Talk About Tuesday - Blue Man Group

Sunday we drove into Wichita to see the Blue Man Group at the Kansas Coliseum. It was a fantastic show!! Much better than I had expected.

They had an opening act, Mike Relm, who was great himself. I don't quite know how to explain what he does. He does things with sounds and video and choreographs them together, which changes them into something else. Does that make sense?

These blue men, who are actually blue, can play the drums on any type of contraption and make it sound awesome!

These drums were awesome, that is water spraying up as he is drumming....

This show had a lot of audience participation to it, with words on the screens telling people what to do, and the blue men really catering to the audience and getting them involved. The people in this next picture actually were part of the audience, and got pulled up on the stage to participate in some weirdness. That is a huge gob of marshmallows on her head, by the way :)

Its like there was a comedy act in the middle of all the music....

All in all, it was a great show for people of all ages, the group sitting next to me had a three or four year old, and she just loved it, laughing through the whole show. Leanna, who is 16, had a great time also.

This is the guitarist, I just put this photo up because it turned out well :)

The only issue I have is the price of the concessions and souvenirs once you get there. A regular size bag of M&Ms cost $3.00!! and so did a bottle of water. It was crazy! The program for the show, you know we had to get one of them, was $15.00! I almost said no because of the price, but we get one from every event we attend and it was a pretty cool little book. The DVDs were $30.00 so I said no way to that.
