jack McBrayer, Mix Master Mike, Moby, Ozomatli, Shaggy, Snoop Dogg, Shooter Jennings, Steel Train, Talib Kweli, Nicole Richie, Kid Sister, Keri Russell, Lou Diamond Phillips, Jason Reitman and more.”

Doesn’t that sound AWESOME?! In preparation for the big day, we’ve been renting Yo Gabba Gabba movies from the library, reading Yo Gabba Gabba books, and doing lots of DANCING! I think SuperDad and I are more excited about the show than Mason is at this point since Mason is not a huge TV watcher yet, but he loves to DANCE and is a people watcher, so I’m sure we’ll all have a great time. Wouldn’t it be super fun if Snoop Dog or Jack Black made an appearance at the Minneapolis show?!

The Minneapolis show kicks off their tour and features a 3:00 show and a 6:00 show (LOVE that they have something available for all us parents who can’t always get off of work for this stuff!) and tickets range from $36-$58 and can be purchased here for all shows

    The Jack Black episode will always be my favorite, mostly because that was the first one Aric watched and he was hooked ever since!

  2. Nicci @ Changing the Universe Post author

    Aric’s fave character is Muno! He has a stuffed one that I made for him that he LOVES to give kisses 🙂

    Sorry – forgot to say that my favorite song is “Party in my Tummy” – I also like most of the guests…the puppet master one is pretty good – can’t remember his name.

  8. Stacy Pearson Post author

    Favorite Character – I love them all – but DJ Lance Rock is my favorite – I just envision him as a kid playing with his toys and he imagines them coming to life in song and dance.

    Fave song is: Dream a Little Dream that Foofa sings. My 3 year old sings out so cute. My favorite musician on the show is The Shins.

  10. Tasha and Travy Post author

    We love the song “Theres a party in my tummy” it gets my 4 year old son to eat his veggies and fruits because they want to go party in his tummy.

  11. Tasha and Travy Post author

    My son loved Jack Black. He is such a kid at heart and it was fun episode. (My favorite was Mya, but that is because I enjoyed her music as a teenager.)

    There are SO MANY favorites to choose from! My son & I love this show. My husband even knows the songs! My favorite song is “All My Friends Are Different” while my son’s favorite is “Freeze Game” song. But every night we HAVE TO sing the “Goodbye” song. It always helps him sleep.

    I already follow Yo Gabba Gabba on Facebook. See my profile for proof.

    I don’t have a blog and I don’t tweet. Sorry.

    Ok, instead of a song today, I have a bribe. If you pick me, we can hang out downtown after the show (if our kiddos haven’t completely collapsed from exhaustion from excitement) and we can get some food or something and hang out and be friends and stuff.

    Wait, that actually sounds creepy stalkery. Never mind. Move on!

    It’s getting to be back to school time… better get my teacher singing voice in order *ahem*

    Today is Saturday, Saturday Pizza! Friday Hot dogs, Thursday ice cream, Wednesday SOOOOup Tuesday *Snap* beans, Monday Peanut Butter, Sunday Chicken… All you lucky Children! Now that’s OKAY!
    Gotta Love Dr. Jean!

    Our favorite song is “I like bugs” by Muno! But all the songs on the Bugs episode are great (love Weezer in their bug costumes too)!

    Our daughter is in love, love, love with Foofa. Her Yo Gabba Gabba CD is actually called “Foofa Music” in our house, and her YGG DVD is “Foofa Shows.”
