Coming from Long Island, ANYTHING is an upgrade over the Nassau Coliseum but I have to say I was a little disappointed with the Pru Center. I took my 8 year old daughter to see Katy Perry on Saturday evening. I pre-paid for parking. I guess it is a good thing they close the street in front of the arena... More

My wife and I went to this show by taking the train to Penn Station Newark. We saw at least 20 people in pairs with signs to assist people in getting to the Prudential Center. After the show, nobody cares if you make it back to the train station. The police are dealing with traffic at the venue. There are... More

Awesome! No long lines to get into concert. Women should try to use bathrooms before going in because of long lines. We were in Section 127, good view of stage.

Travelled here from Manhattan - superbly easy to get to via public transport. An excellent venue for gigs, thoroughly recommended. Decent bars also nearby.

We have been here two times. After our second visit we decided we would not return. Although there is a strong police presence we do not feel safe there. It can be very scary if you have to walk a few blocks to get to and from the venue. There have also been numerous violent attacks on people.

Traveled from DC to NJ for a Caps vs Devils game. Loved the arena. Great views for cheap in Lower Level. Cheaper to get a hotel, drive up and get tickets that close then just buying tickets in DC. Lots of good places to eat and drink inside. Very nice arena. Will be back.

Great arena.....fantastic views from any seat. Personnel are very courteous and friendly. Very safe feeling too with all the security and police presence (we were fans of the visiting team). Decent prices on food and nice team store. Very clean facility. public access areas were wide with easy flow of traffic. Smoking terrace for the smokers. Nice sculptures out front.... More

We stopped for a Devils/Bruins game. We are Bruins fans. Were dressed in Bruins gear but still has super service by friendly people. Prices etc were close to other arenas but the food was good and we really enjoyed the game.
