Venue Information

Asbury Park Convention Hall is a 3,600-seat indoor arena located on in Asbury Park, New Jersey on the boardwalk and beach of the Atlantic Ocean. It was built in 1923 and is used for sports, concerts and other special events.

Like much of Asbury Park, Convention Hall has fallen into partial disrepair over the years but still retains some of its charms. In particular, it is known for having no heating in the winter (causing the Jersey Squires basketball team to flee) and no air conditioning in the summer. Events are held there nonetheless, with large audiences providing warmth when needed and hot-weather events held early in the morning in some cases.

Beginning in the late 1990s Convention Hall gained a strong association with Bruce Springsteen. He held rehearsals for upcoming tours there (with fans standing outside to get early ideas of what the shows would bring), some ticketed public rehearsal shows, and several December holiday shows in conjunction with The Max Weinberg 7. The large lighted sign on the top of Convention Hall now reads "Greetings from Asbury Park", in reference to Springsteens 1973 debut album Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J..
