The news that my son* has been waiting for: “Yo Gabba Gabba” is coming back to Fresno. The trippy toddler show — often referred to as hipster “Sesame Street” — is doing a live show at Saroyan Theatre on March 7. It’s previously played Save Mart Center twice. The live show features the main “Yo Gabba Gabba” characters, plus hip-hop legend Biz Markie, who does a beat-boxing segment with the Gabba gang. Tickets go on sale Dec. 7, but prices haven’t been announced yet.
*Can’t lie, dad is pretty stoked too.
This just in: Much to the delight of your child, Fresno has been added as a stop for the “Yo Gabba Gabba!” live performance tour, setting up at Save Mart Center on Nov. 23.
The show is a Nickelodeon hit, but also achieved a bit of clout in the music world — artists such as MGMT and The Roots have been on Yo Gabba Gabba!, and the show’s characters even performed at Coachella. Case in point: Hip-hop legend Biz Markie is on the tour, teaching kids how to beatbox.
Tickets cost $37 and go on sale at noon on Friday at the Save Mart Center or through Ticketmaster.
