Blue Man Group to perform in Bemidji

The iconic theatrical show, the Blue Man Group, will perform at the Sanford Center in Bemidji on Oct. 27, officials announced Monday.

Tickets for the show go on sale Aug. 30, Sanford Center officials said in a press release. Pre-sale ticket options will start Friday and run through Aug. 29.

The Blue Man Group is best known for featuring three bald and blue characters  who perform in a variety of multimedia formats.

According to the press release, the tour features new content highlighted by classic Blue Man favorites. The new sound, set, and video design centering around a proscenium-sized LED curtain and high-resolution screen create a new, high-impact visual experience, the press release said.

"In order to create a touring version of our theatrical production, we knew we had a creative challenge to tackle,” said Blue Man Group co-founder Philip Stanton in the release. “We needed to find a way to transform theatres of all shapes and sizes into spaces in which the Blue Man can intimately connect with the audience, where the audience can become engaged with the spirit of the show and the Blue Man himself.  We think we have finally figured it out, and hopefully we will accomplish our goal, which is always to help audience members reconnect with their own sense of wonder and discovery, with their own sense of what is possible in their lives."

Tickets for all Sanford Center events may be purchased at the Ford Pickup Windows at the center, any Lueken’s Village Foods Ticketmaster retail location or you can charge by phone at (800) 745-3000 or go online to
