Yo Gabba Gabba Live: Get the Sillies Out hit Phoenix Sunday afternoon. It was the boys first concert and it was awesome! The whole show is fun and interactive, plus hip enough to keep the parents entertained too!
The highlight of the show for the boys was the interactive singing and dancing. They played lots of our favorite songs including Hold Still! The only song we missed was “Keep Trying”. Apparently Biz Markie attempts to make every show, I was excited that he made the Phoenix show. Biz Markie with guest performer, Mike Park from Skankin Pickle, made the show cool for the adults. Plus it was fun seeing a sea of families standing up and dancing to every song!
Our Show Takeaways
- Consider bring ear protection, it wasn’t “Monster Jam” loud but it was concert like and took a few songs for Elliot to adjust.
- Dress the part! I would estimate 1/2 the audience had Yo Gabba Gabba shirts, beanies, or costumes on! It was quite fun.
- Attempt potty breaks before the show if possible. We were rushed and Quinn ended up going TWICE during the show. Once during the awesome song Hold Still and again during Biz Markie. Two awesome parts in my opinion!
- The show is timed perfectly, ~80 minutes with a 20 minute intermission. My boys probably could have done another 15 minutes but I wouldn’t want to push it. It’s very interactive so you are constantly on your feet, singing and dancing. This mommy could not have bounced too much longer holding Elliot….
- Arrive extra early. Unfortunately we were running late (and many other families apparently) so even right before the show the lines to find parking and enter the show were long. I wish we had arrived extra early and not felt rushed.
- Bring plenty of cash for souvenirs (if you indulge) the light up wands (light sabers to my boys) were $10 each!
We can’t wait for Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! to come back. As soon as we left the theater Quinn was asking when we could watch the show again!
