This was a great venue. We say Cirque Du Soleil's show Toruk. The show was great. The venue is very easy to get to. The place is clean. Lots of food stalls inside and plenty of bathroom. Loved the seats although we sat in the nose bleeds we still saw the show below comfortably. Parking - quick tip. Parking right... More

Toruk, Cirque de Soliel's fairly new road show has some great visuals, music and acrobats. It is base loosely on James Cameron's Avitar. Although the acrobats are outstanding and the story line is unique, this show lacks the variety that their tent shows usually deliver. It should however not be missed and the Prudential Center is a good venue for... More

This was an awesome show. Cirque du Soleil never disappoints. Great show for kids of all ages. It is interactive too.

We saw a concert here recently, and the venue hall was exceptional. However, the concession stands leave a lot to be desired (most were closed, and for those that were open the lines were insanely long) and the parking is a nuisance as the lots are scattered all around the Center. Also, I found the parking fee to be approximately... More

It's small but nicely laid out. A fantastic place to see a game. Easy to get to via train and parking all around.

I am a huge Devils fan and love coming to watch them live. The Prudential Center is a nice open arena. I've had tickets sitting low level and loved them, but I typically go for upper level but more towards center ice to see everything and it's a little cheaper. I go to about 4 games every year and have... More

First time visiting the Prudential Center for a Pitbull concert. Comfortable seats, good sound system and sight lines. The public areas were spacious and lots of restrooms, especially for women. It was easy to get too. Parking expensive for events but we found a space on the street. Food was expensive, $5 for a small water bottle. The staff was... More

The Prudential center is located in Newark, NJ about a half hour from NYC. I came here to see Bruce Springsteen's River tour in January. There are many restaurants and bars in the area and it's a good idea to grab some food or drinks before entering. The venue is home to many bars i which are great to drink... More
