The O'Neill Brothers w/Deborah Gibson
Witherspoon Hall, 7:30 p.m., $27.50, 345.0606, omahaperformingarts.org
So apparently Debbie Gibson is all serious these days (excuse me, she goes by Deborah now). On this night the former '80s pop queen will be singing with acclaimed piano duo Tim and Ryan O'Neill instead of prancing around on MTV with leg warmers and 7-inch tidal wave bangs (which is what she was doing the last time we saw her). There'll probably be plenty of love songs and ballads played at this show considering its proximity to Valentine's Day. But who knows, maybe she'll throw in a grown-up rendition of "Only In My Dreams."
