MuchMusic Gets Blue Man 9/11 Tribute


MuchMusic USA announced Tuesday that it will have the exclusive premiere of
Blue Man Group's Sept. 11 music-video tribute, 'Exhibit 13.'

That video will bow on the Rainbow Media Group network Sept. 11 at 8:50 a.m.,
after which it will be repeated every hour for the rest of that day, according
to MuchMusic, which will not carry any commercials Sept. 11.

The three-and-a-half-minute video tribute to the Sept. 11 victims and heroes
will open with the words, 'The following pieces of paper blew into the Carroll
Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.'

Those papers -- ranging from handwritten notes and business receipts to
personal calendars and memos written in Japanese -- were blown from the World
Trade Center to a Brooklyn park.

In a prepared statement, MuchMusic president Marc Juris called the work 'a
highly emotional music video.'
