Live Nation to Book Concert Series for American Dream Complex Outside NYC

Ludacris, J.I., Two Friends, Lil Tjay, Sheck Wes and Band-Maid are set to perform the first season at the Meadowlands facility.

American Dream, the indoor retail center and theme park complex located just outside of New York City, has secured a multi-year partnership for Live Nation to book exclusive live concerts and live events.

Located at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey near Met Life Stadium and home to the Nickelodeon Universe theme park, the DreamWorks Water Park, an NHL-regulation ice rink known as The Rink and the Big Snow American Dream indoor ski slope, the American Dream is a 3 million square foot entertainment complex that first partially opened in 2019. Now fully opened, the center will include Live Nation booked on its main stage along with unique live experiences like fan-to-artist activations, pop-up shops, launch parties for new music releases and upcoming tours.


“We see a lot of potential here at American Dream to showcase a diverse lineup of entertainment options designed to enhance the customer experience and drive new audiences to the entertainment and retail center,” says Geoff Gordon, regional president for Live Nation Northeast.

“American Dream provides guests with experiences that can’t be found anywhere else, like the incredibly popular amusement park takeover concert series we’ve created,” said Don Ghermezian, CEO of American Dream. “A partnership with Live Nation takes our property to a new level.”

The inaugural concert series begins with hip-hop star Ludacris on May 7, followed by J.I. on June 17, Two Friends on June 18, Lil Tjay on July 22, Sheck Wes on August 13 and Band-Maid on October 30. More artists will be added to the series in the coming months. Ticket go on sale on April 8 at 10 a.m.  EST at
