Nicholas G. Hayek and presenter Michelle Hunziker
preparing for the Blue Man Group (not because of the weather, see below!)
The Blue Man Group "concert" lasted for about 45 minutes. After a short break, it was time for the live creation of the Swatch art special during their performance on stage.
As you can see, the result was very nice
but it could have been better, probably because of the very strong wind
performance. Let's see how the watch turns out when it will be
released in a limited edition of 3333 pieces in october. At the
press conference, Blue Man Group founder Matt Goldman
said that the special was "80% ready", so the rest will be inspired by
the piece of art above, created live during the performance.
For your amusement, here is a video with
some performance snippets of the
Blue Man Group, taped by Russ (Audio gets better after about 35 seconds):
end of concert!
everybody exhausted but happy!
a lot of mess to clean up!
After the Blue Man Group performance, at
around 10pm, a grand display of fireworks was blown up above the Lago
Di Lugano, it lasted about half an hour and it was one of the most
impressive fireworks that I have seen!
It also included a great lasershow.

Well, that was not
all! Around midnight, the DJ team "Round Table Knights"
played some entertaining music on the Piazza Della Riforma until the
early morning. Lots of confetti, too...
