The Aquabats! Kooky Spooky! Halloween Party! will feature performances of the group’s all-time favorite songs and a number of new songs (including several which haven’t yet been played before an audience) from their 6th studio album, and first album in almost a decade, ‘Kooky Spooky…In Stereo!’ released on August 21 of this year.
“When you release an album called Kooky Spooky, you gotta turn up and turn out on Halloween!,” said lead singer The MC Bat Commander (Christian Jacobs). “We had big touring plans this year to hit the road and celebrate the new album with our fans. That didn’t work out, so we’ll do you one better – beam us straight into your living room and LET’S PARTY! We’re going to go crazy with a live Halloween show and open up a whole new way of interacting with all of our friends, fans and cadets across the globe! HALLOWEEN FLAVORED AQUABATS – LET’S GO!”
Like many other artists, this year has proven to be an action-packed year for The Aquabats. From the release of the ‘Kooky Spooky…In Stereo!’ album,a project funded by fans through a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign in 2018, to the launch of their very own unique online store in late August. This store, www.gloopy.industries, was created by The Aquabats to develop an even tighter connection with their fans through merch. This groundbreaking approach to direct-to-fan merchandising allows the band to crowdfund specialty products, offer fans custom video greetings, respond to fan merchandise ideas, and create one-off limited-edition items.

Day of show tickets increase to $25 per-person beginning Oct. 30.
