Is it sad that Yo Gabba Gabba Live is currently on my list of favorite live shows? Not just favorite live kid shows, but one of my favorite live shows ever?
While I liked the music and on-stage theatrics, I must admit the reason the show ranks so high is because of how much I enjoyed watching Camille enjoy the show. We’ve attended live kid shows before, but the energy and crowd participation at the Gabba show was the best we’ve seen yet.
Another reason our show experience was so great was location, location, location. We bought our tickets well in advance and scored third row seats. It was really cool being so close to the stage and the beloved characters. When confetti and balloons rained from the ceiling, we were right in the thick of it. When the kids began dancing in the aisles, our spot in the orchestra pit provided a most excellent dance floor.
The look on Camille’s face when Brobee grabbed some balloons and floated into the air was truly priceless. Sure, I could see the wire lifting him safely off the stage, but when you’re four years old, it’s just pure magic.
Best of all, our seats were not just close, they were aisle seats right next to the stage steps. This gave us prime access to the actors/characters. Here’s the video proof – a quick clip montage of our Gabba adventure, including Camille’s high-five with DJ Lance Rock and hugs from Muno and Foofa.
