Celebrate the holidays with an American musical legend! From her first number one recording, “He’s a Rebel,” through her string of hits with legendary producer Phil Spector (including “Da Doo Ron Ron”), 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Darlene Love is still blazing a trail of success in the music industry.

For this holiday season concert, Love will welcome a variety of special guests including Newark’s own Cissy Houston, and Mary Wilson of The Supremes.
