Blue Man Group Joins MAACO Bowl Las Vegas Lineup

Both Teams To Attend New Show at Monte Carlo Resort During Bowl Week


LAS VEGAS - Always a highlight of MAACO Bowl Las Vegas' week of events, this year's participating teams will attend Las Vegas Show Night at a performance of Blue Man Group at Monte Carlo Resort, organizers announced Monday.

The travel parties from both Boise State University and the University of Washington will enjoy the 7 p.m. performance Thursday, Dec. 20. While in Las Vegas, fans attending the bowl game can save 25 percent on tickets to the show by visiting the Blue Man Group box office or by calling (877) 459-0268 and simply mentioning ''MAACO Bowl'' before ordering. Performances take place nightly with a procession of percussion on the hotel floor 45 minutes prior to the first show.

Blue Man Group has turbo-charged its newest show in Las Vegas with electrifying music, sensational technology and innovative new ways of interacting with the audience. The new, mega-enhanced show is a thrilling, energy-infused experience that introduces wildly inventive musical instruments, a humorous look at robots and creativity and a mind-blowing (literally) tour inside the neural network of the human brain.

Each night the Blue Men deliver an extraordinary spectacle as well as a soulful and primal kind of euphoric experience that makes guests feel vibrantly alive and more closely connected with the people nearby.
