Both will be headliners at Lights All Night, which brings more than four dozen musical artists to North Texas for an off-the-hook party that will make New Year’s Eve a few days later seem like an after-thought.

Quirky trio Blue Man Group returns to Winspear
They make music, but don’t deliver a concert. They perform wordlessly, but don’t dance. They are comics who don’t utter a word. And they are blue … and not just because of Seasonal Affective Disorder. Personally, I’ve never exactly grooved to the appeal of the Blue Man Group, a weird, mixed-media display of whimsy and light and neon-colored flesh, but this enduring act (especially Vegas and NYC) has attracted audiences for decades. They settle in for a week-long stint back at the Winspear.
