FOX 32's Jake Hamilton gets messy with the Blue Man Group ahead of their first show in Chicago since March 2020.

After wrapping up its first entirely online-only edition this week – EXPO CHGO Online – EXPO CHICAGO today announced the dates for its next in-person edition at Navy Pier for April 7 – 10, 2022. April will host the fair for the foreseeable future as well, returning to a time of year that hosted international art exhibitions like Art Chicago for decades. 

CHICAGO - There’s nothing to be blue about because the iconic Blue Man Group is returning to Chicago. The hilarious, unique and talented group haven’t taken to the stage at Chicago’s Briar Street Theatre since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but are now gearing up to returning with a newly revamped show.


While the Blue Man Group show is celebrating it’s 30th anniversary this year, next year will mark their 25th anniversary of performing here in Chicago.


For those unfamiliar with the show, audience members often find themselves a part of the festivities and sometimes even covered in paint.

FOX 32 Entertainment Reporter Jake Hamilton got a experience a little of that unique "Blue Man Group interaction" Tuesday on Good Day Chicago.
