Cirque du Soleil acquires entertainment phenomenon Blue Man Group
Thursday, July 06, 2017

Montreal, Quebec, July 6th, 2017. – Global entertainment leader Cirque du Soleil today announced the acquisition of New-York-based Blue Man Productions, a global live entertainment company best known for the award-winning Blue Man Group show, performed in over 20 countries and seen by more than 35 million people worldwide since 1991. The acquisition of Blue Man Group considerably widens Cirque du Soleil’s audience pool, adding to their portfolio six resident productions established across the United States and Germany, as well as a North American and a World Tour. The transaction is in line with Cirque du Soleil’s vision for the future, as the Montreal-based creative powerhouse looks to further expand globally and diversify its entertainment offering beyond circus arts. With its original aesthetics, award-winning musical talent and immersive experience know-how, the acquisition of Blue Man Group also represents an additional asset for Cirque du Soleil’s creative team and show offerings.

“We want to broaden our horizons, develop new forms of entertainment, reach out to new audiences and expand our own creative capabilities. Today, we are taking a decisive step towards materializing these ambitions”, said Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil. “We are extremely excited to welcome the iconic Blue Man Group to our portfolio of shows. Their unbridled creativity makes them a perfect cultural fit for Cirque du Soleil. Our extensive marketing research also confirms that Blue Man Group is a strong ‘love brand’ with a solid fan base – something else our two brands have in common.” For 25 years, Blue Man Group has earned an unrivaled reputation in the global entertainment industry. With a history and values ​​similar to that of Cirque, the company was born of a crazy dream in the creative minds of its three founders. Blending technology, music and comedy, they created boldly colored, playful and steadfastly interactive shows. The company currently operates resident shows in New York, Boston, Las Vegas, Chicago, Orlando and Berlin, as well as two touring productions.

Blue Man Group Co-Founder Phil Stanton explains, “When we began our Blue Man journey, we set our sights on creating theater that would bring people together in a celebration of human connection. We have been humbled, amazed and inspired by the audience responses we have received over the years.” Co-Founder Chris Wink adds, “Now, we find ourselves on the brink of our next chapter, and we have big ideas for the future. Only a global creative powerhouse like Cirque du Soleil could help us achieve our vision. Their commitment to artistic quality and originality is unparalleled and their creative resources are vast. It is an honor to join forces with their organization.”

Blue Man Productions is now a global entertainment company best known for the award-winning Blue Man Group show, performed in over 20 countries and seen by more than 35 million people worldwide since 1991. A dynamic combination of art, music, comedy and technology, the show’s euphoric celebration of human connection has universal appeal for a broad range of age groups and cultural backgrounds. Blue Man Group was owned by Co-Founders Chris Wink and Phil Stanton, and the GF Capital Private Equity Fund. Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC acted as exclusive financial advisor to Blue Man Group.

Ringling Bros. To End ‘The Greatest Show On Earth’ After 146 Years

15 januari 2017

Ringling Bros. To End ‘The Greatest Show On Earth’ After 146 Years

Ellenton, Fla. January 14, 2017 10:39 pm — After 146 years, the curtain is coming down on “The Greatest Show on Earth.” The owner of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus told The Associated Press that the show will close forever in May. The iconic American spectacle was felled by a variety of factors, company executives say. Declining attendance combined with high operating costs, along with changing public tastes and prolonged battles with animal rights groups all contributed to its demise. “There isn’t any one thing,” said Kenneth Feld, chairman and CEO of Feld Entertainment. “This has been a very difficult decision for me and for the entire family.” The company broke the news to circus employees Saturday night after shows in Orlando and Miami.

Ringling Bros. has two touring circuses this season and will perform 30 shows between now and May. Major stops include Atlanta, Washington, Philadelphia, Boston and Brooklyn. The final shows will be in Providence, Rhode Island, on May 7 and in Uniondale, New York, at the Nassau County Coliseum on May 21.

The circus, with its exotic animals, flashy costumes and death-defying acrobats, has been a staple of entertainment in the United States since the mid-1800s. Phineas Taylor Barnum made a traveling spectacle of animals and human oddities popular, while the five Ringling brothers performed juggling acts and skits from their home base in Wisconsin.

Eventually, they merged and the modern circus was born. The sprawling troupes traveled around America by train, wowing audiences with the sheer scale of entertainment and exotic animals. By mid-century, the circus was routine, wholesome family entertainment. But as the 20th century went on, kids became less and less enthralled. Movies, television, video games, and the internet captured young minds. The circus didn’t have savvy product merchandising tie-ins or Saturday morning cartoons to shore up its image.

“The competitor in many ways is time,” said Feld, adding that transporting the show by rail and other circus quirks — such as providing a traveling school for performers’ children— are throwbacks to another era. “It’s a different model that we can’t see how it works in today’s world to justify and maintain an affordable ticket price. So you’ve got all these things working against it.”

The Feld family bought the Ringling circus in 1967. The show was just under 3 hours then. Today, the show is 2 hours and 7 minutes, with the longest segment — a tiger act — clocking in at 12 minutes. “Try getting a 3 or 4-year-old today to sit for 12 minutes,” he said.

Feld and his daughter Juliette Feld, who is the company’s chief operating officer, acknowledged another reality that led to the closing, and it was the one thing that initially drew millions to the show: the animals. Ringling has been targeted by activists who say forcing animals to perform is cruel and unnecessary.

In May of 2016, after a long and costly legal battle, the company removed the elephants from the shows and sent the animals to live on a conservation farm in Central Florida.

The animals had been the symbol of the circus since Barnum brought an Asian elephant named Jumbo to America in 1882. In 2014, Feld Entertainment won $25.2 million in settlements from groups including the Humane Society of the United States, ending a 14-year fight over allegations that circus employees mistreated elephants.

By the time the elephants were removed, public opinion had shifted somewhat. Los Angeles prohibited the use of bull-hooks by elephant trainers and handlers, as did Oakland, California. The city of Asheville, North Carolina nixed wild or exotic animals from performing in the municipally owned, 7,600-seat U.S. Cellular Center.

Attendance has been dropping for 10 years, said Juliette Feld, but when the elephants left, there was a “dramatic drop” in ticket sales. Paradoxically, while many said they didn’t want big animals to perform in circuses, many others refused to attend a circus without them. “We know now that one of the major reasons people came to Ringling Bros. was getting to see elephants,” she said. “We stand by that decision. We know it was the right decision. This was what audiences wanted to see and it definitely played a major role.”

The Felds say their existing animals — lions, tigers, camels, donkeys, alpacas, kangaroos and llamas — will go to suitable homes. Juliette Feld says the company will continue operating the Center for Elephant Conservation. Some 500 people perform and work on both touring shows. A handful will be placed in positions with the company’s other, profitable shows — it owns Monster Jam, Disney on Ice and Marvel Live, among other things — but most will be out of a job.

Juliette Feld said the company will help employees with job placement and resumes. In some cases where a circus employee lives on the tour rail car (the circus travels by train), the company will also help with housing relocation. Kenneth Feld became visibly emotional while discussing the decision with a reporter. He said over the next four months, fans will be able to say goodbye at the remaining shows.

In recent years, Ringling Bros. tried to remain relevant, hiring its first African-American ringmaster, then its first female ringmaster, and also launching an interactive app. It added elements from its other, popular shows, such as motorbike daredevils and ice skaters. But it seemingly was no match for Pokemon Go and a generation of kids who desire familiar brands and YouTube celebrities. “We tried all these different things to see what would work, and supported it with a lot of funding as well, and we weren’t successful in finding the solution,” said Kenneth Feld.

“We are happy to facilitate an experience that brings NFL players closer to football fans from around the world,” said NFL Players, Inc. President Ahmad Nassar. “This will be a unique and innovative showcase of professional football and an example of how our business can be a unifying force.”

Gigi and Tommy take fashion to the funfair

9 november 2016

Gigi and Tommy take fashion to the funfair
Staged at a carnvival, the designer’s AW16 See Now, Buy Now show blurred the line between fashion and entertainment


via @tommyhilfiger

New York City, 10 september 2016 – Last year at New York Fashion Week, Givenchy did something radical: it invited 1,500 members of the public to its SS15 show, a move that was heralded by the owner of a major fashion PR company as “the officialisation of fashion as entertainment.” Last night, Tommy Hilfiger did something to the same effect by inviting a similarly large amount of non-industry professionals (around 1,000 people) to attend his AW16 show, staged at New York’s Pier 16 – which he had transformed into an IRL funfair, complete with rides, temporary tattoo booths, and cotton candy machines. What could be a more fitting location to sell the idea of fashion as entertainment than a funfair?

Of course, Hilfiger was selling more than an idea, he was selling clothes – immediately. This was the designer’s inaugural ‘See Now, Buy Now’ collection, whereby the clothes and accessories were made available to purchase straight after – no, during – the show, instead of after a six-month wait. In fact, you can watch the entire proceedings online now and click on each look as it comes down the runway, see the breakdown of items and purchase them. The transition between see, want, buy has never been more seamless – or more immediate.

But the idea of entertainment went beyond the funfair – it was on the catwalk where Gigi Hadid and her fellow model stars Hailey Baldwin, Stella Maxwell and Sara Sampaio walked (together, these four women have over 35 million Instagram followers, which illustrates something of their pop cultural gravitas), and it was on the front row too where Taylor Swift, Martha Hunt, Gigi’s younger brother Anwar and Kris Jenner sat.

Gigi was central to this show – not only did she model in it, she designed part of the collection in collaboration with the designer, took over his Snapchat account and walked the finale with him, arm-in-arm. Together, they make a fitting pair – as the quintessential All-American girl next door, she represents the brand’s values in a way that reflects the times – and has that all important social media reach.

This was fashion engineered to be entertaining and to appeal to as many people as possible, representing a new type of runway. Shows used to be exclusive events, reserved only for a select few industry insiders – this was anything but.

Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid are building a fashion funfair
For NYFW, the American brand will erect a fairground on New York’s Pier 16, complete with a 40-ft Ferris wheel


Photo: Courtesy of Tommy Hilfiger / @tommyhilfiger

New York City, 23 augustus 2016 – Tommy Hilfiger isn’t exactly low key when it comes to runway shows – over recent seasons, he’s created an enormous Tommy-branded football stadium, a swimming pool, and a flower-power festival set in which to show his new collections. His latest plan is, somehow, even bigger: on September 9th, he’s taking over Pier 16 in NYC to construct Tommy Pier, a fairground-style location for his latest show. 2000 guests will be invited, with half of them Hilfiger fans rather than press.

WWD reports that “featured on the pier will be iconic fair rides and games, including a 40-foot Ferris wheel, classic fairground foods such as pretzels, hot dogs, hamburgers, ice cream sandwiches, cotton candy, lobster rolls, doughnuts and French fries. And fashion.” Of course, fashion – the extravaganza is in part to celebrate his new collaborative collection with Gigi Hadid, which will be sent down a runway with the AW16 collection. It’s all set to be live broadcast and immediately shoppable online – the first entirely “see now buy now” collection by the brand.

The next day, the space will open to the public, with Gigi pop-ups, a Tommy Hilfiger vintage shop, record shop and more. For a chance to attend the fashion show, keep your eyes trained in Tommy’s direction – some tickets will be given out for free.

‘Als de kermis stopt kan ik een uitkering aanvragen’

21 oktober 2016

‘Als de kermis stopt kan ik een uitkering aanvragen’
Binnenstadbestuur Amsterdam wil af van kermis op de Dam


Webcam still kermis Dam Amsterdam woensdag 19 oktober 2016

Amsterdam, 20 oktober 2016 – Steeds meer stemmen gaan op voor het stoppen van de kermis op de Dam. Maar volgens de organisatie hoort het attractiepark op die plek.

Toen de Russische schrijver Maxim Gorky in 1904 het New Yorkse pretpark Coney Island bezocht, was hij gechoqueerd. Amusementsparken, schrijft Gorky in zijn essay Boredom, bieden slechts vals vermaak dat de verveelde arbeidersklasse tijdelijk verdooft. Wat dat betreft zou Gorky waarschijnlijk een groot voorstander zijn van het afschaffen van de halfjaarlijkse kermis op de Dam, een voorstel waar het dagelijks bestuur van stadsdeel Centrum deze maand mee kwam.

„De stad is zo druk, we moeten gaan spreiden”, zegt Boudewijn Oranje (D66), bestuurder van Centrum. Tot een afschaffen komt het zeer waarschijnlijk niet, voegt Oranje er gelijk aan toe: na een uitgebreide bespreking wil de bestuurscommissie tot een compromis komen van één keer per jaar een kermis, in plaats van de huidige twee. Niet alleen wegens de drukte – de politie waarschuwde deze maand nog voor ‘overcrowding’ in de binnenstad –, ook de ondernemersvereniging rond de Dam wil er vanaf, wegens overlast en minder klanten.

In het kaartjeshokje voor het spookhuis zitten Jan en Carolien Lemmerman, koffie dampt uit een plastic bekertje. „Als elke stad zo over de kermis denkt kunnen we gelijk een uitkering aanvragen”, zegt Carolien. Alle ondernemers in dit attractiepark – zo’n 30 in totaal – komen uit kermisfamilies, dit is hun bestaan, vertelt ze. Het hele jaar trekken ze rond, in het voorjaar naar Praag, in de zomer naar België. En in Amsterdam hóórt hij op de Dam, vult Jan aan. „Het is een extra attractie voor de stad.” Ook is het een extra inkomstenbron voor Amsterdam: de twee edities per jaar leveren samen 620.000 euro aan belasting op, zegt Boudewijn Oranje.

Voor René Duursma, organisator van de kermis, laait de discussie over het afschaffen van de kermis altijd eens in de zoveel tijd op. „Maar tot op heden is dit niet gebeurd”, vertelt hij vanuit zijn kantoor in een tijdelijke container op het midden van het plein. „We hebben al veel maatregelen genomen tegen de overlast.” Hij wijst naar een muziekbox in de hoek, waar nu de ‘accordeonhits’-playlist aanstaat. Geen house, controle op het volume, wil hij maar zeggen. Ook zijn de paden tussen de attracties verbreed voor de bezoekersstroom, en de kabels afgedekt.

Duursma wil in gesprek met de gemeente en ondernemers die last ondervinden, al is één keer per jaar geen optie, zegt hij. „De discussie over de kermis wordt gevoed door de discussie over de drukte. Maar je negeert de mening van het publiek. Als dat niet meer kwam, hadden we zelf al de stekker eruit getrokken. Het is een klein groepje dat het ons verrot lastig maakt, zoals ook bij de wintermarkt op het Leidseplein.”

Maar of het zover komt is nog even afwachten, zegt Oranje. Eerst moet het voorstel van één Damkermis per jaar nog langs verschillende bestuurslagen. Als het college het voorstel overneemt, beslist de gemeenteraad in januari of het wordt aangenomen. Maar wie dit jaar nog wil griezelen in het spookhuis van Jan en Carolien moet snel zijn; aanstaande zondag is alweer de laatste dag.

‘Man met twee vuurwapens op zak opgepakt bij hotel Disneyland Parijs’

‘Man met twee vuurwapens op zak opgepakt bij hotel Disneyland Parijs’

Parijs – Bij de ingang van een groot hotel (Hotel New York) op het terrein van pretpark Disneyland Parijs is een man opgepakt die twee vuurwapens op zak bleek te hebben.

Franse media, waaronder Le Figaro en RTL, stellen dat de man verder een doos met kogels en een Koran op zak had. De man werd bij een veiligheidspoortje aangehouden door veiligheidspersoneel van het hotel. Vervolgens werd de politie ingeschakeld.

Een jonge vrouw die hem vergezelde, nam snel de benen, maar de man zelf verzette zich niet tegen zijn aanhouding en is overgedragen aan de politie. De vrouw is nog steeds voortvluchtig volgens de krant Le Parisien. Er is wel een vrouw opgepakt, maar dat bleek niet de metgezel van de man te zijn. Die vrouw is weer vrijgelaten.

Niet bekend
De man uit Parijs zou niet bekend zijn bij de politie of veiligheidsdiensten, melden Franse media. Hij is wel eens vervolgd wegens rijden zonder rijbewijs, volgens de website van de krant Le Parisien.

De prefect van het betrokken departement Seine-et-Marne, Jean-Luc Marx, zei dat het niet bekend is wat de twee in hun schild voerden en of ze schade wilden aanrichten.

Disneyland Parijs sloot vorig jaar enige tijd uit voorzorg na de bloedige aanslagen in Parijs van 13 november.

The Christmas Show 26 & 27 december 2015 Ziggo Dome Amsterdam

21 november 2015

The Christmas Show 26 & 27 december 2015 Ziggo Dome Amsterdam
Dit jaar beleef je Kerst als nooit tevoren in de Ziggo Dome!

Amsterdam – Nederland is vanaf december een nieuwe kersttraditie rijker: The Christmas Show. Op zaterdag 26 en zondag 27 december wordt de Amsterdamse Ziggo Dome voor een publiek van alle leeftijden omgetoverd tot een waar ‘Christmas Wonderland’. In een 100 minuten durende show maken de bezoekers een magische reis vol verwondering en spektakel door de wereld van Kerst.

Waar wereldsteden als New York en Londen in de decembermaand al jaren lang in de ban zijn van spectaculaire kerstshows, heeft nu ook Amsterdam haar eigen Christmas show. In een adembenemend decor dat zich deels ook middenin de arena bevindt, volgen we een nieuw geschreven Kerstsprookje over Max (Justen Beer), een jongetje van 10 dat nog nooit een witte kerst heeft meegemaakt. Zijn grootvader (Ron Brandsteder) probeert hem uit te leggen dat het ware kerstgevoel meer is dan het vallen van sneeuw. Maar het zijn de betoverende Kerstfee (Nicolette van Dam) en haar drie kerstengelen (O’G3NE) die Max leren hoe hij zijn fantasie kan aanwenden om dromen uit te laten komen.

Soliste Edsilia Rombley, een gospelkoor, circusartiesten, dansers, een groot ballet aan mini-ballerina’s en vele andere artiesten voeren de toeschouwer van de ene verbazing in de andere. Het belooft een belevenis te worden vol sfeer, verbazing en ontroering, gecreëerd door de regisseur van The Passion, David Grifhorst en zijn creative team met o.a. Eric van Tijn, Stanley Burleson en Maurice Wijnen. The Christmas Show is een unieke kans om met de hele familie Kerst als nooit tevoren te beleven in een sfeervol spektakel dat zijn weerga in Nederland niet kent. Mis deze kans niet om uw geliefden te trakteren op deze bijzondere Kerstervaring; december 2015, alléén in de Ziggo Dome.

Tickets voor de grootste kerstshow van Nederland zijn verkrijgbaar vanaf 25 euro. Bestel ze snel want er zijn inmiddels al 3 shows uitverkocht!

Amerikaans topmodel Gigi Hadid is superfan van de Efteling

Amerikaans topmodel Gigi Hadid is superfan van de Efteling

Kaatsheuvel – De Efteling heeft zelfs ver over de grens een trouwe schare fans. Een Amerikaans topmodel blijkt helemaal gek te zijn van het oer-Hollandse attractiepark in het Brabantse Kaatsheuvel. Gigi Hadid (20), dochter van de Nederlandse Yolanda Foster- van den Herik (voormalig model), zou dolgraag een fotoshoot in de Efteling doen.

Dat vertelt ze deze maand in een interview van de Nederlandse editie van het modetijdschrift Vogue. “Het was zo leuk geweest als we foto’s in de Efteling hadden kunnen maken, daar woont mijn oma om de hoek!”, aldus de blonde schone. “Ik hou van de Efteling.”

De superster, goed voor zeven miljoen volgers op Instagram, timmert behoorlijk aan de weg. Zo pronkte ze in het beroemde bikininummer van Sports Illustrated, poseerde ze voor lingeriemerk Victoria’s Secret en is ze het gezicht van make-upketen Maybelline.

Foto’s: Jennifer Lopez kronkelt sexy in paardencarrousel Jane’s Carousel in Brooklyn

Foto’s: Jennifer Lopez kronkelt sexy in paardencarrousel Jane’s Carousel in Brooklyn

New York – Latinovamp Jennifer Lopez (46) werkt zich al een paar dagen in Manhattan (New York) in het zweet voor een splinternieuwe videoclip bij het nummer El Mismo Sol (dezelfde zon) waarin ze samenwerkt met de Spaans-Duitse zanger Alvaro Soler.

Centraal object in het filmpje is een historische draaimolen. In die carrousel probeert een nog altijd uiterst lenige JLo, gekleed in een spannend setje, een paar van de hobbelpaarden uit.

Dit alles onder toeziend oog van haar ex-vriendje, choreograaf-danser Casper Smart. Hij keek lachend toe hoe Jennifer zo sexy mogelijk door de attractie probeerde te kronkelen.
