Saturday night, Andrew and I went on a date! That's right~a real date! We started out by going to Chili's for dinner. From there, we headed to Mizzou Arena to see the Blue Man Group concert?...show?...act?
Anyway, we saw the Blue Man Group live. I surprised him with the tickets in his "Easter basket"~really just a plastic basket that I through the tickets into, hid in the house and told him to find. I knew that he had wanted to see them last year when they came to town, but we ended up being in the hospital at that time. I wanted to find a way to thank him for how wonderful he has been over the past year. I mean, when I was completely falling apart, he was a rock for me. So, when I heard the Blue Man Group would be here again this year, I could not pass it up.
Andrew seemed to really enjoy it. I did, too but it was somewhat overshadowed by the fact that my stomach was upset throughout the entire show.
But, really, it was a lot of fun. The percussion was pretty amazing. At times, there were something like 6 percussionists drumming and changing tempo in perfect sinc. I was surprised at how much of a comedy routine they did! They poked fun of what it took to be a rock and roll band and to put on a rock show. They also had a lot of audience participation at times.
While I would probably not personally spend the money to go see them again, I am glad we got to go this time.
