The Gallo Center is Ready to Rock

21520-BMP-Drumbone-image-5Blue Man Group

There’s a good chance you’ve heard about the Blue Man Group before— they make themselves impossible to miss! This rock concert, comedy, dance party is one you don’t want to miss, especially if you’ve never seen the Blue Man Group before. Their blend of music, comedy, and technology is dynamic and perfect for any age.

Founded by Matt Goldman, Phil Stanton, and Chris Wink, three partners who strove for lives of meaning and purpose, Blue Man Group initially raised eyebrows with their “Blue Man” character. In spite of this, they went on to inspire audiences in 15 countries and have been seen by more than 35 million people worldwide.

The spirited trio is constantly refreshing their repertoire with new music, stories, instruments, and technology. Don’t you want to see what they have up their sleeve for this year? Other than blue paint, of course.

Once upon a time, four of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s biggest stars came together for one high voltage performance organized by the Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Sam Phillips. Those stars were none other than Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. That night in the recording studio has been immortalized by the Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical and features 21 timeless hits including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “I Walk the Line,” “Hound Dog,” and more.

That cold December night in 1956 saw four young and gifted musicians at the Sun Records in Memphis for the greatest jam session in history— and Million Dollar Quartet aims to bring that night to life. If you’re a fan of Rock ‘n’ Roll, you can’t miss this brilliant Broadway experience, here for two nights only.
