CIRQUE DU SOLEIL AND BLUE MAN GROUP PERFORM ON ICE DURING TWO INTERMISSION PERFORMANCES AT VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS GAME, DEC. 22
On Saturday, Dec. 22, Cirque du Soleil and Blue Man Group will bring their imaginative acts to the T-Mobile Arena as they perform on ice during two intermission breaks at the Vegas Golden Knights game against the Montreal Canadiens. Before the intermission performances and to mark the start of the game, audience members can enjoy the Canadian National Anthem serenaded by Rochelle Collins, regularly seen on stage at KÀ at MGM Grand.
During the first intermission, 25 cast members of the fan-favorite resident show KÀ, will dazzle the audience as they rappel from the ceiling cascading to the ice. Drawing inspiration from KÀ’s theme, a theatric battle will take place between the imperial court and the chief archer and his spearmen when the court’s festivities are interrupted.
For the second intermission performance, Blue Man Group will awe audience members with a one-of-a-kind musical performance of Creature Feature, an exclusive piece found only in their Las Vegas production. Featuring electrifying sounds made with unexpected instruments, like the Percussipedes and the Chimeulum, Creature Feature will conclude with a unique tribal drumming experience that only the Blue Men can create.
To begin the day with a full-service Cirque du Soleil experience, those attending the game can enjoy KÀ and Blue Man Group virtual reality experiences on the plaza ahead of the game and pose for photos with interactive billboards as a backdrop.
