Blue Man Group World Tour

28 Dec - 6 Jan

Internationally acclaimed performers BLUE MAN GROUP have announced their first UK shows since 2009 as part of new world tour, with Birmingham being chosen as the host city.

​ ​

The award-winning production, best known for its blue and bald performers, has been brought to the city by Town Hall and Symphony Hall, Birmingham and will run from 28 December to 6 January in ICC Hall One.

Famed for their ability to transcend age, culture and language barriers, BLUE MAN GROUP performances mix art, music, comedy and state-of- the-art technology to create a sublime celebration of human connection. A joyful, unforgettable, multi-sensory experience, BLUE MAN GROUP has captivated more than 35 million spectators worldwide.


Nick Reed, Chief Executive Officer of Town Hall and Symphony Hall said:

It’s fantastic that we’ve been successful in bringing such a globally-renowned brand to Birmingham and these shows will once again cement the city’s place as world-class cultural centre. We were drawn to the vivid, celebratory nature of the show, which appeals to spectators of all ages and backgrounds. This is the first time in years that BLUE MAN GROUP will be on UK shores and it’s great to offer fans the chance to see these outstanding performers in action.


BLUE MAN GROUP Co-founder Chris Wink said:

When we first began creating performances centred on this innocent, curious character called Blue Man, we never dreamt where he would lead us. We are so honoured to be able to share our show with the people of Birmingham and beyond.

BLUE MAN GROUP Co-founder Phil Stanton added:

Perhaps because we’ve always been interested in exploring our collective need for human connection, the Blue Man character seems to speak to so many people from all ages, cultures, nationalities. We believe the Blue Man’s universal message of joyful exuberance and euphoric celebration resonates within all of us.

Emma Gray, Director of Marketing and Communications at Visit Birmingham – the city’s official leisure tourism programme, added: 

The energy, creativity and artistic strengths of Birmingham are unparalleled, with a diverse range of major arts and cultural institutions all based here. BLUE MAN GROUP becoming the latest world-renowned performers to take to the Town Hall and Symphony Hall stage, is testament to the leading, vibrant cultural hub the city has become. This promises to be a truly world-class show.


Founded by three close friends Chris Wink, Matt Goldman and Phil Stanton in New York City in 1991, BLUE MAN GROUP has since grown to include permanent shows in New York, Las Vegas, Boston, Chicago, Orlando and Berlin, as well as a World Tour. Birmingham will be the first UK city to host BLUE MAN GROUP since 2009.
