Yo Gabba Gabba! LIVE! Get the Sillies Out!
Last week, my husband and I received tickets to see Yo Gabba Gabba! LIVE! Get the Sillies Out! at the Akoo Theater in Rosemont, Illinois. Our two youngest daughters absolutely had a blast, and my husband I both agreed that it was one of the best kids’ concerts we’ve attended in recent years.
If you’re a fan of the show -- as we are in my house -- then you’ll know what to except if you plan on attending the concert when it comes to your neck of the woods. Like the television show it’s predicated on, Get the Sillies Out! is highly energetic, bright and bold, and always fun. In fact, I think it’s pretty safe to say that the parents who attended with us had just as much at the concert as our kids!
The Akoo Theater is a nice setup because there really isn’t a bad seat in the house, but getting as close to the stage as possible is an even better way to enjoy the show, especially if you’re a fan of bubbles, exploding streamers, and confetti…lots and lots of confetti.
The show is roughly 90 minutes long, with a short intermission, which you’ll need use to recuperate from the high intensity of the first part of the show, especially if you join in with your kids who will no doubt be dancing in the isles to songs like “There’s a Party in my Tummy,” “I Love Bugs,” and, of course, “Biz’s Beat of the Day.” Yep, that’s right! Biz Markie makes an appearance during the show, much to the delight of the audience, who nearly brought the house down when he took to the stage.
We had so much fun that we can’t wait to see the next Yo Gabba Gabba! show. To see if there are any upcoming performances in your area, visit www.yogabbagabbalive.com/events, and don’t forget to bring your kids!
