Here they are, the ones that you love

If you understand that headline, then you'll be happy to learn that Air Supply's latest tour stops at the Bergen Performing Arts Center Feb. 24. The soft rock superstar duo of the 1980s -- whose albums have sold more than 20 million copies -- are still singing, still touring, performing faves like "All Out of Love," "Making Love Out of Nothing at All," and "Lost in Love," 1980's Song of the Year.

Exercise your brain with some candy

The young and those hoping to keep their aging brains agile will appreciate "Brain Candy Live!" at New Jersey Performing Arts Center's Prudential Hall Feb. 26. On the Discovery Channel's "MythBusters," host Adam Savage used science to test myths, rumors and news stories. Michael Stevens is the mind behind Vsauce, the educational YouTube channel that questions scientific oddities. The show as been promoted as "a two-hour play date with Walt Disney, Willy Wonka and Albert Einstein."

$39-119, Feb. 26, 3 p.m. NJPAC,  1 Center St., Newark. 800-GO-NJPAC. 

He had you at "Hey, Heidi Klum, how you doin'?"

Long Island pizza deliveryman turned crooner Sal Valentinetti continues to make the most of his "America's Got Talent" stint, bringing his old school style and charm and Rodney Dangerfield-esque speaking style to Mayo Performing Arts Center Feb. 24. The 20-something also known as "Sal the Voice" loves the classics he learned on his grandmother's knee -- songs by Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin and Dean Martin. He hopes his audience -- and Ms. Klum -- enjoy the show. 

$29-69, Feb. 24, 8 p.m., Mayo Performing Arts Center, 100 South St., Morristown. 973-539-8008.

Boogie on the (almost) bayou

Singer/pianist Marcia Ball adeptly interprets New Orleans classics while dazzling with her own compositions every time she takes the stage with "Boogie on the Bayou: A Mardi Gras Celebration featuring Marcia Ball & The Subdudes," as she will Feb. 25 at the South Orange Performing Arts Center. The seemingly-ageless blues artist is joined by The Subdudes, a band of native New Orleanians who blend blues, funk, gospel and R & B. If you can't be at Carnival, this is the net best thing. (Fat Tuesday is Feb. 28.)

$45-65, Feb. 25, 8 p.m., South Orange Performing Arts Center, One SOPAC Way, South Orange. 973-313-2787.
