The show features brand new songs, a completely new set and environment for the Blue Men, never-before-seen instruments and audience interaction alongside iconic and beloved BLUE MAN GROUP moments. The result is a new show that remains steeped in collective joy, creation, music, humor, and connection.

  • Audiences can look forward to newly constructed and remastered instruments including:
    • The Tonemill: a rotating wheel of plastic tubes the Blue Men play with boom whackers to make sounds. Inspired by a child’s pinwheel, originally sketched on a napkin, the Tonemill has a mesmerizing effect when played and will be used in a brand-new piece in the North American Tour called “Galaxymaker.”
  • Original new songs and scenes include:
    • “Data Collection”: a new song that integrates live-captured audience samples and transforms them into a music.
    • “Signal to Noise”: a Blue Man social dance, inspired by their playing and the audience.
    • “Face-not-a-Face”: a scene that plays on contemporary facial recognition software.
