This summer is one we’ve all been waiting for. Live music is back. Those concert tickets you’ve been holding onto for 2 years now are finally going to be scanned and voided and you’ll finally be able to see your favorite artist live.

Since most of these concerts have been postponed for so long, many of them are already sold out and you’ll have to pay double, or even triple the price for resale tickets. Thankfully, a lot of these tours have added shows for this reason exactly so there are plenty of opportunities to buy those tickets if you haven’t already.

Plus, if you plan on visiting venues like PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel or the Waterfront Music Pavilion in Camden, they have the lawn area that is completely open and operates on a first-come, first-serve basis. There’s still a great view of the show, and the best part, those tickets are incredibly cheap.

If you’ve been craving to get out there and see some live music, here is a list of some of the biggest acts that are coming through New Jersey this summer and you can buy tickets to see the show:
