Prudential Center (Newark, NJ) User Reviews

Average rating:
Not so great.
Juliano W. May 7, 2013
I came here to see Muse and that was the only time I came here. The seating was rather bad and very tight. Drunk people from left to right. The traffic on the way back was terrible. Unless you live near by I recommend taking the bus because the traffic was just about as long as the show itself.

I am a Jersey girl all the way. I love going to the Prudential Center because it is such a live atmosphere. The arena is huge and it is very entertaining. The place can be jamm packed but you do not feel smothered by everyone.I love going to the Devils games and the live concerts.
Beautiful Venue surrounded by not-so-great details

The Prudential Center is a huge and very impressive arena in Newark, New Jersey for concerts and sports games. My last visit was to a Devil's Game. Unfortunately, the arena itself was about the only great thing about the experience. The Devil's Fans are a little too extreme and proud for my liking. One of the reasons I say this is because they had won 1 single game the entire season when I went and yet we had to change our seats because of harassing fans (I'm not a Devil's Fan). Even so, fine- have your pride even if it isn't deserved. I am not a complainer and do not like to let things like this get to me. But, at the very least, do not harass others who don't support your team by blowing tubas in their ears and screaming offensive things until it cannot be stood anymore. When we went to change our seats, the employees were extremely rude, as if defending the fans! They gave us worse seats than we started with that had almost no one in our section, but the few people that were there made sure to continue the harassment. The other downfall is the only beautiful part of the location is the arena- I felt unsafe even walking through the parking lot. I had wanted to leave my purse hidden in the car, but was strongly advised by many not to do so and was pretty uncomfortable having it the whole game- and walking with it in the street. We went to a little bar across the street after the game because it was about the only place we felt comfortable enough to walk alone. The arena itself was enjoyable, with a nice selection of second floor bars (that you need to be VIP for many to even enter), but almost everything else was not.
Awesome venue

I came here to see my favorite Korean pop group (Big Bang) perform and I was impressed with my overall experience. Entrance into the concert was fast and easy. I only waited in line to enter into the main doors. After that, the ticket checking process was a breeze (and this was a sold out show). There were many attendants there to help me find my seat. Once I found my seat, I was amazed at the view! I managed to snag a ticket for a seat relatively close to the stage, but from the looks of it, there wasn't a bad seat in the house. My only objection to the venue would be the quality of the screens on stage. I'm not sure if it was the specific lighting of the show, but I couldn't get any pictures of the screen with my camera. Also, the food was way too overpriced. But this is probably something that all concert venues have in common.

I'm a big Devil's fan, so I've spent a decent amount of non-musical time at the Rock, and let me just say, wow, who knew? Not only is the stadium a five minute walk from the train station (let's be honest, you don't want to get too deep into Newark after dark), but the train itself is a quick fifteen-to-twenty minute ride from New York Penn Station. Not only that, but this huge indoor arena is the perfect place to see your very own New Jersey Devils shred the ice on a given Tuesday night. Proximity to New York also makes this a much-loved stop for many a big arena rock band like Bon Jovi or the Stones, so definitely check the schedule on any given date. RISE UP!
Good Venue

I came here for Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour Cirque du Soleil and really enjoyed the venue. We had a behind-the-scenes tour before doors even opened to the public, so it was really cool to get a feel for the space when it was quiet. During the show, the seats were very comfortable and we had a great view of the stage (we were seated off to the side in the lower level). Overall, I thought the venue was clean and I really enjoyed my time there. Another plus was that it was easy to get to from Manhattan. I've only been once so I don't have too much to go off of, but I would definitely go back.
