NEWS: Blue Man Group Brings Its Award-Winning Bluevolution World Tour To The UK For The First Time


AEG Artistic Presents is thrilled to announce that Blue Man Group’s Bluevolution World Tour will be returning to the UK in 2024. The wildly popular global sensation performs at Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre for the first time from 9 – 13 October. The group will also make its long-awaited return to London after 15 years away performing at the iconic Palladium Theatre from September 25 – 29 2024. The tour also includes residencies in Birmingham from 17 – 21 September 2024, Salford from 2 – 6 October 2024, and Bristol from 16 – 20 October 2024.

 

Blue Man Group at the Festival Theatre Edinburgh is available for priority booking for Friends of Capital Theatres from Monday 4 December 10am, with general public sale opening on Friday 8 December 10am. Tickets will be available from www.capitaltheatres.com.


At Blue Man Group, audiences of all ages will rock, laugh and party as three bald and blue characters explore the world and discover music, comedy and surprises at every turn.


Blue Man Group’s Bluevolution World Tour will showcase classic Blue Man favourites in a music extravaganza from explosive paint drumming, comedy antics and unforgettable audience interaction along with brand new content, including the addition of a new female character exclusive to the current World Tour. In addition to the three Blue Men, the World Tour’s new character called “The Rockstar” replaces the traditional band as a multi-instrumentalist, with her eccentric style combined with her dynamic musical stylings complementing the multi-sensory nature of the show.


Created in 1991 by Chris Wink, Phil Stanton, and Matt Goldman, Blue Man Group has evolved into one of the most successful and recognisable stage shows, reaching 50 million people worldwide, picking up countless accolades and awards, as well as becoming part of the pop culture zeitgeist with appearances across shows from the Royal Variety Performance to Arrested Development to The Tonight Show. Co-founder Chris Wink says, “When we first began creating performances centered on this innocent, curious character called Blue Man, we never dreamt where he would lead us. We are so honored to be able to share our show with the people of the UK and beyond. With no language barrier to overcome, as the Blue Men don’t speak, fans of all ages, cultures and nationalities can enjoy the experience.”


 

CAPITAL THEATRES 

Capital Theatres presents world-class shows to entertain and inspire audiences of all ages.  

 

The three venues we manage include two of Scotland’s largest, oldest, and most respected theatres: Festival Theatre (1,915 seats), King’s Theatre (1,100 seats, currently closed for a major redevelopment until Summer 2025) and The Studio (155 seats).   

 

Together they host over 700 performances each year with a broad and inclusive programme featuring the very best in drama, dance, musical theatre, family shows, live music, comedy, and pantomime.   

 

We are a receiving house which means we work with producers across the UK to programme their work. We also commission and co-produce a select number of productions of our own each year. Much of our programme is exclusive to our venues in Scotland, providing the only opportunity for audiences to see the biggest shows touring north of the border, the best in international contemporary dance and the latest productions from leading local and national companies.  We are also the home of Edinburgh’s largest community companies, providing them with a platform each year to share their work.   

  

As Scotland’s largest theatre charity, we support access to the arts for everyone and have an extensive Creative Engagement programme of talks, workshops and events to introduce and develop participation and interest in the heritage of our buildings and all areas of live performance. We have an extensive artist development programme; Open@TheStudio and have just won the UK Theatre 2023 Award for Excellence in Inclusivity for our work with people living with Dementia.
