Blippi Live: Presale Tickets Information and Tour Dates Announced for Children's Musical

Blippi, the YouTube sensation loved by children everywhere, is taking its show on the road.

Created by Stevin John in 2014, the show features the character Blippi—played by John—and aims to educate children on topics like colors, numbers and much much more. The YouTube channel has 7.51 million subscribers.

"My goal with Blippi was to bring positive emotions and memories to the act of learning," says John on the official Blippi website. After a few weeks of doodling wardrobe ideas, brainstorming the characters' names and jotting down video topics, John decided to host the show himself.

The live show, which is designed for children aged between two and six, will feature singing, dancing and new adventures. The show is expected to be 80 minutes in length, with a 20-minute intermission.

The tour starts today (February 19, 2020) in Atlanta, Georgia, and will finish in July 2020 in New Jersey. Tickets can be bought at local box offices with additional "meet and greet" upgrades available, where families can meet the stars of the show. If families wish to buy tickets online, they can visit Ticketmaster for both event tickets and meet-and-greet upgrades.
