Baby Shark Live has announced its first slate of North American tour dates kicking off on Oct. 3 in South Carolina. The live show based around popular “Baby Shark” children’s song and viral video will visit more than 30 cities over six weeks this fall.

The concert experience from children’s content brand Pinkfong and Round Room Live will run through Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arizona, Utah, California and more. Baby Shark Live will close out the tour with seven East Coast shows ending Nov. 10 at Academy of Music in Philadelphia.

“We’re thrilled to bring Baby Shark Live to families across the country,” said Round Room Live tour producer and co-president Stephen Shaw in a release. “There’s something incredibly special about Baby Shark and it’s exciting to create a show that not only includes singing and dancing but an education component as well.”

Additional shows will be announced at a future date with Baby Shark Live slated to visit more than 100 U.S. and Canadian markets through 2020.

The live show will feature Baby Shark meeting up with his friend Pinkfong to explore the sea with dancing, singing and brand-new music. Baby Shark Live will also feature familiar tracks “Five Little Monkeys,” “Wheels on the Bus,” “Jungle Boogie,” “Monkey Banana Dance” and “Baby Shark.”

“Baby Shark,” Pinkfong’s hit song about a family of sharks, entered the Billboard 100 chart at No. 32 earlier this year its accompanying dance video has reached more than 3 billion views on YouTube.
