Friday night we brought Lennox to see Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! Get the Sillies Out! and let me just tell you, I have never seen Lennox so excited for something to start. She was just about to burst with excitement leading up to the show. “GABBA LAND GABBA LAND, YOOOOO GABBA GABBAAAA”
We got to the show and went to pick up our tickets. I didn’t know where we were going to be sitting, but quickly found out that we were front row – great surprise and I didn’t have to worry about Lennox not being able to see. Although we were front row, I would say everyone would enjoy this show no matter where they sat. It was SO high energy and they encouraged you to get up with your kids and have a great time!
The show is really more of a concert than a show. I have been to other children’s performances and this one takes the cake. It is by far the most entertaining and energetic of any that I have been to. It starts out the same way the TV show does, we all got to bring the characters to life. Within in moments of the show starting, there is confetti falling from the ceiling, the music is blasting and the kids are up jumping and dancing around!
Biz Markie came out to do Biz’s beat of the day as well! It was pretty neat to see him do his thing with the kids. They brought some kids up on stage to do some beats and dance around – they were having a great time!
DJ Lance started talking to Lennox during the show, gave her a high-five and then Plex gave her a knuckle knock. I think her 2-year-old life was made that night! The next day she told me that she knuckle knocked Plex – she was excited!
The show is a fun-filled 60-70 minutes plus a 15-20 minute intermission (snack break as Toodee said!). As I said before, it is more of a concert than a story. They go through a bunch of their fun songs and dances from the Yo Gabba Gabba TV show. I really think the parents had just as much fun as the kids did. I didn’t see anyone sitting down during their dancing songs! The kids were in the aisles having a blast! This is the way a kids show really should be!
Then it was time to say goodbye. Lennox and every kid there was sad to say goodbye but all good things must come to an end! The goodbye song got everyone singing and dancing and then a sea of confetti came down again.
We bought Lennox the live show on DVD and we watched it 4 times this weekend. I think that DVD will get put to use ALOT and well worth the $10!
If Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! is ever in your area, and your kids are into the show, you really should try to attend. I really don’t think you will be disappointed.
