Godsmack at Rock The Rockfest 2022

There’s nothing like a live concert. That feeling you get when you are waiting for your favorite band to take the stage. Then the lights dim, and you know they’re about to come out and bring it! As we kick off this New Year, there’s already a bunch of killer shows that are coming up. Let’s take a look at 5 local concerts to attend to rock in the New Year!

Usually, you round up some friends hop in the car, and make your way to a venue. Tailgating is a favorite pastime for some. While others just head right inside once doors open ready to headbang or feel the music pound in their chest.

Heck, I’ve even gone to a concert myself when I couldn’t find a single person who liked the band, so I bought tickets to see it. And I’ll tell you what – It was a blast. I focused on the musicianship, had a drink, and didn’t have to make chit-chat with anyone. No matter how you go, the concert experience is always unique and fun!

I love seeing what songs a band chooses to perform in their set. There’s always that possibility of a special guest popping up on stage. And then, of course, it’s not just about the music, but what will we see? Explosions, pyrotechnics, video screens. There are so many ways for an artist to present themselves now, it’s amazing!

Thankfully, being in New Jersey, we get so many artists stopping by, whether it’s at one of our many awesome venues or nearby NYC or in Philly.
We’re never at a loss for an awesome show to attend and that’s why I thought we could take a look at what is on the way my friends. Below, you’ll find 5 local concerts to attend to rock in the New Year!
