The show is designed to be an introduction to a real live rock show experience in a kid friendly environment. The shows will feature a full band, with vocal duties shared by adults and kids alike, as well as audience participation, dance contests, video screens and song voting.

The first round of dates for the 80-plus city tour launches with a pair of shows October 12-13 at the Adler Theatre in Davenport, Iowa, and runs through the end of the year.

Other stops on the schedule include Target Center in Minneapolis (October 20), the Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville, Ind. (October 28), Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Mich. (November 9), Big Sandy Superstore Arena in Huntington, W.Va. (November 21), and 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore (December 15).

Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.

Kidz Bop features chart-topping songs – with sanitized lyrics where necessary – sung by kids for kids. The series was introduced six years ago and has continued to build in popularity, with each of its last five releases debuting near the top of the album charts.
