Besides Winter on the Rocks, which we gave you the drop on yesterday, this week's biggest concert news involves New Jersey's second biggest musical export next to the one that was in town last night at the Pepsi Center. Bon Jovi is bringing its Because We Can tour to the Pepsi Center this April, while KMFDM returns to the Summit music hall in March. Keep reading for the full rundown, along with local radio speciality show playlists and a breadown of the week's top local album sales.
