We enjoyed attending the concert. All employees we came into contact with were friendly. We watched the show from the floor and I felt they were a little understaffed. They only had one person in our area to keep people from sneaking up to steal a better seat. The poor girl had her hands full but she did very well... More

I was attending an event, and as time was late figured I'd grab a quick something at the venue. They were offering a chicken tender and french fries combo, and I have to say that they were probably one of the most delicious ones I've ever had! Crispy, moist, piping hot tenders; perfectly salted fries, yum! For a quick, grab... More

Bought tickets to see The Princess Bride: An Inconceivable Evening with Cary Ewles. We were on the fourth level. Having never visited this venue before did not know how high or how steep this section was. I had a panic attack as I'm scared of heights. Although I know that is not the fault of the venue, they would not... More

Seen a show with a group of friends and kids had fun enjoying Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey. Parking is rough to find you forced to pay in Newark. Traffic is horrible but that's city life.

Over all, the acts all met or exceeded expectations: the performers all put on good acts; their backup singers and musicians all did a good job, but . . . the Pru Ctr does not really lend itself to concerts (and especially so concerts of this nature. From the very, very poor stage lighting to the terrible, terrible acoustics that... More

Good shows and great location. Easy to get by public transportation and it has its own parking space for drivers.

At this time, I’ve only been to eight NHL arenas, and Prudential Center is one of the nicest if not the nicest I’ve visited. My girlfriend set up a road trip for a couple of dozen of us Anaheim Ducks fans to see our team play the New York Islanders and then the New Jersey Devils, so it was especially... More

Went to see Fleetwood Mac concert at the Pru Center. Parking was easy, getting in a breeze, and the venue is perfect for a concert!

Home of the NJ Devils and SHU basketball, the Rock sets the standard for modern sports and entertainment arenas. Couple that with a first rate staff and great service and you have an experience not to be missed.
