Michael Jackson Returns to Life.

Tonight's the night that two very large (but different) shows open in the region. Michael Jackson: The Immortal comes to the American Airlines Center as a Cirque du Soleil musical blowout that will probably reign in popularity in the same way that The Beatles: Love did. Meanwhile, The Blue Man Group will come to us from their cushy Las Vegas gig at the Venetian, bringing their blue body paint and offbeat sense of humor to the Bass Performance Hall tonight. And there are other things, too!

Michael Jackson: The Immortal at American Airlines Center
It's an interesting choice to call Michael Jackson “The Immortal,” as the year 2009 begs to differ. This Cirque du Soleil show will be packed with MJ songs, intricately choreographed dance routines, and “the secrets of Michael's inner world.” Yeah, OK.

Broncho at City Tavern
Wearing their influences on their sleeves with their nostalgic '70s punk sound, Broncho is a decidedly catchy and irreverent group. Weirdly enough, they're from Oklahoma, a land that is not exactly steeped in the punk scene.

Frontiers (Journey Tribute) at the Dallas Arboretum
The wheel in the sky will be turning tonight at the Dallas Arboretum, as they're having a Journey tribute band and an '80s costume contest, which sounds equally awesome and horrific. For the record, I've been calling the actual Journey a Journey tribute band since Steve Perry left. It's just not the same, people.

The Blue Man Group at Bass Performance Hall
It's such a weird show idea, yet the Blue Man group have been packing in the audiences with their oddball performances for quite some time. PVC pipe drumming, paint splatters and three stoically silent men make for a hilariously fun evening. Unfortunately, Tobias won't be there.
