Editorial Reviews

After playing to capacity crowds throughout 2006 and 2007, Blue Man Group's How to Be a Megastar
Tour hits the road again in 2008. The live rock show takes the audience through a satirical workshop
on how to create the perfect rock concert experience. In the process, they celebrate, skewer and
otherwise deconstruct rock stardom in all of its narcissistic glory. Expanding on the Rock Concert
Manual concept from The Complex Rock Tour, this time around the Blue Men download a new how-to
manual that takes the audience through a uniquely clever and interactive show that guarantees to
deliver hypnotic entertainment for all ages. CD/DVD of Blue Man Group's live concert that is currently touring the world. It will feature a live
concert on DVD, a distilled version of that show on CD as well as the documentary Inside The Tube
and the video I Feel Love as bonus features. Packaging will be in a DigiPak.

The Blue Man Group return to their rock concert experience in their latest DVD, captured during their "How to Be a Megastar 2.0" tour. If you already own "The Complex" much of this material will be familiar as it nearly the same format as the group's previous rock concert tour. That's not necessarily a bad thing. As in "The Complex," "How to Be a Megastar" opens with "Above," which if you've seen/heard from "The Complex" you know is simply an amazing song. The concert presentation is exciting, with a screen obscuring the stage and only shadows of the Blue Men projected on the screen as, one by one, each takes to their PVC instruments to begin the melody, with a swirling of images of the band and the Blue Men as the song launches into guitar, drums, keyboards, bass, and percussion in an explosive cresendo. Awesome. The remainder of "How to Be a Megastar" essentially follows the same progression as "The Complex" with some new material and new rock conert movements. The premise of the tour is the Blue Men have purchased an "updated" rock concert experience manual from an infomercial and are incoporating the new material into the show. The band is amazing, as it was before in "The Complex." I miss the guest vocals of Tracy Bonham and Annette Strean of Venus Hum. Annette was gorgeous and belted out an exciting cover of "I Feel Love" in her unique style in "The Complex" and is replaced on the current tour with a new vocalist. She's fine, but it's hard to follow in the footsteps of Annette and Tracy.

Bonus material includes a music video for "I Feel Love"; a piece of comedy called "Mono Makes a Plea -- Save the TVs" campaign (bemoaning the switch to digital signals which will effect us all...) and finally, and perhaps most importantly, a documentary called "Inside the Tube.

When Blue Man Group created a touring rock concert with The Complex, they recorded and released a DVD. It was, at best, a tease to get you to see the stage shows, since the tour ended about the same time. The DVD was horribly flawed. It wasn't mastered correctly as anamorphic widescreen, but rather it was letterboxed. The audio mix was questionable. There were visible compression artifacts. The exposure during dark parts of the show was poor, and they tried to compensate with bad video effects. The editing was terrible too, with visuals not matching audio, and countless shots of a lame crowd. This new DVD corrects all of that.

When the How To Be A Megastar tour launched three years later, the show had been heavily tweaked. Through five legs of the tour, changes were made at least three times, and various performers came and went. The last iteration of the tour is what's represented on this DVD (and CD), and it's easily the tightest version of it.

Almost the entire show is represented, with a lively crowd and a great performance by the excellent band. The arena experience is captured with a lot of great wide shots, including a camera in the "crappy seats," to give you an idea of how "big" the show feels. The scope is much bigger than the fixed theatrical shows, though many of the same comedic bits are shared.

The video clips for the "Megastar" manual are included here, played by Fred Armisen of Saturday Night Live fame, as well as the Floppie the Banjo Clown clips.

Peter Moore is the male vocalist for the show. He sang on several of the recorded tracks for The Complex, and on the original tour. The guy is all-pro and has a bit of a rockstar quality. He left the tour shortly after this show to pursue a solo record.

I have seen the Blue Man Group in Vegas, Chicago and Slat Lake City on a concert tour. The Vegas show was the best when I saw it. It is now shown in a different casino now so it may have changed. I don't care much for the concert tour format, which is what this DVD is. I also don't like "live recordings" with audience noise and prefer live attendance more.

I loved the music and the theatrical aspect most which is what made them famous with the special effects and funny skits.

I watched this DVD once and may never watch it again.

I have seen the Blue Men live once in Chicago, and I always thought they were fun to watch, something the kids would love. I'd like to take them to the theater, but prices have doubled since then, they're $100 each, so this is a passable alternative to being there, especially if you have a large HDTV and a decent surround system. I don't think we will watch it often, so I might put it back in the market after a couple of spins.

This was one of the surprise musical/comedy experiences of my life. I'd never heard of BMG (they are only now performing in Australia for the first time) but I absolutely loved the concept of these three innocents trying to make sense of their 'new' world accompanied by the most overblown rock band ever!

Unfortunately the content (but filmed at different concerts) of 'Complex Rock Tour' and 'How To Be A Megastar' is predominantly identical; maddeningly, one has elements that the other has, and vice-versa. So if you're obsessive, buy both; if not, flip a coin, then wait for some truly new material from these amazing talents.
