The Blue Man Group is officially ending its 14-year run at Universal Orlando.

The group announced their departure on Twitter Monday, adding that they intend to reopen safely at some point in Las Vegas, New York, Chicago and Boston. The trio of bald, blue-painted men hadn’t performed in Orlando since last March when Universal Orlando and other Florida theme parks closed because of the coronavirus pandemic. The shows usually feature a mix of art, light, and music.

“For more than a decade, Blue Man Group has offered our guests their unique style of entertainment – and we are grateful for the chance to have their Orlando show at home,” Universal Orlando said in a statement.

The Blue Man Group had staged more than 6,000 shows in a 1,000-seat theater in Universal CityWalk, an entertainment and retail district adjacent to Universal Orlando theme parks.

Universal Orlando did not say what the space would be used for next.
