This is what the FAQ on their website says:

"Will I get wet or covered in paint?

Almost certainly not. However, nothing is perfect. Best not to wear your tux or favourite ball gown. For the front rows, it's a little different. We provide plastic ponchos in case materials find their way from stage to auditorium"

we sat in the front row in chicago and I would definitely wear your poncho. It is not paint, but more of a banana-ish paste that you may come in contact with. The only issue we had was one of the people got some in her hair, but it was harmless and good fun.

Don't stress about it, just sit back and enjoy an incredible show!

I've seen them in Vegas. The venue may be bigger, but we sat in the section where they gave us ponchos. Nobody got splattered. the Poncho is more than enough to protect you.

It is a really fun show. Enjoy!

Hahahaha!!

I went a few weeks ago and refused to sit in the 1st 10 rows, we were going out for dinner afterwards and just couldnt risk it.

A couple of people in the front row did get a little bit of 'stuff' on them. As there website suggests dont wear your best clothes.

The show is fabulous and such a great laugh, would highly recommend it to any one with a sense of humour.

We went to Boston in a relatively small venue.

The show was the DOGS B's and would love to go to see them in London.

I'm sure you'll have a great time whatever you wear.
