Must-See Concerts in New Jersey in October


Outdoor concerts were last month.

Seriously, the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, the Freedom Mortgage Pavilion (formerly known as Waterfront Music and BB&T Pavilion) in Camden and MetLife Stadium have been packed with great shows this summer.

It could have been the biggest summer of touring, from Tears for Fears to Dave Matthews Band to Elton John’s farewell shows.

All three of these sites are outdoors, so once the fresh air starts to come in, you won’t be buying those cheap garden seats until next year.

And if you’re a football fan, well, there’s no cheap seats, but that doesn’t stop super fans from stalking in sub-zero weather just to watch their teams lose (I’m a Jets fan, I have the right to say this).

Luckily, New Jersey has more than a dozen venues where you can enjoy all types of concerts, whatever your musical tastes.

The fall season kicks off many tours and is the perfect time to see a show.

It’s also a great holiday starter gift that you won’t have to worry about when the holidays actually roll around.

October is a busy month. It’s not just Halloween season and we’re well into football season too, but Oktoberfest is also celebrated in the Garden State.

There are a handful of great gigs happening here.

From big venues like the Prudential Center in Newark to smaller, more intimate spots like Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, they’re packed with shows this month for everyone.
