Gabba Gabba Hey! debut was in Perth, Australia, at the Monkey Bar on August 17-21, 2004. With 18 high energy Ramones songs and a rather touching love story all performed in 70 minutes, Gabba Gabba Hey! is streetwise yet heartfelt; retro but also new and innovative.

Tommy Ramone wrote following in late August, 2004:
With a book by novelist Michael Herrmann, the show was directed by New York-based Andy Goldberg with choreography by Strictly Ballroom star Paul Mercurio. I was very happy to be involved as the musical director. With a cast of seven and a band of three (lead by former Clash guitarist Nick Sheppard) the production is both faithful to the spirit of the Ramones as well as a groundbreaking rock-theater hybrid.

- The plan is for the show to begin running also in the USA soon + some other plans are informed later.

GABBA GABBA HEY! -MUSICAL IN PERTH, AUSTRALIA

-Gabba Gabba Hey! debut was in Perth, Australia, at the Monkey Bar on August 17-21, 2004. Tickets, priced $25-$39.90 were available by logging on to http://www.bocsticketing.com.au.
Tommy Ramone wrote following in late August, 2004 after debut:
This is Tommy Ramone with an update on The Ramones Musical Gabba Gabba Hey! We just finished a successful showcase run in Perth Australia. It was well received by both the audience and the critics.
William Ferrier who was in the lead role wrote following:
" We've just done shows. Everyone I've talked to after the show have responded positively (even the dictator fans). It's loud and fast Ramones style all under 70 minutes. You gotta have a sense of humour. It's much in the campy style of Rock'N'Roll High School. It's been a blast hanging out with Tommy. I asked him alot of questions about the good old days and he really gave us an in-sight of what it was like growing up with the rest of the guys. It's been a dream come true to work with him."
