The BB&T Pavilion is an outdoor amphitheater/indoor theater complex in Camden, New Jersey, United States, located in the Camden Waterfront entertainment district on the Delaware River across from Philadelphia.


The BB&T Pavilion opened in June 1995 as the Blockbuster-Sony Music Entertainment Centre (or E-Centre). In 2001, the amphitheater was renamed the Tweeter Center at the Waterfront. Susquehanna Bank purchased the naming rights in 2008. On the date July 26, 2002, the band Weezer played their biggest concert of all time at the Susquehanna Bank Center, with a crowd of 15,000 people paying to see the band perform. After Winston-Salem based BB&T bank bought Susquehanna Bank August 1, 2015, the amphitheater will be known as BB&T Pavilion.


The year-round facility serves as a 25,000 capacity outdoor amphitheater during the summer months which features a lawn with video screens, computerized sound enhancement, and a clear view of the Philadelphia skyline, Delaware River, and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge to the northwest. In the fall and winter months, the BB&T Pavilion converts to a fully enclosed, climate-controlled, flexible-capacity theater for up to 7,000 people offering a variety of concerts, Broadway theatrical productions, and family entertainment.

The BB&T Pavilion is adjacent to the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial, Wiggins Park, and the Adventure Aquarium.
