Blue Man Group Now Open at Luxor Hotel and Casino
Award-winning show at the custom-built Blue Man Theater features new music, new finale and more
LAS VEGAS (November 18, 2015) – Opening today, Blue Man Group returns to Luxor Hotel and Casino, inside the new, custom-built Blue Man Theater, with new music, creative design, innovative technology and a re-imagined finale.
Designed to bring the audience closer together than ever before, Blue Man Group brings its euphoric celebration of life in full color alive inside the re-designed Blue Man Theater.
"We have a strong affection for Luxor and are thrilled to return to this one-of-a-kind property," said Phil Stanton, Blue Man Group co-founder. "We always embrace the opportunity to update and re-imagine our show. At Luxor, we have the ideal theater perfect for a completely immersive, multi-sensory experience. We brought the intimacy of our New York City show and the spectacle of Las Vegas to our new home at Luxor to create the perfect exhilarating celebration.”
The lobby and Blue Man Group store have also been revamped to include an interactive video wall, new custom wallpaper that takes fans on a journey through Blue Man Group history, a cutout logo wall and a custom soundtrack for guests to enjoy before stepping into the one-of-a-kind theater.
Blue Man Group’s performance in the intimate space allows the bald and blue performers to directly connect with each individual. The group’s creative forces have produced an amplified show that combines the performance of signature Blue Man favorites with a playful look at current cultural trends including walking and texting and the selfie obsession. Backing the blue trio, a five-piece band is perched in two custom-built lofts suspended between an oversized video board offering dazzling visuals. A dynamic and magical finale caps off the indescribable celebration and creates a euphoric atmosphere that leaves the audience in a state of awe.

The 75-minute backstage tour is available prior to the first performance of the night where guests will enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at the group’s wildly inventive instruments, props and the nightly sound check.
