The Fresh Beat Band is coming to Long Island
Nickelodeon's The Fresh Beat Band is coming to Long Island in December, and tickets are on sale now.
Yvette Gonzalez-Nacer (Kiki), Tara Perry (Marina), Jon Beavers (Twist) and Thomas Hobson (Shout) are hitting the road for a nationwide concert tour, kicking off this fall. The Fresh Beat Band Greatest Hits Live will feature the band's greatest hits including "Bananas," "Here We Go" and a remixed version of "Great Day," plus new songs like the pop classic "Walk Like An Egyptian."
The band will be making stops in 40 cities, including NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Dec. 14 and four shows at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan on Jan. 17 and 18. Tickets and Fresh Beach Band VIP packages with meet and greets will be available at freshbeatbandlive.com and ticketmaster.com.
The preschool series has become so popular that Nickelodeon is currently in production on a new animated series, "Fresh Beat Band of Spies," based on the live-action show. In the series, the same characters are bandmates and also undercover spies. Kiki, Marina, Twist and Show will use their own talents and spy gear to outwit a goofy cast of bad guys and solve wacky mysteries. The new television show is expected to debut in 2015.
