We've been blessed this year with a bounty of great concerts. But before we say "so long" to 2022, there are still more cool shows to consider.
UPMC Events Center in Moon Township welcomes pop stars The 1975; famed studio musician Jeff "Skunk" Baxter makes a rare solo appearance at Jergel's in Marshall Township, and Marie Osmond headlines a Heinz Hall Christmas concert with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
Trans-Siberian Orchestra will light up PPG Paints Arena again, or you can spend New Year's Eve there with a true bunch of dummies (manned by ventriloquist Jeff Dunham.)
From Kenny G to Donnie I(ris) singing at A Very Yinzer Christmas, there's a show for you.
