BLUE MAN GROUP National Tour Plays 1,000th Performance Today
As it begins the fourth year of its national tour, Blue Man Group is honored and thrilled to celebrate its 1,000th performance tonight, October 25, 2013, in Duluth, MN. The upcoming year of the tour includes a number of first-time visits, as well as repeat visits. It will play more than 50 markets across the country and in Canada. The national tour opened on September 14, 2010, in Dallas, TX. Blue Man Group also maintains resident productions in Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York, and Orlando.
"It is such a joy to have the opportunity to bring the Blue Man experience to cities all over the country. Our national tour has now played 1,000 performances in 160 cities from coast to coast, and we are still going strong!," says Philip Stanton, Co-Founder of Blue Man Group.
The critically acclaimed Blue Man Group creates experiences that defy categorization. Blue Man Group is best known for multi-media performances that feature three bald and blue characters who take the audience on a journey that is funny, intelligent and visually stunning. A live band, whose haunting tribal rhythms help drive the show to its climax, accompanies the Blue Men.
The theatrical tour features brand new content highlighted by classic Blue Man favorites. The new sound, set, and video design centeringaround a proscenium-sized LED curtain and high-resolution screen create an entirely new, high-impact visual experience for Broadway houses across the nation.
