Blue Man Group literally dropped by its new home on Wednesday, as members of the group took a 7,000-foot parachute leap near the Las Vegas Strip to promote the opening of its new show at the Monte Carlo.
The show is scheduled to begin this evening after moving from The Venetian last month. Previously, the blue-painted entertainers enjoyed a strong five-year run at the Luxor, which replaced the group with one-off performances by music acts and later the Cirque du Soleil-Criss Angel partnership, “Believe.”
The Blue Man Group helped start an era of multimedia entertainment on the Strip with a show that features such sights and sounds as members playing drums made of plastic pipe and throwing marshmallows into each others’ mouths from across the stage.
Show officials describe the Monte Carlo show as a combination of science, comedy, music and vibrant visual effects.
