Blue Man Group will unveil a new orchestral concert, featuring collaborations with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, special guests, virtuoso musical pieces and "mayhem on the grandest scale," Sept. 6-7 at 8 PM at the Hollywood Bowl.



The Group will be joined by the Grammy-nominated Brazilian band Monobloco as well as two-time Grammy nominee Tracy Bonham, recording artist Butterscotch, famed Venice Beach Boardwalk performer/artist Harry Perry and internationally acclaimed musicians Natsuki Tamura (didgeridoo), Brian Wolff (tuba), Janeen Rae Heller (musical saw), William Zeitler (glass armonica), Charles Richard Lester (theremin), Arjuna (California throat singer), Ronobir Lahiri (sitar), Sara Leib (scat singer) and the Los Angeles Police Emerald Society Pipes and Drums.

Blue Man Group, press notes state, "will invade the legendary amphitheater, alongside the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, its world-renowned Principal Guest Conductor Thomas Wilkins, and the Blue Man Group band, for a multi-sensory, never-before-experienced show. Combining their iconic style and unique instruments, the blue trio will be joined by the massive (more than 80-piece) Hollywood Bowl Orchestra in exhilarating new arrangements of their own signature melodies, as well as their singular take on some of the classical music world’s best known pieces."

The show will also debut new instruments conceived and designed by Blue Man Group, and the evenings will conclude with a fireworks display, underscored by a new Blue Man composition.

Blue Man Group was founded by Chris Wink, Phil Stanton and Matt Goldman.
