Blue Man Group Show@ Las Vegas About a month ago on 12/22/07, I saw "Blue Man Group" show at Venetian Hotel Casino, Las Vegas, NV from 10 PM. At a discount ticket booth at Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas, I purchased it around $80. It was a half price ($75) plus fees and hotel taxes. Our seats were at the 11th row and 4th and 5th from the right isle in the middle section. We had a choice of 7 PM and 10 PM shows, and we selected 10 PM show.
As we passed through the hallway to the theatre, we saw six famous paintings. As we looked carefully, three Blue men were in all of the paintings. As we passed through, the blue men got bigger. I took photos and uploaded below.
At the entrance of the theatre seating area, there were tons of disposable ear plugs. We grabed about 4 each of the ear plugs for in case. The people seating the front six rows were wearing clear plastic ponchos.
The show kicked off with drum beating sounds. Three Blue men were hitting three drums on the stage. A cage containing three drummers with full set rock drums came down from the left side roof of the stage. A cage containing a rock band with 4 players (a drummer, a lead guitar, a base guitar, and a keyboardist) came down from the right side roof of the stage. In total there were 7 drummers, beating drums so loud. The speakers were set at high volume. I placed ear plugs on both sides and covered both ears with my hands. Still it was noisy. The first 7 minutes of the show and two more times, 5 minute each in the middle, they played loud drum beating sounds. For people who cannot bear loud drum sounds or those who have heart problems should reconsider before watching this show.
There is no talking during the show but lots of comedy stants and live actions were performed by three Blue men. Two audiences inter-acted with three Blue men and played on the stage. One lady and a young man. I believe they were pre-selected from the audience.
This Blue Man Group show started in New York. They play in Chicago, Las Vegas, other cities. They started to play in Los Angeles from this month. They started shows in Tokyo last month as well. This show is getting quite popular and the show ticket price has been increasing so much. But for me I think this one time experience was enough. Many people love this show and become repeaters, though.
