Wednesday’s Music

Blue Man Group.

Giving you the music a day early:

After kicking off their three-day residency on Valentine’s Day, those blue guys are still hanging around Robinson Center Music Hall. And by the blue guys we mean the Blue Man Group, a group of men in blue who are not cops but really just a few guys who thrill audiences with their theatrical show that includes comedy, music and technology. It’s really kind of like nothing you’ve ever seen if you’ve never seen it. And if you haven’t seen it, the Blue Man Group is still at Robinson Center Music Hall through Thursday. Tickets are $24, $33, $42 and $51 for the nearly two-hour show that includes no intermission. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. each night with a 1 p.m. matinee Thursday when all tickets are $24.

The band is touring in support of their 100 Miles of Wreckage, a collection of tunes that combine country, roots, rock and blues for their take on Appalachian mountain music. The opening act is North Little Rock Americana singer/songwriter Audrey Dean Kelley kicking off the music at 9 p.m. Cover is $8 for the show.

By this time in our cultural history, most people know of the Blue Man Group, Maybe not exactly what they do, but the group is woven into our shared cultural fabric by now. So when one says Blue Man Group is coming to Robinson Center Music Hall for three nights (through Feb. 16), one knows there will be these blue guys entertaining crowds through their theatrical show that includes comedy, music and technology. It’s visually stunning and … Read more >
