There's something about bald men in blue. In Blue Man Group's How to Be a Megastar Tour 2.0, the mime trio dish out their unusually hypnotic, eclectic instrumental selection with your typical percussion and your not-so-typical fiberglass airpoles and PVC piping to create a banging rock concert atmosphere. Known for their parodies, the Group satirizes today's rock-star persona in all its glory while mixing in multimedia theatrics at every beat. And, if you saw their Complex Rock Tour, they'll be taking the concert-manual concept to the next level with a how-to guide to achieving superstardom — and they probably have some good advice, seeing how they've booked the superstar-sized Wachovia Center for this Philly performance. This live rock show — rife with comedic sarcasm and interactive entertainment — might just be the best rock concert you've ever been to — without the high-profile star, of course.

Wachovia Center, 3601 South Broad Street, 7:30 p.m., $49.50-$89.50, 800-298-4200; www.comcastspectacor.com
