The award-winning stage show, known for its trio of bald and blue performers, will be coming to the Sandman Centre in 2019.
At BLUE MAN GROUP, audiences will rock, laugh and party as three bald and blue characters explore the world and discover music, comedy and surprises at every turn.
The BLUE MAN GROUP World Tour showcases classic Blue Man favorites along with brand new content featuring new music, fresh stories, custom instruments and sensory stimulating graphics.
Co-founder Chris Wink says, ‘When we first began creating performances centered on this innocent, curious character called Blue Man, we never dreamt where he would lead us. We are so honored to be able to share our show with the people of Kamloops and beyond.’
“We are so excited to announce Kamloops as the next stop on BLUE MAN GROUP’S 2019 World Tour,” said Benoit Mathieu, Executive Managing Director. “Since the recent acquisition by Cirque du Soleil, BLUE MAN GROUP has expanded its creative power and global distribution opportunities, enabling us to deliver the show to new audiences around the world. With no language barrier to overcome, as the Blue Men don’t speak, fans of all ages, cultures and nationalities can enjoy the experience.”
Blue Man Group is a global entertainment phenomenon, known for its award-winning theatrical productions, iconic characters and multiple creative explorations. Blue Man Group is owned and operated by Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group.
Blue Man Group performances are euphoric celebrations of human connection through art, music, comedy and non-verbal communication. Since debuting at New York’s Astor Place Theatre in 1991, the live show has expanded to additional domestic residencies in Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas and Orlando, an international residency in Berlin, and multiple North American and World tours, reaching more than 35 million people worldwide. Blue Man Group is universally appealing to a broad range of age groups and cultural backgrounds.
A part of the pop culture zeitgeist, Blue Man Group has appeared countless times on hit shows including Dancing with the Stars, The Tonight Show, Arrested Development, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Schlag den Raab (Germany), WOWOW (Japan) and Caldeirão do Huck (Brazil). Additionally, Blue Man Group has served as the face of branding campaigns for Intel and TIM/Brasil.
Continuously identifying and developing new ways to impact the entertainment industry, Blue Man Group has contributed to various film and TV scores, and released multiple albums including the Grammy-Nominated Audio. The rock concert parody, “Megastar World Tour” played arenas across the globe. The book, Blue Man World, is a visually stunning anthropological exploration of the curious bald and blue character.
