READING, Pa. -

Attention all preschoolers! The Fresh Beat Band, Nickelodeon's preschool music group and stars of the hit TV series of the same name, have a date with their fans in Reading.

The band will perform a live concert as the Sovereign Center at 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 8. It's one of just 60 performances on the band's nationwide tour this year.

"The Fresh Beat Band is back by popular demand," said Doug Cohn, senior vice president of music for Nickelodeon. "The Fresh Beat Band Live in Concert Tour has been so successful because it provides 90 minutes of family bonding time where kids and parents can laugh, sing and dance along with the fantastic Fresh Beats."

Tickets for the concert will go on sale this Saturday at the Sovereign Center box office and all Ticketmaster outlets, including charge by phone and online.

Then at 7 p.m. on Sunday, The Fresh Beat Band's first-ever primetime concert special will premiere on Nick Jr.

The 30-minute special will give viewers an all-access pass to The Fresh Beat Band concert with behind-the-scenes footage and more.

The Fresh Beat Band debuted in 2009 and is now in its third season on Nickelodeon. The Fresh Beat Band centers on four best friends -- Kiki, Marina, Twist and Shout -- in a band who love to sing and dance.

Preschoolers learn the fundamentals of music such as melody, rhythm, tempo and performance styles and the importance of friendship, working together, and respecting each other’s differences, officials said.
