Blue Man Group Will Be In Tucson In Two Weeks

Posted By on Wed, Apr 10, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Broadway in Tucson is bringing Blue Man Group to the Tucson Music Hall in two weeks.

The group has become popular for its musical performances that involve comedy, audience interaction and sometimes toilet paper being thrown into the crowd. At least that's what Mario Divetta experienced three years ago when he saw them in Las Vegas.

"You're in Vegas already," Divetta said, "you got a drink in your hand and you're just watching this really interesting, unique, multimedia show ... I had a blast when I was watching it."

Divetta, marketing and sales manager for Broadway in Tucson, said they had to jump on the opportunity of bringing the group to Tucson again. Blue Man Group performed five shows about two years ago in Tucson.

The group will hold eight performances this time around, giving more Tucsonans the opportunity to watch the "worldwide phenomena," Divetta said. Tickets have been on sale since November and have been selling strong but there are still some tickets left, he added.

The performances involve unusual instruments such as pipes and oil barrels.

"They kind of bring out these oil barrel looking things and put something on the top and then when they start drumming it, it's almost like a water/light show," Divetta said. "You see the splash of these color pieces. It's really cool."

Because of these messy materials, Broadway in Tucson advises that people who attend wear "casual attire" such as sneakers and jeans to the show.

Blue Man Group shows are appropriate for all ages and the fact that the group doesn't talk at all throughout the show makes it so that anyone can understands what's going on.

"This is a show you have to experience live," Divetta said. "You can't go off of video or things that you've heard. You have to experience it live to really get the full effect of it."

The show opens April 23 and the last performance is on April 28. Tickets range from $29- $69 and can be purchased here.
