The NJ pac is an excellent venue for top performances. Every seat in the house is rather adequate No need to spring for big bucks. The restaurant serves a nice assortment of food. Easy accessibility to the parkways

Don't go any higher than tier 1, I personally only do box seat depending on what your going to see grand tier is good but if it's a concert not so good as people stand in front of you and you can't see when they do.
