Venue Information:
The IZOD Center was finished in 1981. It is often referred to as The Meadowlands, referring to the Meadowlands Sports Complex that, along with Giants Stadium and Meadowlands Racetrack, it is a part of.

IZOD Center is home to the NBA's New Jersey Nets and hundreds of different events.

Countless LEGENDARY moments in sports and entertainment history have taken place in the IZOD Center. The Devils have won three Stanley Cups in the last nine years (1995, 2000, 2003) and the Nets advanced to the NBA Finals the past two years (2002, 2003). The IZOD Center has also hosted the NBA All-Star Game in 1982, the NHL All-Star Game in 1984, and the NCAA Men's Final Four in 1996.

The IZOD Center has been graced by the greatest stars in modern music. It boasts a STATE-OF-THE-ART acoustical structure designed to provide audiences with excellent sound and an optimum view no matter where they're seated. The IZOD Center opened in July 1981 with six sold-out shows by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. Springsteen has frequently been back to the Meadowlands including a record 15 sold-out performances at the arena in 1999. Overall, Springsteen has sold-out 44 concerts at the arena and 16 at Giants Stadium making him the Meadowlands' top-selling artist. Other artists that have performed at the Arena include Billy Joel, Elton John, Madonna, U2, Celine Dion, Eric Clapton, Bon Jovi, Britney Spears and Eminem -- making IZOD Center one of the top concert venues in the country.

The Arena has received multiple industry awards since opening in 1981, including the "Prime Site Award" from Facilities and Event Management magazine; it was named "ARENA OF THE YEAR" a record eight times by Performance magazine and voted "#1 Grossing Arena in North America " by Amusement Business in 1999.

It's always wall-to-wall THRILLS AND CHILLS at the IZOD Center. It's not just the sporting events that keep this place packed. With corporate events and family shows including Disney on Ice, Harlem Globetrotters, Sesame Street Live, WWE, Champions On Ice and Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, we make sure kids of all ages stay on the edge of their seats.

More than 54 million people have attended nearly 5,000 events at the IZOD Center since it opened in 1981.

11-13-07 at IZOD was crazy. That #41 with Krasno was one of the best performances of the song I've heard, and definitely the best from that year (fuck John Mayer).

I forgot to request tickets to MSG, so I might end up at IZOD if I can't get tickets...actually, I forgot to request IZOD tickets too. Oops.

02-24-2009, 11:42 AM
I would tailgate at Giants Stadium and not in the parking garage. That's were we did it in 2007 and it was perfect. Very little people there all day and tons of room. I think once the parking garages are filled overflow goes to giants. So around show time it'll fill up pretty quickly.

Getting out of the garage is a nightmare. You're much better off parking at the stadium

That's a great idea....how far is the walk from the stadium to IZOD? And is it easier getting out of Giants than the area around IZOD?

it's not a far walk at all. I would say 10-15 mins max, there is a covered walk way that leads you to IZod so it's not like you'll get lost.

When we went we passed maybe 3 venue people trying to get us to park into a lot and we had to keep saying that we wanted to park at the stadium and they let us go through. We could have entered the area at the wrong spot though as it was our first time there and we just followed the IZod signs.

Not a long walk at all. Maybe ten minutes. Much easier to get out of the stadium lots as there will only be about 3-4K people parked there as opposed to 15K at IZOD

Izod is going to be the dark horse/sleeper show of the spring tour. Its not getting the praise and hype because its sandwhiched between the opener at MSG and the homecoming C'ville shows. However, Dmb always gives a great performance at the meadowlands.

This is definitely one of the uglier arenas that is still utilized. Hard to believe it isn't even that old compared to the standard lifeline these places have. I'll be going though and it should be a good time. Would've been cool to do a show at the new Prudential Center (even tho no tailgating). I'm more upset Philly got no love. With the Spectrum being demolished soon it'd of been a cool environment.

Only thing I don't like about this is the drive from Scranton, PA. The exit from Rt. 3 is the worst thing I've ever had the unpleasant task of driving through. It's a right exit that takes you around Rt. 3 and you've got to quickly merge across 2 lanes and into ANOTHER exit. Have they fixed this yet?

this venue is indoors right? it is the former Continental Airlines Arena right?

I havent been to this venue since Listener Supported in 99. I have tickets in the middle of the floor. I hope I will be able to see but really I dont care.

Has anyone NOT gotten their tickets for this show?

I bought a pair on the WH boards about a month ago, and I've been e-mailing the guy but he hasn't gotten back to me since last week. I'm kind of flipping out since they were my GF's XMas present.

I wouldn't freak yet. Friday, yes.

I got mine directly from the WH and they just came yesterday via UPS. So chances are, the person you bought them from just got them either yesterday or today.

I just wish he wasn't being terse in his e-mails. I have no reason not to believe the guy, but I have a bad feeling.

Ask him if he could send you the WH UPS Tracking Number. I can't see that being a problem. If he has a problem with it, I'd become concerned.

Good idea. I just e-mailed him asking for this.

If he has a problem, he can go fuck himself. I paid for these tickets, they're mine.

Exactly...if he has your money, you have the right to get the tracking number. Not like it's protected information.

Update: I e-mailed the Warehouse and this idiot has his account set to will call.

I basically demanded he give me my money back or find a way to change the name on the will call. But I haven't heard from him yet. I'm hoping if I don't hear from him that I can get my money back.

Was it always set to will call, or did your email prompt them to change him to will-call? :orly

I already bought another pair, and I told this guy I want my money back. I'm not expecting anything, but if he doesn't get back to me, I'm gonna call the Warehouse. At least they could shut him down.

Yeah, I suppose that's true, but I don't know, that seemed like a dick move, to me. I would have waited a little bit longer, at least for him to tell you he wouldn't give a tracking number.

Good to know there are still decent people in the DMB community. Or at least people that aren't utter morons.

Bought a pair from a dude at Ants, and he already shipped them. What a contrast.

Oh, I understand completely that point of view, and my friend told me as much. But the line of "conversation" I've had with this guy has been completely one-sided since he got my payment.

So I'm overreacting, but it's not like he hasn't given me a reason.

Weren't great. 128 or something. Pair I just bought are better.

I sent the guy an e-mail and asked for my money back if he doesn't want to attempt to switch the name at will call. Nothing confrontational. I figure three things can happen:

1) He can pay me back
2) He can switch the name, and I sell for below-face at the arena
3) I get dicked

But at least I have tickets.

The Warehouse told me this order had always been set for will call, meaning they didn't switch it. So, whether or not it was intentionally, I was misled. Especially since he charged me shipping.

It was kind of a dick move, but there's no reason for him to act like that so it isn't like he didn't have it coming. When you buy or sell tickets, I think there is an inherent responsibility to be nice, responsive and keep the buyer informed on shipping since he/she has sent you money based purely on trust that they'll receive the goods without much recourse. Fuck him.

EDIT: If its always been set to will call then there was no dick move. Seems apparent that he sold you the tickets and then found out he was will called (even though he should have known he'd be will called based on the past), then freaked and decided to just ignore you because he didn't know what to tell you.

Guy just got back to me. Said it took him forever because he was scrambling to not only switch the name on these tickets, but to switch the names on three OTHER pairs he sold.

I totally believe him, I apologized for making a big stink, but hey, everyone's happy now. I figure if I didn't do this, three other people would be fucked.

So is the WH just going to allow him to resell his tickets like that and change the names on 3 pairs of will-called seats?

Apparently. They told me that if he provided a PayPal receipt, he could switch the Will Call names.

It's still kind of shady, isn't it?

But I heard directly from the WH that he could do that. What I'm looking for now is a way to confirm that the transaction went through, and they're actually will-called in my name. I'm thinking of calling both IZOD and the WH.

I don't see a problem with it...if you are will called and can't go to a show that you ordered a few months prior, you shouldn't have to eat the tickets. However if it was a system like Pearl Jam where everyone was will called, then that is a different story. You know going in that you have no chance to change the names on these tickets so you'd better be sure you can make it.
