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.
After bringing its live stage show to Fresno for the first time last year, the cast of kids TV fave “Yo Gabba Gabba!” has announced its returning to Save Mart Center for two shows on Nov. 18 — at 3:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Tickets cost $32 and $42. They’ll go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday, June 6. Hit up Ticketmaster or the Save Mart Center box office to get yours.
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.
