Ready for the Best Time Ever?! KIDZ BOP Coming to Miami Beach

Are you ready for the best time ever? Then get ready for the best news ever: KIDZ BOP COMING TO MIAMI BEACH

Yes, the “#1 Kids’ Artist” in the U.S.A. is coming to the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater for KIDZ BOP Live on August 6th (2017)!

This multi-talented group of kids sing and dance to today’s most popular music hits! They also take current pop songs and make them kid-friendly and parent-approved.

KIDZ BOP coming to Miami Beach

And our friend Kimberly at Growing Up Glad blog has the concert details!

For my family, it was the first pop music my girls listened to when we graduated from Nursery Rhymes and The Wiggles.

They slightly alter the music to eliminate any questionable words or innuendos. Kidz Bop also has their own SiriusXM station-KIDZ BOP Radio on channel 77 and it is always on in our car. Sometimes I realize the station is still playing even when I’m alone!

Along with their radio station, they have music videos, a YouTube channel and best-selling compilation CDs featuring today’s biggest hits “sung by kids, for kids.” Their videos are filmed at fun locations and the kids wear colorful, age-appropriate clothes as they sing and dance. My girls are mesmerized when they watch their videos.

BREAKING: KIDZ BOP Coming to Miami Beach

The Kidz Bop Kidz also tour live in concert and we’re so excited they’re coming to the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater.

It was also my older daughter’s first ever concert. This one coming up will be my younger daughter’s first concert experience. It was a great show that opened up with talented local children on stage. They were from different dance schools and performed/warmed up the crowd before the show. Then the Kidz Bop kidz came on and danced and sang to the most current pop hits!

I felt the concert was timed appropriately to keep the attention of the young audience.

So, if you’re ready to have the BEST TIME EVER, it’s time to get your tickets to the new Kidz Bop concert coming to Miami Beach! I know we’ll be there!

Tickets can be purchased HERE.
