Yo Gabba Gabba! There's a Party in My City! PhiladelphiaTicket Giveaway

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Congratulations to our winner, Heather of Girl Gone Mom, selected randomly via random.org (1-52>28-your following on Twitter entry was the winner).

Have you heard the giddy screams of toddlers and pre-schoolers everywhere? Ok, probably not...but in a real life scene perfectly mirroring the "Have you Heard About Hugo and Kim?" scene from Bye Bye Birdie - I saw the blogger forum pages take off like wildfire at the announcement that Yo Gabba Gabba! was about to tour...and maybe to a city near you. Of course, I added fuel to the fire with my not so tech-savvy friends. I ran from cube to cube to proclaim the news to my fellow mommy co-workers (we'll ignore the fact that the dads and parents of teenagers were either rolling their eyes or laughing at me). I phoned and e-mailed my family and friends until my fingers needed rest. This is the concert event of the summer. (Ahem...I will even be ending my Aerosmith concert weekend early to get back in time for Yo Gabba Gabba!) This, my friends, is dedication. Or fanaticism.

It's funny really, my introduction to Yo Gabba Gabba! was via a conversation with my sister after her vacation in the late summer of 2007. In her recap, she stopped to exclaim, "And have you seen that crazy new show that's on? As soon as I saw it I made the kids turn it off...it's awful." Her kids had found it on the hotel tv while away. Intrigued as to what had caused such a stir, I tuned in myself...and laughed - because I loved it. I loved the lessons. I loved that the characters used proper speech and did more than blink. And I love the music. The songs throughout the show, the focus on teaching about instruments, and guest musicians. Loved it! (And I think she realized it was pretty great along the way, too).

If you or your youngun's are fellow fanatics - you may want to check if Yo Gabba Gabba will be visiting a city near you.

But - if you are one of the very fortunate who live in the Delaware Valley - or a roadie who plans to follow the tour from city to city, I am happy to announce that they will be performing at the Mann Music Center on August 29th:

Fresh off a triumphant sold-out tour debut, a headlining performance at The White House, a critically-acclaimed, chart-topping album, and an appearance at Coachella that garnered rave reviews from spectators and media alike, DJ Lance Rock and the cast of YO GABBA GABBA! are heading back on the road with YO GABBA GABBA! LIVE!: THERE’S A PARTY IN MY CITY! to play to enthusiastic fans in Philadelphia. Today’s hottest live show for families will be at the Mann Center on August 29th for two shows.  YO GABBA GABBA! LIVE!: THERE’S A PARTY IN MY CITY! is produced by S2BN Entertainment in association with Wildbrain Entertainment and The Magic Store and promoted by AEG Live & The Mann Center.

Champions on the stage and in the community, the Gabba Gang will partner with Habitat for Humanity to further their homebuilding efforts in Philadelphia.  In addition, $1 from every ticket sold for YO GABBA GABBA!

Hi there, my daughter will be 2 August 24th and I can't believe they are coming to Philly the week of her birthday!!! Her birthday party will actually be Yo Gabba Gabba theme. She started watching the show since she was 7 months old and I knew she would love it because at 7 months they made her smile and laugh! We've been back and forth about taking her to the NY one but now they're in Philly! This would be the best birthday present ever! Thanks.
