Blue Man Group Gear Up For Megastar Tour 2.0

ST. LOUIS, MO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Continually pushing the boundaries of the live concert experience, Blue Man Group has announced the first leg of confirmed dates for "How To Be A Megastar Tour 2.0, which is set to launch September 26th in Reading, PA.

Emery Entertainment joins forces with Pacific Arts Entertainment as Executive Producers of the tour, which initially kicks off with 42 cities through 2006 and continues in the first quarter of 2007.

This full-production U.S. and Canadian tour, featuring state-of-the-art concert technology, will bring the Blue Man Group experience to arena-size venues and select theaters in cities coast-to-coast, including Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Houston, Dallas, St. Louis, Denver, San Jose, San Diego, Anaheim and more.

Describing the tour, Executive Tour Producer Paul J. Emery, III of Emery Entertainment said, “After downloading a tongue-in-cheek ‘how-to-manual’ on becoming a rock star, Blue Man Group is joined by an eight piece band and subsequently takes us through, step-by-step and song-by-song, every head-bobbing, fist-pumping moment of a real concert.”

Emery added, “The result is a uniquely clever interactive show that delivers hypnotic entertainment for all ages!”
