Prudential Center Earns Industry Top Ranking for 2013
The Rock Named a 'Top Spot' In Venues Today Chart With Record Success
Newark, NJ - As 2013 comes to a close and the holiday season ushers in, Prudential Center has a lot to celebrate as the Rock was named a 'Top Spot' by industry publication Venues Today in their 2013 Year End Rankings. The building has consistently made the Venues Today list, making an appearance in each year of its six year history, placing third overall in the United States this year and ninth worldwide.
Spanning October 2012 to October 2013, shows helping make these accolades possible include sellouts from the Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, Carrie Underwood, Andrea Bocelli and UFC 159: Sonnen vs. Jones. In addition, the building helped bolstered its ranking this fall with a run of sellouts including Michael Buble, Selena Gomez, Drake, Joseph Prince Ministries, Rod Stewart and P!nk.
''We are proud of what the Prudential Center represents in the community by bringing the world's biggest shows to New Jersey. The unique and diverse programming continues to bring the best entertainment acts to Newark and keep The Rock at the forefront in the marketplace,'' said Hugh Weber, President of Devils Arena Entertainment.
There are a number of great shows ready to entertain in December at the Rock with Trans-Siberian Orchestra, WWE LIVE! Holiday Tour, Seton Hall basketball and New Jersey Devils hockey. The upcoming announced 2014 schedule has headline grabbing events including Jay Z, NFL Super Bowl Media Day, UFC 169: CRUZ vs. BARAO, Marc Anthony and George Strait. In addition to this dynamic lineup is our full family show schedule including Disney on Ice, the Harlem Globetrotters and Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus.
''We want to thank all the fans, artists, agents, managers, and promoters who made Prudential Center a top venue this year,'' Weber said. ''We are excited for our 2014 schedule that will continue to bring top acts in the industry, along with our great family programming, to the Rock.''
