We came here for the Elton John concert. Prudential Center has a much cozier atmosphere than some of the other arena in our area and we always have a great time here for both sporting events or concerts. Parking is usually fine as well.

Although I absolutely love Marc Anthony and his beautiful voice, he did not sing One song in English. Needless to say I was disappointed not to have heard my favorite songs, not one. Would not go see another show of his.

Hockey at its best. The atmosphere is outstanding. Saw a very good home game 5-1 including the potential goal of the season. When you are in the area get tickets and enjoy!
