The lore of Jimmy Hoffa's alleged hit-man will be covered in Martin Scorcese's long-awaited film, which you might be able to watch in your living room. Netflix has scored 'The Irishman'. Robert DeNiro, Newark native Joe Pesci and Al Pacino will co-star.

King Crimson is coming to Monmouth County on tour and also is teasing new music. The classic rock vets will play Count Basie Theatre in July. King Crimson's first new song since 2003 is slated for release in April.

Get ready to hear this song a lot! Coldplay and The Chainsmokers (who had a smash hit with NJ native, Halsey) used the Brit Awards on Wednesday to drop a collaboration. Overnight, it shot to the top of the charts in the states and the U.K.:

The Chainsmokers are coming around in June on tour, with dates in Philly and Queens. Coldplay will return to MetLife Stadium in August.
