The Arena Across The New Jersey Highway

The construction of the Arena, which is now known as the Continental Airlines Arena, or simply the Continental Arena, began in 1977 across the New Jersey State Highway 120 from the Giants Stadium. The Arena opened on July 2, 1981, and was originally named the Brendan Bryne Arena, after the then governor of the state. The first performance on the opening on July 2 was a concert by New Jersey rock musician Bruce Springsteen, with six sold out shows.

Even then, as now, many people and the press simply refer to the venue as Meadowlands Arena. Having been designed with acoustics in mind, the arena is very popular for hosting concerts, as it has a lesser facility fee for artists than competing venues, such as the Madison Square Garden.

Bruce Springsteen is a very popular performer here, with 44 sold out concerts, including the 10-night, sold-out run in 1984, an 11-night run in 1992, and a 15-night, sold-out run in 1999. The other top artists who have performed at the Arena include Billy Joel, Elton John, Madonna, U2, Celine Dion, Eric Clapton, Bon Jovi, Britney Spears and Eminem. Such performances have made the venue one of the top concert venues in the country.

The Arena has also hosted Stanley Cup, where the New Jersey Devils clinched three championships. Other than the sporting events, the arena has hosted a number of family shows including Disney on Ice, Harlem Globetrotters, Sesame Street Live, WWE, Champions On Ice, and Barnum & Bailey.
