Outdoor concerts were so last month.
Seriously though PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, Freedom Mortgage Pavilion (formally known as the Waterfront Music and BB&T Pavilion) in Camden, and MetLife Stadium were full of some great shows over the summer.
It might have been the biggest summer of tours, from Tears for Fears to Dave Matthews Band to Elton John’s farewell shows.
All three of these venues are outdoors so once the cool air starts flowing in, you won’t be buying those cheap lawn seats until next year.
And if you’re a football fan, well there are no cheap seats but that doesn’t stop super fans from tailgating in below-zero weather just to watch their teams lose (I’m a Jets fan, I’m allowed to say it).
Luckily, New Jersey has well over a dozen venues where you can enjoy all types of concerts no matter what your musical taste is.
The fall season kicks off many tours and it’s the perfect time to see a show.
It also makes a great early holiday gift you won’t have to worry about when the holidays actually do roll around.
October is a busy month. It’s not only Halloween season and we’re well into the football season too, but Oktoberfest is also celebrated in the Garden State.
There are a handful of great concerts happening here.
From big venues like the Prudential Center in Newark to smaller, more intimate places like Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, they are full of shows this month fit for everyone.
