The best-selling children’s music brand – KIDZ BOP – is making only one stop in West Virginia on their 15th birthday celebration tour “Life Of The Party”. The KIDZ BOP Kids will perform in Clarksburg at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 9 at The Clarksburg Amphitheater at the Veterans Memorial Park on U.S. Route 98. Doors open at 6 p.m.
“We’re so excited to be coming back to West Virginia this year!” says Alyssa Snyder, Marketing and Public Relations Coordinator at KIDZ BOP. “The KIDZ BOP Kids played The Clarksburg Amphitheater last summer and it was a giant success.”
The spring launch of the “Life Of The Party”, its third annual live tour, kicks off KIDZ BOP’s year-long birthday celebration.
In launching “Life Of The Party” tour, Victor Zaraya, President of KIDZ BOP, says he’s enthused about the tour, which will visit more than 50 cities nationwide this year.
“We’re looking forward to hitting the road again in 2016 and bringing our birthday celebration to the hometowns of families who listen to our music every day,” he stated. “For tens of thousands of kids each year, KIDZ BOP Live is their first concert experience. Our all-new show will be an exciting and special experience for fans everywhere.”
The show features the KIDZ BOP Kids: Ashlynn Chong, Grant Knoche, Matt Martinez and Sela Hack. They will perform this year’s top pop songs and awesome new dance moves. And if that’s not enough…the show will also feature even more fun and surprises from the talented Kids.
The KIDZ BOP Kids – named Billboard Magazine’s “#1 Kids’ Artists” for the sixth consecutive year – outsold some of today’s biggest artists in 2015, including Meghan Trainor, Sam Smith and Maroon 5. And that same year, they released the best-selling children’s album of the year -KIDZ BOP 27.
On January 15, they released their latest album in the series – KIDZ BOP 31, which marked the brand’s 23rd Top 10 debut on the Billboard 200 Chart. More than 16 million KIDZ BOP albums have sold since the family-friendly audio collection debuted in 2001. Only three artists in history (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Barbra Streisand) have had more Top 10 albums!
The KIDZ BOP music brand features today’s biggest hits “sung for kids by kids”, according to its organizers. KIDZ BOP connects with kids and families through its best-selling music, popular KIDZ BOP Radio channel on SiriusXM, television commercials, music videos, consumer products and live tours.
Event organizers report that the “Life Of The Party” tour “is the ultimate pop star experience that’s perfect for the whole family”.
“Kids like KIDZ BOP because it’s fun!” Snyder exclaimed. “Kids love hearing other kids sing their favorite songs. Parents love it, too; they can play the music for their children knowing it’s safe and kid-friendly.”
Snyder says she hopes children and their families will come out for a summer evening of great entertainment everyone can enjoy.
“The KIDZ BOP Life Of The Party Tour continues KIDZ BOP’s mission of providing ‘music firsts’, as the show is many kids’ first concert experience,” Snyder states. “It’s a fun, high-energy show perfect for the entire family!”
