The Country Bears (built by the Jim Henson Creature Shop) performed a Live Concert at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California. While the full concert was run before the premiere of the film, a smaller version of the show was also performed before every showing of the film for a limited time. Footage of the El Capitan performance, as well as clips captured during the film's premiere opening and behind-the-scenes production alongside interviews with the main cast of characters, was included on the film's DVD release as the bonus feature "The Country Bears Concert For America".

The puppeteers operated the faces via radio controls from the side of the stage, and the suit performers performed and danced to a pre-recorded music track. Pyrotechnics and streamers covering the audience concluded each show.

The original cast performed for the premiere concert, while the suit performer stunt doubles completed the daily run of shows.
