This Chicago staple has been entertaining audiences for years; from incredible musical performances to hilarious comedy, Blue Man Group proves to be a mainstay in the Windy City.
Never Before Seen (or Spelled) Instruments
“The Big Drum” may be self-explanatory, but that’s where familiarity among this showcase of newly constructed and remastered instruments ends. From the part deconstructed xylophone, part drum hardware of the trigger vibes, to the spinulum, with its clear plastic disk affixed to a slide guitar-esque, stainless steel neck, these expressive new sounds are as much seen, as they are heard.
Original Music Compositions
When not on stage, the men in blue are Grammy-nominated recording artists with multiple albums to their name. Their latest studio album titled “THREE” features the piece “Vortex,” which will make its theatrical debut in Chicago through the whirling sounds of both PVC pipe and spinulum.
Audience Participation on Another Level
Blue Man Group remains as interested in the audience as the audience is with them. In turn, new interactions will provide visitors the chance to share the stage with these characters like never before. One lucky audience member will rock out as only the performance art troupe knows how – through the playing of yet another new original instrument, the Mag Bells.
