This morning on radio, Glenn revealed the details behind this summer’s exciting Man in the Moon stage show which will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah on July 6th at the USANA Amphitheatre. Glenn promised that this event would be a new way to celebrate the Fourth of July with your family, something that offered more than empty fireworks displays and hot dogs. Tickets go on sale next Tuesday, February 18th and can be purchased at the Man in the Moon website.
“This summer we begin a new adventure together,” Glenn told listeners on radio this morning.
As a prelude to the announcement, Glenn discussed how Fourth of July celebrations have become focused on all the wrong things. It’s all about having the biggest firework display, games in the pool, hot dogs and hamburgers.
“Hot dogs, maybe water skiing during the day, fireworks at night which includes Bruce Springsteen and James Brown and a Celine Dion song, and we go home. And that’s all it is. It’s beer, it’s outdoors, sunshine, have fun, and fireworks,” he said. “We’re not passing on anything to our children, except the tradition of going out and having hot dogs and fireworks.”
For the past several months, Glenn has been working with a dedicated team of experimental storytellers to develop new forms of live entertainment. While Restoring Love was Glenn’s first attempt to create a new way of doing spoken word live events by combining music, video, and more – Man in the Moon will take things to the next level for a truly spectacular stage show.
“This last year I’ve been talking to Imagineers, I’ve been talking to people who are the best in Hollywood, the best in stage. We have looked for the people at Cirque du Soleil and I’ve gone to a couple of their shows to kind of see exactly how they are doing things,” Glenn explained. “ And I’ve hired some really amazing people in the American Dream Labs. The American Dream Labs is all about storytelling, and this year we are going to item the American story but from the point of view that you’ve never heard it from before. It’s not a historian’s point of view, not my point of view.”
“Who knows the history of America better than anybody else? Somebody who would know the history of the entire world and has watched men make the same mistakes over and over again. And has waited, waited for somebody to just keep continuing to look up even in the good times. This year we’ll tell the American story from the perspective of the Man in the Moon.”
Glenn has already revealed that the show will feature a gigantic replica of the moon itself which would come to life with special effects. The event will also feature giant, robotic men walking through the audience and a fireworks display to recreate World War II.
“It will be unlike anything your family will have ever experienced in the past. It is something that you will have fun, you’ll cheer. It’s not a fireworks show, although pyrotechnics are involved,” he said. “At one point the fireworks are to recreate World War II.”
“This is unlike any Fourth of July celebration ever done,” Glenn said. “We have selected Salt Lake City as our city that we will be performing for the first time the Man in the Moon. ”
Tickets go on sale for the event on February 18th. There are Gold, Silver, and Bronze VIP packages as well as Reserved and Lawn seating.
