^I know what you mean. I caught BMG's New York show years ago and thought it was fun, and it was still unique.

But now they're becoming as ubiquitous as Outback Steakhouse.

I don't know I find each announcement to be just a little more exciting then the last. :?r

Obviously my school computer found it so exciting it decided to quote me twice.

^Hey, I like Outback, too. It's just that there are so many of them. I'll probably catch BMG's Orlando act at some point, myself. ;)

Like I said, their shows are fun. But their "specialness" is wearing off.

^A few days ago they had to work as they were on tour for the How to be a Megastar 2.0 Tour... They were here in Orlando two weeks ago...

Actually, I wondered the same.I wonder how many "Blue Men" there really are.Anyways,I'm pretty excited they're coming to Orlando.I think the theatre will be a good addition to CityWalk.

As a massive fan of the Blue Men, I am excited of a brand new, specially designed place for them. It looks great so far. I can understand how the amount of new shows make them less "special", but each show, the tour, and the albums are all a little bit different from the other. So they're all a unique experiences. However, with Orlando becoming the eleventh stage venue, I can see how it's a little bit of overkill.

I hope no one takes this as thread hijacking as I am just giving an update from today. Work has continued on the exterior of the theater and painting is well under way. The pictures on the front look very cool and the two visible sides of the studio have been getting the Blue Man treatment though I believe the third side may get a blue base paint before the show opening.

From the Hard Rock side of the entryway, the Blue Man Group theater is really starting to shape up...

Its hard to believe that these studios used to host Nickelodeon shows...

Very cool!

From the theater side of the entry way the new light posts with posters can be seen as the lights within them are ready to be installed.

They will be ready... Will you?

The side is looking good too with the famous paint-can splash being applied to the wall.

One last sign of the former Slime-green that used to cover this studio is found on the column with the main poster on it...

We will be watching you...
