The Strip got a little more colorful when the new Blue Man Group performance claimed stake at the Monte Carlo Las Vegas. This show has all of the elements you would expect from the multinational and insanely successful Blue Man Group Company, but they’ve amped up the percussion event, adding more audience interactive elements, a slew of robots included the new Showbot character, an examination of the human brain, smoking drums, and a nightly procession bursting out the theater with ultra luminescence and musical delight.  Blue Man Group ingeniously combines innovative technology, heart-thumping music and well executed humor to create one grand performance. guarantees tickets to Blue Man Group at the Monte Carlo are a one-of-a-kind experience.

As the show begins, Blue Man Group will take you through a journey of discovery from a robot assembly-line to a mad scientist exploring the human brain!  Percussionists bang on giant smoke-emitting “Brain Drums” suspended high above the audience, and the pinnacle of the show is when Blue Man Group play the “Neuronulum”, a brand new pipe-instrument that will send your neurological senses into a tailspin. You’ll also see all the classic paint flying Blue Man Group fun that always turns the show into a party.

Airline Scam Alert

Scam Alert:  Airline name being used for fake ticketsscam alert

If you receive a letter claiming you’ve won two round-trip tickets anywhere in the continental US  and they have been trying to contact you, please do not call them.  This is a phishing scam and they are attempting to get your personal information.  The letter may state they are from American (not an actual airline), American Airlines, US Airlines (not an actual airline), or United.

I just receive one of their letters yesterday and decided to look into it because it seemed a little too good to be true.

The Scam in Action:

Consumers receive the letter either by fax or through the mail. The letters have no return address and may contain a legit logo. Most of the letters appear to come from Phoenix, Arizona. The message typically reads as follows:

NOTE: You must respond no later than XXXX.

Dear XXXX,

I am pleased to inform you that you have qualified for an award of 2 roundtrip airline tickets. Congratulations. These tickets are valid for travel anywhere in the Continental U.S. from any major international airport. The retail value of this award is up to $1,298.00. Certain restrictions apply. We have attempted contacting you several times without success. This is our last attempt. If we do not hear from you soon, we may need to issue the ticket vouchers to the alternate.

Please call me today at 1-866-546-1767.

Vice President

What to do about it:

If you receive a letter such as this and are questioning it’s legitimacy, reach out to your local BBB or directly to the Airline it is stating to be. Don’t call the number on the letter.  They already have your name and address and if you call them they will also have your phone number.  Whatever you do, don’t give out personal information.
