Summer is here and South Jersey is in full “concert mode.”

It’s going to be a jam-packed summer for music, with Grammy-award winners, Billboard chart-toppers and Rock-and-Roll Hall-of-Famers all heading to the shore to entertain.

One of the biggest concerts this summer will feature three-time Grammy-award winner Pink on July 12. Pink averaged between 15,000 to 20,000 attendees during her 2013 “The Truth About Love” tour. Billboard Magazine named it the third best-selling tour of 2013.

Pink has had 14 singles in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Among her most popular are “Just Give Me a Reason” and “Sober.”

The Who will be the “what” in terms of events July 22. The rock ‘n’ roll legends will perform at Boardwalk Hall with hits that are expected to include “Baba O’Riley” and “My Generation.”

And hip-hop fans should not feel excluded. Artists of past and present will be playing Atlantic City throughout August, with Ruff Ryders (DMX, Ja Rule and others) on the beach Aug. 3, and multiplatinum artist Future at Boardwalk Hall on Aug. 24.
