Bart Baker, who has amassed roughly 9 million subscribers and 2.6 billion lifetime views on his YouTube channel thanks to his parody music videos, is teaming up with live events company Mills Entertainment to embark on his first-ever tour. Dubbed Bart Baker: The Celebritease Tour, Baker will perform his favorite parodies in addition to original music. (In November, Baker released his first non-parody single, Drake — which is the debut single off his first original album, also called Celebritease, bowing in March).
“I’m coming at you in real life this April with a super lit show you’ve got to see to believe,” the 30-year-old said in a statement. “We’ve got your favorite parodies, we’ve got original music, we’ve got water — cause you’re gonna get thirsty from all the dancing!”
Only five West Coast tour dates have been announced thus far, and The Celebritease Tour will kick off in Seattle on April 11. Tickets, beginning at $35, as well as VIP packages — which include meet-and-greets and photo opps — are on sale now at www.bartbakerlive.com.

“Bart’s amazing ability to capture the essence of pop culture in his parody videos is second-to-none, and we are thrilled to help bring his vision to the live stage,” Mills Entertainment CEO Michael Mills said in a statement.
Baker, who writes, directs, sings, edits, and acts in his own parodies, is represented by Creative Artists Agency (CAA), 26MGMT, and Maker Studios. Other notable influencer-centric live events produced by Mills Entertainment include Camp17, the Roman vs. Fousey tour, the Dolan Twins’ 4OU Tour.
