MGM Resorts Japan has announced that it will bring popular US performance troupe Blue Man Group to Japan for an extensive tour this year.
Blue Man Group has successfully performed in front of record audience numbers totaling over 35 million guests in over 25 countries throughout the world. MGM and Blue Man have a long-standing partnership, including a permanent theater for the show at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. It is especially popular among the family demographic.
Last July, when MGM Resorts Japan participated in the Tenjin Festival in Osaka, Blue Man Group also attended and gave a special performance on a Hohai boat during the river procession at the festival.
Back in 2007 there was a dedicated Blue Man theater in the Roppongi area of Tokyo, but this is the first time the group’s upgraded “World Tour” will head to Japan.
Jason P. Hyland, President and Representative Officer of MGM Japan, said, “We are wondering what the future of entertainment is; what will enthrall the audience? I am excited to say that I think you will be inspired as you find the answer to that question in this performance.”
Blue Man Group will perform from 1 May to 2 June 2019 in Tokyo’s Roppongi, from 5 to 9 June at Aichi Prefectural Art Theater in Osaka and from 12 to 16 June at Orix Theatre in Osaka.
