I'm Seeing Blue

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?

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.

Fun! Good for you guys. I have been wanting to see them in Chicago but Joe seems to be anti-Blue Man Group. I'll get him there eventually!

The show really is worth seeing...especially if you like percussion. The music is kind of technoish.

That's great! I've always been intrigued by them. BTW - your hair looks cute in that picture of both of you at the show. :-)

Tiffany said...

Thanks, Jeni! I only curl it every once in a while since it takes 20 min to do.

I had always been intrigued by the BMG also. However, I saw Stomp in college and I thought they were better.

We love the BMG. We've seen them twice in Vegas (the only real reason to go there) and once on their tour. i hope I get to see them next week in Orlando.

Sorry you weren't feeling well. That would take a lot of fun out of it.

Glad you had a chance to do something fun. :)

Sorry to hear you had an upset stomach. Hope you're feeling better now!!

I've heard great things about this group but men painted blue just doesn't appeal to me. Glad to hear that you had a wonderful time!

Andrew said...

It was AWESOME! I'd definitely go again, and would recommend the show to anyone if they were near-by.
