Manila, Philippines--Part of its 25th-anniversary world tour, BLUE MAN GROUP, the world famous trio of bald, blue-skinned, and tight-lipped performing artists, brings on the fun at the Theater at Solaire now through Sunday, September 25. The tour premiered in Singapore last March and has already made stops in New Zealand and Macau.

Together with telecom giant Globe Telecom, Blue Man Productions Ltd., Lunchbox Productions Ltd., and Concertus Manila bring BLUE MAN GROUP to Manila.

BLUE MAN GROUP, a 90-minute immersive theatrical experience, which caters to a wide range of demographics, is comedy, theater, rock concert, and private party all rolled into one. It features the group's own brand of techno-tribal music, custom-made musical instruments such as PVC pipes, state-of-the-art visual effects, euphoric dance moves, childlike sense of humor, 30 liters of primary color paint, and giant inflatable balloons.

Born of the creative urge to explore the unknown by its creators and the original Blue Men Chris Wink, Matt Goldman, and Phil Stanton, BLUE MAN GROUP has been performed 3,600 times every year and seen by over 35 million people in 15 countries. In 1991, the show started out small on the streets of New York City until pocket productions were presented at downtown clubs, which finally spawned a full-length show at Astor Place Theatre in the NoHo district of Manhattan. To date, it also has concurrent open-ended productions in Boston, Las Vegas, Orlando, and Chicago.

In Manila, Blue Men Meridian (also the BLUE MAN GROUP's captain), Barney Haas, Thom Rackett, and Joe Woolmer are accompanied by band members Antonio Aguirre (strings, also the resident musical director), Olaf Grote (strings), Gerhard Schmitt (strings), Jeff Tortora (percussion), Luke Sangerman (percussion), and Randy Wooten (percussion).
