This was my first time to Philips Arena, and I was disappointed that I would be sitting so high up in the 300 Level. But boy did I luck out being in Row S. This row was at the top of section and really close to the concourse tunnel. This meant we were the first ones to restrooms and concessions between acts and didn't have to stand in long lines.
More importantly, being close to the concourse meant we didn't have to walk down the ridiculously steep stairs. Especially if you have younger ones, you might think that you want to be father down, but that's not the case. You want to be higher up. I saw many unhappy parents carrying their petrified children up and down the stairs and it wasn't a pleasant sight.
Back to my seats, they were pretty darn good for budget seats. There was a clear view of the entire stage and everything Imagine Dragons was doing on this night. The lights were really awesome and added to the intensity of the show! About half the people in our area were standing, and we chose not to stand until the end.
Definitely good for cheap concert tickets at Philips, but if you've got the cash, head down to the Lower Level.
Between each section in the upper level, there is a rail that goes up about two feet higher than the normal rail. I know it's there so that people coming down the (super-steep) stairs don't fall and topple over, but it's really a buzzkill for front row seats on the aisle.
I would definitely try to get Lower Level tickets next time or tickets closer to the top of the section. Even though the top of the section is farther away, the view would be better and I wouldn't have to walk a mile down to Row A. There are about 20 rows, but people were seriously having panic attacks walking down the stairs because of how steep they are.
Choose a higher row or avoid the Upper Level altogether.
I was curious about these seats since they were a lot cheaper than side view seats on the same level. They were marked as limited view, but it really wasn't that bad. Sure, you're looking at the back of the performers most of the time, but you don't get blocked by the equipment. If I was three or four rows higher, it might have been an issue. But being in Row E wasn't a problem.
You do have to walk down quite a few stairs to get to this row, so it's probably best to grab snacks and go to the bathroom before getting to your seats. You don't want to have to get up and down too many times.
Overall, if these seats are available again and there is a large price discrepancy between these and the side view tickets, I'd probably opt for these and save the money.
