Blue Man Group & Virgin Entertainment Create a DVD 5.1 Surround Sound Listening Booth

The booth is eight feet tall and seven feet wide and resembles a giant PVC tube, like those Blue Man Group uses in their hit shows. The booth makes its debut in the Virgin Megastore, Las Vegas in the Caesar’s Forum Shops. Current plans are for the booth to remain in Las Vegas store for six months.
The booth will be unveiled Thursday, December 5, 2002 with a press event at 4:00 p.m. at the Virgin Megastore at Caesar’s Forum. The Blue Man Group will unveil the booth.

The overall look of the booth parallels Blue Man’s world of tubes, black lights and modern art. Its design allows the listeners to experience DVD 5.1 surround sound technology from the “sweet spot” of the listening area — perfectly positioned in the middle of the booth where the listener can experience the sound and feel of every element of the recording.

The combination of the booth design and the sound system provided by Bose creates an intimate surround sound experience. In addition to Blue Man Group’s surround sound mix of AUDIO, a plasma TV screen will showcase slides from Blue Man Group’s Las Vegas show, Blue Man Group–Live At Luxor.
