Gabba Gabba Hey The Musical!

Ramones The forefathers of punk rock, The Ramones, are to get their own musical.

According to an interview, in last week’s issue of Kerrang magazine, Tommy Ramone, the only surviving member of the original line-up, said the musical, which is to be called “Gabba Gabba Hey” is to start in Perth, Australia and should be in the UK (and no doubt the US) later this year.

Not too sure how New Yawk’s finest punk rockers and a musical will combine but it will be interesting if nothing else.

By the way “Gabba Gabba Hey” is a line from “Pinhead” which can be found on the Ramones’ second album “Leave Home”.

And if you’re found asking yourself who the Ramones are after this article you really have no place even reading this website!

  1. i was in the Perth cast for GGH! and i can say that the season was a sell out and then some. the show was extremely entertaining to watch (and be in) with audiences reaching capacities of about 900 people (in a 800 maximum club)

    the show was held in a club and not a theatre, which drew attention from ramones fans and theatre goers alike, a very ingenious idea, plus its the first musical to ever be held in a club.

    in a word, awesome… i would strongly recommend that you check this musical out when it comes around ur place, wicked stuff!

    Cheers ppl! Peace!

  2. All band incorporate the Ramones sound! I still enjoy listening to the Ramones everyday at 33 years of age!
    For me, it was a great loss Joey died because I knew a domino effect would only follow. Nevertheless, Hey Ho! Lets Go! and I wanna live!
