Cape Town – Big Concerts announced on Friday that Blue Man Group will be coming to South Africa in 2017. (Get the scoop here.)

The group is comedy, theatre, rock concert and dance party all rolled into one. To date, over 35 million people in more than 15 countries have seen one of the various Blue Man Group productions.

The new World Tour showcases classic Blue Man favourites along with brand new content as they continually update and refresh their shows with new music, fresh stories, custom instruments and state-of-the-art technology.

CEO of Big Concerts, Justin Van Wyk said: "Blue Man Group is hugely popular around the world – first time audiences often leave the theatre so exhilarated by the show that it has one of the highest return businesses of any theatrical event. We know it will be the talk of Johannesburg and Cape Town when audiences finally get to experience this innovative, playful and colourful spectacle."

Channel24 flew to Singapore to meet the group.
