It looks like April is shaping up to be a month of international entertainment, with the announcement that the barrier-breaking Blue Man Group will perform at the du Forum from April 18 to 22, as part of the troupe’s world tour.

The three-man performance group is known for its outrageous theatrics that combine comedy, art, dance and music. While the characters don’t speak at any point during the show, their performance is upbeat, high-energy, full of wit, and unlike anything else you will ever experience. Expect to be bowled over by the audience-interactive design, emotive lighting and multi-sensory technology used throughout.

Formed by three theatre buffs in 1991, the Grammy-nominated Blue Man Group grew from early performances on the streets of Manhattan – dubbed ‘disturbances’ by the three original founders – to a long-running stage show, a residency in Las Vegas, a touring parody rock concert and appearances on the cult comedy television show Arrested Development.

The Abu Dhabi show plans to feature new content as well as old favourites. Here’s hoping the iconic manic paint drumming act still makes the set list.
Starting from Dhs195. April 18-22. du Forum, Yas Island. Tickets available at
