Blue Man Group to Premiere New Show at Hollywood Bowl Tonight
Tonight, Blue Man Group, the world-wide entertainment phenomenon, unveils an all new, never-seen-before orchestral show at the iconic Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. This world premiere performance will feature wild collaborations with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, an eclectic array of special guests, virtuoso musicianship, and mayhem on the grandest scale. Blue Man Group will play The Bowl for two performances only: tonight, September 6 and tomorrow, Saturday, September 7 at 8:00 p.m. (PST).
The luminescent-infused performance will be a colorful and interactive celebration of art and music as it takes guests on an indescribable journey that only Blue Man Group can offer in one of the world's largest natural amphitheaters and most iconic performance venues. The Hollywood Bowl will be utterly transformed, courtesy of cutting edge video mapping by Obscura Digital, into a fully-immersive Blue Man Group experience from the moment guests enter the space. Blue Man Group will invade the legendary amphitheater, alongside the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, its world-renowned Principal Guest Conductor Thomas Wilkins, and the Blue Man Group band, for a multi-sensory, never-before- experienced show. Combining their iconic style and unique instruments, the blue trio will be joined by the massive (more than 80-piece) Hollywood Bowl Orchestra in exhilarating new arrangements of their own signature melodies, as well as their singular take on some of the classical music world's best known pieces. The show will also feature the debut of brand new instruments conceived and designed by the mad scientist minds of Blue Man Group.
During a special performance, Blue Man Group will be joined by the wildly popular and Grammy- nominated Brazilian band Monobloco. As an extension of their recent collaboration at Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, Blue Man Group will transport patrons to the streets of the world-famous festival by combining their unique percussive instruments with Monobloco's cultural-inspired sounds of samba-rock and funk. The wild collaboration will propel audience members into an infectious musical celebration.
In addition to Monobloco, Blue Man Group will be joined onstage by a once-in-a-lifetime array of special guests, including two-time Grammy-nominee Tracy Bonham, multi-talented recording artist Butterscotch, famed Venice Beach Boardwalk performer/artist Harry Perry, and a list of internationally acclaimed master-musicians including Natsuki Tamura (didgeridoo), Brian Wolff (tuba), Janeen Rae Heller (musical saw), William Zeitler (glass armonica), Charles Richard Lester (theremin), Arjuna (California throat singer), Ronobir Lahiri (sitar), Sara Leib (scat singer), the Los Angeles Police Emerald Society Pipes and Drums, and more!
In classic Hollywood Bowl style, the evening will climax with a dazzling fireworks display, thrillingly underscored with a brand new Blue Man Group composition.
