Parents might have a place to stay while their children attend concerts at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel.The concert promoter plans to create special "parent zones" as part of an effort to curb underage drinking.

Lawmakers held a hearing in Trenton today after two men died and more than 600 people were arrested at the amphitheater last summer.

Tailgating will be banned at the 311, O.A.R., John Mayer, Beatstock and Projekt Revolution shows.

State Sen. Joseph Kyrillos says the New Jersey Turnpike Authority should also look at breaking its 21-year contract with promoter Live Nation.
