World’s Most Profitable Cover Act Hits The Road

With sales of ten million discs over their thirteen volumes, there are few music acts more profitable these days than the incredible, anonymous parade of voices known as Kidz Bop. Just like last year, the Kidz are hitting the road, including a somewhat odd appearance at UCLA’s Royce Hall. Below the cut, a preview of what you’re in store for: a lead singer who must be wondering if dropping out of college was the best idea, and a stirring moment previously hidden in all the noise by those hacks in the All-American Rejects. If you’re finding those Jonas Brothers just a bit too original, the dates are down there as well.

Here are the dates (noticeably lacking an appearance in Phoenix…hello, Kidz Bop overlords!)
