Everybody remain calm: Baby Shark is officially going on tour! Yes, the viral sensation is hitting the road for a 100-date North American live show. Who's excited?
For those who haven't heard of Baby Shark (where have you been!?!), the uber catchy children's song was created by South Korean education brand Pinkfong. They're teaming up with Round Room Live, the same production company that created the live show for Disney Jr.'sPJ Masks series, to create a "one-of-a-kind" live, musical performance.
“We are really excited to be partnering with Pinkfong to bring a live version of their viral sensation ‘Baby Shark’ throughout the U.S. and Canada,” Stephen Shaw, co-president of Round Room Live and lead producer of the upcoming live show said in a press release. “Baby Shark Live! is a world-class children’s brand that transfers naturally to the live stage, and we can’t wait to delight fans with this fun and engaging concert experience.”
Shaw told Billboard that Pinkfong's catalogue of more than 400 titles will play a big part in the live show. The show will star Baby Shark alongside his little fox pal Pinkfong. The two friends will take viewers on a musical journey under the sea, according to the press release. Viewers can expect them to sing a number of classic children's songs, including "Wheels on the Bus," "Jungle Boogie," and "Monkey Banana Dance."
While few other details are known about the tour, Baby Shark and Pinkfong made their live debut at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in September 2018. We can only imagine their new live show will capture the same energy.
The tour dates will be announced on July 9. Tickets aren't available just yet, so, keep your eye out for that.
