One of the coolest gifts you can give the holiday season is concert tickets. They're easily wrapped, They'll get people who have been cooped up for so long out of the house and we're lucky enough to have some of the best shows in the world right here in New Jersey.

Last week I gave you the PNC Bank Arts Center lineup for 2022. Here's the New Jersey Performing Arts Center lineup as well from their website. For tickets to any of the shows click here
