Blue Man Group!

Saw them for the first time in 1991 at the Astor Place Theater in NYC when they took the tickets and cleaned the bathrooms for each show. Last night in Billings, MT was absolutely fantastic! HH

I spent the evening with them on You Tube Monday. One of my favorite entertainments.

I saw them a few years ago in Orlando. They gave me a big garbage bag and I'm glad they did. It intercepted a lot of flying goo.

It was a VERY entertaining show.

Very entertaining. It's been a few years so if I get a chance to see them again I think I will.

I had never heard of them; so I had to go to Google and You Tube. I should have been content to leave well enough alone. Just not my thing.

I doubt only 12. They do a huge show in LV. Plus the original in Boston. Travelling show. Other cities. Gotta be 100 or so Blue Men right now. I remember them taking auditions a couple of decades ago.

Their original show in Boston is small. Funny. Good. You'd never know it was a problem.

Then about 5-6 years ago, I went to LV. Holy crap. Basically ,the exact same show - 3x as big. WOW! The dancing neon sign guy just wow'd me to pieces.

I like it. I've probably been 5-6 times over the last 20 years. Fun night out. Sit near the back and your triceps won't hurt as much.

I saw the Orlando show a few months ago. I wonder how many people see the show, the hit the plumbing dept. at Home Depot to build one of those pipe things they play.

So they are a cover band with a kick a** light show and a large make-up budget?
