Adams At The Rock

Dale Adams been hired by AEG as the GM for the new 19,500-capacity Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., which is set to open in October.

He has definitely had a change in latitude after running the 18,000-seat Coliseo de Puerto Rico in San Juan, which was awarded Pollstar’s International Large Venue honor for 2005.

The Prudential Center likely has a good family show "in" with Adams, who spent four years managing "Disney On Ice" and six years at Feld Entertainment as the director of North American routing and tours.
