New Jersey is known of being the home of the famous PNC Bank Arts Center. This venue is ranked in the top five amphitheaters in the country and ranked in the top two outdoor arenas within the New York Metropolitan area

Originally called the Garden State Arts Center, this venue opened its doors to the public in 1968, after 4 years of making this amphitheater. In the beginning this venue concentrated mainly on high-classical music, as well as pop music. They also contained free daytime shows to school children, disabled, elderly and the disadvantage. During the 1990′s the venue went through a big change, the classical music was almost stopped and it felt the need to expand the venue for the top popular music acts to compete with other outdoor amphitheaters. In 1996 PNC Bank purchased naming rights to the venue changing the name from the Garden State Arts Center to the currently PNC Bank Arts Center.
