High energy Blue Man Group coming to Okanagan

The world-renowned Blue Man Group is bringing their show to Penticton as part of their World Tour

Blending art, technology, music and comedy for a quarter century, the world-renowned Blue Man Group is bringing their magic to the South Okanagan Events Centre.

The award-winning stage production, known for its trio of bald and blue performers, is performing two shows, on April 23 and 24 as part of their world tour.

The world tour showcases classic Blue Man favourites along with brand new content featuring new music, fresh stories, custom instruments and sensory-stimulating graphics.

“We are so excited to announce Penticton as the next stop on Blue Man Group’s world tour,” said Benoit Mathieu, Executive managing director in a news release announcing the shows. “Since the recent acquisition by Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group, Blue Man Group has expanded its creative power and global distribution opportunities, enabling us to deliver the show to new audiences around the world. We are so honoured to be able to share our show with the people of Canada and beyond.

“With no language barrier to overcome, as the Blue Men don’t speak, fans of all ages, cultures and nationalities can enjoy the experience.”

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 world tours, reaching more than 35 million people worldwide.
