First time at The Prudential Center for the Fleetwood Mac concert, Had a seat in front of a bar in the 100's section. Great because you could stand without anyone yelling at you but many people just hang at the bar counter and talk loudly throughout the show. But all in all a great experience..and the music sounded very clear!

The Pru Center has been ago-to arena for sporting events, special shows and concerts for years. The last time I was there five years ago, the center needed some help... perhaps a facelift to improve the seats and overall atmosphere. Last Friday, we went there for a concert and were very surprised and pleased with the new and improved Pru... More

My first time at the Prudential Center in Newark. Was concerned about the drive and the parking, which was unwarranted. Getting to the center from the GSP was quick and easy, good signage at all intersections. Multiple parking lots within walking distance to the venue which were reasonably priced. You also had the option of pre paying for parking on... More

Best concert ever! Drinks are sooooo....pricey! Great acoustics, walking distance to hotel and some restaurants. Compared to other venues, PC is not that crowded or jam-packed.

I have been to the Prudential Center twice for concerts. Once in March and again this October for the Fleetwood Mac Concert, which was Exceptional! I like this center better than MSG for concerts, the vendors and the concession stands are great, many to choose from for snacks and drinks. The ladies rooms are huge and well kept and the... More

Went to the Prudential Center) last night (October 11th) to attend the Fleetwood Mac concert. Having been a huge Fleetwood Mac fan since the mid 70s, I was especially excited about this tour because Christine McVie, who had retired after the 1997 reunion tour, has returned to the band, making this the first time Fleetwood Mac has toured with the...

I saw Fleetwood Mac at the Prudential Center last night and the house was full. The staff was friendly and helpful in directing us to our seats. The sound system was awesome for such a large venue. The big screens up high were great to watch as the stage was far away even though we were only one floor up.... More

We pre-paid for the VIP yellow parking for a weekend long event at the Prudential Center. The parking was specifically FOR THE EVENT. When we got the confirmation, the times that we were allowed to park were different than the time of the show! Emails went back and forth for weeks and they would never just say it was OK... More

Went to the Devils vs. Flyers on Sept 28, 2014 - There is NO MORE FREE FOOD OR DRINKS. It started this year and I was told by many of the staff. There are two options: You buy season tickets and opt out of the $30 credit food OR you have to pay way (couple thousand) more for season tickets... More
