Ever since their first commercials propelling
them onto the national stage more than a decade
ago, the Blue Man Group has become one of the
hottest sensations of the western world. They
give regular performances in cities around the
continent and they are even well-regarded in
Europe , something that is rare for a group that
is primarily in the area of production shows.
With all of this in mind it is perhaps no
surprise that the Blue Man Group has become so
popular in Las Vegas .
The Blue Man Group performs in a theatre located
in The Venetian. The Venetian is one of the
major resort destinations in Las Vegas and is
located on the Las Vegas Strip. This is the most
important strip of land in the entire city and
for that reason seeing a performance of the
group will also put you within walking distance
of just about everything else worth doing in the
city of Las Vegas. In other words, the location
is absolutely fantastic.
The Blue Man Group does perform on a regular
schedule that for the most part is also fixed.
They have at least one performance everyday on
this regular schedule, although there are days
that are dark for tours or special occasions.
Barring those types of circumstances however, a
typical week will see the Blue Man Group perform
at 7:00 in the evening on Sundays, Tuesdays and
Thursdays and at 7:00 and 10:00 in the evening
on the other four days of the week.
There are three different major zones of seating
in the theatre. The green zone is the cheapest
at $71.50 per ticket, although the seats are the
worst in the theatre. The red zone is slightly
better with tickets valued at $91.85 and the
blue zone is the best regular seating in the
theatre with ticket values of $132.00.
The Blue Man Group
is of course very well known, but just in case
you're not sure who or what they are, consider
yourself in for a real treat if you buy tickets
to one of their shows. They are a musical group
that delights in creating music out of
percussion instruments that you wouldn't
normally consider musical. Things like pipes and
telescoping cylinders become the highlight
instruments of the performance as the Blue Man
Group creates startling melody after startling
melody in their quest to come up with the
perfect percussive song. Every performance is
just a little bit different because of that, but
they are all worth seeing.
The main criticism that can be levied at this
particular Las Vegas show is that it lacks an
ultra-cheap ticket option. This is partially
because even the worst seats in the theatre are
not really that bad, but it is something that
hurts it with economical tourists that want to
visit Las Vegas as cheaply as possible. If you
have the money to afford the tickets however,
the show is most definitely worth the price of
