pixeltracker

The international entertainment phenomenon, BLUE MAN GROUP is pleased to announce that their wildly popular, award-winning production will be launching its world premiere in Singapore for the first time as part of a new worldwide tour from March to July 2016.

The acclaimed stage show, best known and recognised for its trio of bald and blue performers, promises an outrageous evening of entertainment and will perform at the MasterCard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands from 29 March 2016 for a limited season. Canon is the presenting sponsor of BLUE MAN GROUP, continuing its support for top quality theatre shows staged in Singapore. Tickets are on sale now.

BLUE MAN GROUP is comedy, theatre, rock concert and dance party all rolled into one. Born of the creative urge to explore the unknown the show is a combination of science, comedy, music and vibrant visual effects. The show provides audiences with a fully immersive audiovisual experience complete with electrifying music, sensational technology, a captivating live band and its signature interactive, audience experiences. Having performed their first show almost 25 years ago, to date, over 35 million people across 15 countries have seen one of the various BLUE MAN GROUP productions.

Nick Grace (co-producer) says: "We are absolutely thrilled to be presenting the world premiere of the BLUE MAN GROUP World Tour at The MasterCard Theatres in Singapore. When looking for the right place to rehearse and open our show, Singapore seemed the obvious choice with such a world class theatre in one of the most exciting and vibrant cities in the world."

The BLUE MAN GROUP show creates experiences that defy categorization, taking the audience on a journey that is funny, intelligent and visually stunning, culminating in the trademark Blue Man Group finale in a blissful party atmosphere. The trio is accompanied by a live band whose tribal rhythms help drive the show to its unforgettable climax.

BLUE MAN GROUP was founded by three close friends Chris Wink, Matt Goldman and Phil Stanton in New York in 1991, as a way to celebrate the human spirit through music, science, art and theatre. It has grown to include permanent shows in Las Vegas, New York, Orlando, Boston, Chicago and Berlin, as well as a touring production in North America.

Co-founder Chris Wink says: "When we first began creating performances centred on this innocent, curious character called Blue Man, we never dreamt where he would lead us. We are so honoured to be able to share our show with the people of Singapore and beyond. We believe the Blue Man's universal message of joyful exuberance and euphoric celebration resonates within all of us."

In 2016, the BLUE MAN GROUP theatrical tour will embark on a World Tour which showcases classic Blue Man favourites, along with brand new content and starts in Singapore. Now approaching their 25th year of creativity, this artistic group is continually updating and refreshing Blue Man shows with new music, fresh stories, custom instruments and state-of-the-art technology.

"Canon has been a keen supporter of the arts and it is our desire to support varied world-class musicals and acts to cater to different interests in the Singapore community. This time round, we are delighted to be the presenting sponsor of the Blue Man Group which will make its first ever performance in Singapore," said Mr. Kensaku Konishi, President and CEO of Canon Singapore. "As an imaging technology company, we are impressed by the use of colours and technology to heighten sensations and we are certain that audiences will enjoy this unconventional experience."

Producer and CEO of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, James Cundall said "I have been trying to get this cooler-than-cool show to Singapore since I first saw it years ago, and I am so excited that we have finally succeeded! BLUE MAN GROUP is hugely popular around the world - first time audiences leave the theatre so exhilarated by the show that it has one of the highest return businesses of any theatrical event. I know it will be the talk of Singapore and around the South East Asia region when audiences finally get to experience this innovative, playful, colourful spectacle."

Beyond the stage show, BLUE MAN GROUP has toured the globe with the 'Megastar World Tour' rock concert parody, produced five albums, including the Grammy-nominated Audio, and contributed to numerous film and TV scores. They've also appeared in several commercials and hit TV shows.

Milan Rokic, CEO of Sliding Doors Entertainment adds: "With no spoken language, except for a narrator, BLUE MAN GROUP is perfect for all ages, languages and cultures. It gives everyone the freedom to reconnect with their inner child, to re-experience mischievousness and sheer joy, and see what fun three guys can have with 30 litres of paint and 55 mashed-up bananas in the space of an hour and a half!"

BLUE MAN GROUP is brought to Singapore by Blue Man Productions Ltd, Nick Grace Management, Lunchbox Theatrical Productions Ltd, Sliding Doors Entertainment and BASE Entertainment Asia.

BLUE MAN GROUP - it's not just a show, it's a state of mind.
