Blue Man Group, the international entertainment phenomenon, teams up with Red Bull to celebrate the launch of its latest electrifying production by skydiving into their new home Monte Carlo Resort and Casino on Wednesday, Oct. 10. Trained by members of the Red Bull Air Force, Blue Man Group will take the daring leap at 7,000-feet high above the property and glide to the earth, landing on Rue De Monte Carlo at 10 a.m.
At 10:15 a.m., Blue Man Group will head inside to the Monte Carlo Theatre to celebrate their move to their new home on the Las Vegas Strip. Their first performance at Monte Carlo will take place later that evening. The blue trio will be joined by founders Chris Wink and Phil Stanton, Monte Carlo General Manager Patrick Miller, Chair of the LVCVA’s Host Committee Oscar Goodman and emcee Cadillac Jack of KCYE – 102.7 The Coyote. During the event, Blue Man Group will flip a switch, illuminating the theatre entrance to signal the official launch of their new show and new home. Following, the group will address the crowd and pose for photos.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend these events. Rue De Monte Carlo will be closed from 9:30 a.m. – 10:15 a.m. as to allow the jumpers to land safely.
Monte Carlo Resort and Casino is located at 3770 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Las Vegas, NV.

Opening at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino on Wednesday, Oct. 10, Blue Man Group offers an experience never seen before. Blue Man Group provides audiences with a fully immersive audiovisual experience. Born of the creative urge to explore the unknown, the show is a combination of science, comedy, music and vibrant visual effects. The explosion of color, humor, music and technology comes to life every night inside the Monte Carlo Theatre. It’s the only show with a “smoking section,” the only show with brains, the only show with balls and the only show that bursts out of the theatre with a nightly procession of musical joy and luminescence.
