Do you love Yo Gabba Gabba!? When it first aired on Nickelodeon in 2007 I thought the creators were on crack. It was just so wild and weird. But then we watched it…and watched it…and watched it some more. It quickly became a favorite for my boys. I guess they like wild and weird! And after watching it so much, I came to realize that Yo Gabba Gabba! was cool and had a lot of really great learning stories.
Well now Yo Gabba Gabba is going on tour and I want to go! There are currently only three cities on their tour. I don’t know if there will be more added or not, but the cities currently scheduled are:
- Los Angeles, CA on November 14th
- New York, NY on November 21st
- Chicago, IL on December 5th
Tickets will go on sale this Friday, October 9, 2009 at Ticketmaster and YoGabbaGabbaLive.com.
In addition to taking their show on the road, the group is releasing their first ever music CD: Yo Gabba Gabba! Music is Awesome! This CD will feature the songs from the show that your kids have grown to love and will be available for purchase on October 20th (but can be pre-ordered now!) from Amazon, iTunes and Target.
I will be receiving one soon to review, so I’ll be sure to tell you what I think about it.

Simple. Tell me something you love about Yo Gabba Gabba! It can be a favorite episode, character, story line. Whatever. Personally, we LOVE Biz’s Beat of the Day. It’s really fun to watch the boys spit all over themselves while trying to copy the beat boxing sounds of Biz Markie!
