In celebration of the fact that their Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II DVD is now out, as well as the fact that their next season is coming soon; Seth Green and the rest of the Robot Chicken crew has decided to give a little something back to the fans. And that’s why their touring roller rinks nationwide with rockers Gym Class Heroes on hand for The Robot Chicken On Wheels Tour.
â€œOur show is so much fun, we want to invite everyone to have fun with us,â€ says Seth Green. â€œGrab your friends, your couple\’s skate partner and some kneepads. We\’re coming to your town! Or at least to a major market somewhat close to your town.â€
â€œWhen Seth first pitched the idea of throwing roller skating parties around the country, I rolled my eyes and laughed at him,â€ says Matthew Senreich. â€œI said, â€˜That\’s crazy talk.\’ Now that we\’re actually going to do it, I\’m in awe of its absurdity and can\’t wait to attend. It fits with the randomness of our Robot Chicken show. Why not throw roller skating parties across the U.S.?â€
Along with the two co creators their will be several other celebrity guests on hand out of the many people who have been linked to the show, including actor and Robot Chicken writer/voice talent Breckin Meyer. There will also be plenty of Robot Chicken-themed activities and games and exclusive Adult Swim merchandise. Gym Class Heroes recently released their 7th studio album Be The Judge, and have been playing in support ever since. So the tour should be a good chance to catch them in a more intimate setting.
The bus will be rolling into Jamz Roller Skating Center in Philadelphia on August 12th
