Nickelodeon’s preschool music group The Fresh Beat Band is planning a live summer concert series as part of their The Fresh Beat Band Live in Concert Tour. The live shows will resume Aug. 1 in Costa Mesa, Calif.
The tour has garnered more than 600,000 attendees since its debut two years ago, making it one of the most successful family music tours in recent years, according to Nickelodeon.
"The Fresh Beats have had one of the most popular, in-demand tours for kids and families, so we're bringing the band back out on the road for this special summer tour," says Doug Cohn, senior vice president, music, Nickelodeon. "Kids will have another chance to see their favorite rock stars hit the stage for 90-minutes of high-energy, singing, dancing and fun surprises."
The Fresh Beat Band teaches preschoolers the fundamentals of music such as melody, rhythm, tempo and performance styles all while incorporating life skills such as the importance of friendship, working together and respecting each other’s differences. The TV series of the same name airs on Nickelodeon, which also just got a brand-new series set to premiere in 2015: “Fresh Beat Band of Spies.”
The tour will kick off at the OC Fair in California and conclude Aug. 31 in Allentown, Penn., at the Great Allentown Fair.
