December 2012 Events Image

As the days in November wound down, there was one thing that I kept hearing people say, "I can't believe its almost December already." Well, you can eliminate the "almost" from that statement because December is here with all the cold weather and holiday cheer you can handle.

For a lot of us, December also marks one of the busiest times of the entire year between holiday shopping, visiting family, decorating... well, you get the idea. So, if you are looking for something fun to do in between all the holiday chaos, here are some of the top events that are coming up in this month:

Concerts

The Rolling Stones: The aging rockers celebrate their 50th anniversary with three shows, including December 8 in Brooklyn and December 13 and 15 in Newark.

November Events Image

It sure doesn't feel like the end of October, does it? We here in southern New England are getting back into the swing of things after Hurricane Sandy flew through yesterday. Meanwhile, our friends in southern New York and the New Jersey coast are dealing with the aftermath, trying to piece things back together (and get the subways running again).

With that reality, it is possible that some of the productions in the theater section below may change their opening dates or have one or more nights go dark, depending on how fast everything in the city can get fixed. Be sure to check the Broadway Leauge's website for updates.

Concerts

The Who: Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, and the band are heading to the stage for their first full-scale tour since 2007, playing their classic album Quadrophenia.
