Rock and Blues


Sure, aspiring performers aiming for the top of the charts can always mangle Barry Manilow tunes before a panel of judges and a national audience of millions. But where's the originality in that? Forget the reality-TV teachings of American Idol, Rock Star: Supernova and Making the Band; pop royalty-in-waiting only need to follow the wisdom of the Blue Man Group. These smooth-headed, cobalt-covered internationally acclaimed performers (and their eight-piece band!) present the "How to Be a Megastar Tour 2.0" tonight at 8 p.m. at the Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue) — in all of the show's percussion-happy, multimedia-manipulating glory. Mothers, hide your Spin Art Machines; fathers, keep your giant tubes indoors: The Blue Men aim to refine the art of arena rock, no matter how many ruined audience ponchos it takes. Tickets run from $41.50 to $87 and are available by calling Ticketmaster at 314-241-1888; visit for additional information.
