The popular award-winning production Blue Man Group comes to Abbotsford Centre on Monday, April 4 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, Feb. 5 at 10 a.m.

Blue Man Group is comedy, theatre, a rock concert and a dance party all rolled into one. The theatrical tour showcases classic Blue Man favorites, along with brand new content.

Now approaching their 25th year of creativity, this artistic group is continually updating and refreshing Blue Man shows with new music, fresh stories, custom instruments and state-of-the-art technology.

“We live in a fast-paced, ever-evolving world. The Blue Man character is a curious being who explores our cultural norms, our every-day objects, but he sees them with fresh eyes and an innocent perspective,” said Phil Stanton, co-founder of Blue Man Group.

“As the world around us changes, we are constantly inspired to create new scenarios for the Blue Man to explore.”

Co-founder Chris Wink said the mission of every Blue Man Group show is “to bring the collective audience together with the Blue Men for a euphoric celebration, a heightened state of being alive.”

The trademark of every show is a combination of visually stunning multi-media and a multi-sensory performance. The Blue Men are accompanied by a live band whose haunting tribal rhythms help drive the show to its unforgettable climax.

For the founders of Blue Man Group, the universal appeal is based on our shared human DNA.

“We say that no matter how high-tech things get, there’s still something human there. We’ll always need others, always need to collaborate. People still need to come together and look each other in the eye,” Stanton said.

“Through the Blue Man’s connection with the audience, we hope to encourage this human-to-human interaction, while helping people reconnect with their own sense of wonder and discovery, with their own sense of what is possible in their lives.”

The show is presented by NETworks Presentations, LLC and Blue Man Productions.

Tickets for the Abbotsford show are available at the venue box office, online at ticketmaster.ca or by phone at 855-985-5000.
