Chuck E. Cheese (pending on your generation) is an iconic spot for birthday celebrations, and a go-to place for kid pizza and arcade games, is making a comeback with a “Summer of Fun” concert tour. The purple shirt mouse mascot and the Munch’s Make Believe Band are hitting the road for its first ever concert tour starting June 5.

In case you forgot or simply don’t know who Munch’s Make Believe Band is, they were the official human sized animal stage band that popped up at Chuck E. Cheese for musical entertainment.

For those 90s kids who remember, seeing the Munch’s Make Believe Band was the icing on the cake to any birthday party. Nothing compared to when the lights dimmed and the music kicked on with Chuck and backup vocalists (Helen and Mr. Munch), keyboard player (also Mr. Munch), guitarist (Jasper) and drum player (Pasqually).

They always had a way of making you feel like you were at a live mini concert and now they’re actually going on tour across multiple cities this summer to celebrate the release of their NEW album, Summer of Fun.
