Prudential Center

See everything from electrifying hockey games and huge musical concerts to monster truck rallies and children’s shows at The Rock.

The Prudential Center is a large multifaceted indoor sports stadium that hosts an eclectic range of events. In addition to hockey and basketball, the arena puts on regular concerts featuring some of the biggest names in music. Watch some of your musical heroes from the comfort of your seat in this impressive arena.  

The building is known as The Rock, in reference to the emblem of Prudential Financial, which owns the arena’s naming rights. See the New Jersey Devils of the NHL play a home hockey game or watch the Seton Hall Pirates men’s basketball team. 

Learn how the stadium first opened in 2007 to a series of 10 gigs by local superstar band Bon Jovi. Other momentous occasions have included performances by Paul McCartney and The Eagles, auditions for The X Factor and the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals in hockey.

Enjoy the charged atmosphere and excellent acoustics from seats that fully encircle the stage. Bring your kids to family entertainment shows, with such themes as dancing on ice and monster truck rallies. 

Have a meal at The Restaurant at Prudential Center, which serves a range of dishes including risotto, steak and hot dogs. Consider a premium experience in the luxury seats and private bar setting of the Goal Bar Experience.

Purchase tickets online for a sports game or a show. Recent performers have included Lorde, Janet Jackson and Katy Perry. You can also go in person to the box office on the side of the arena. It’s open Monday through Friday from late morning until early evening. 

The Prudential Center stands beside the political hub of the Government Center in the heart of Newark. Ride the train to Newark Penn Station, which is a 5-minute walk east of the arena. Visit nearby institutions, such as Newark City Hall, Military Park and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.
