A Brief (and Probably Not Too Accurate) History

Let’s rewind a bit. The Blue Man Group began as a trio of bald, blue men in 1987 in New York City. These fellas decided the world needed more percussion, less conversation, and a lot of PVC piping. Their unique blend of music, comedy, and multimedia theatrics quickly took off, making them the international sensations they are today. With their shiny, blue heads and mysterious silence, they’ve managed to communicate universal themes and absurdities without uttering a single word. How’s that for efficiency?

Legend has it that they were born out of a failed Smurf cloning experiment. Of course, this isn’t true, but wouldn’t it be awesome if it were? In reality, the original founders, Chris Wink, Matt Goldman, and Phil Stanton, just thought it would be cool to paint themselves blue and make some noise. And boy, were they right!

Medellin, Prepare to Get Blue!

Fast forward to 2024, and these azure entertainers are taking their act to Medellin this August. Picture it: the city of eternal spring will echo with the sounds of thundering drums, quirky instruments, and perhaps a splash (or a gallon) of blue paint. Whether you’re a local or just visiting, this is the kind of event that makes you rethink everything you thought you knew about entertainment—and maybe also the color blue.
