Best Seats For a Concert at Barclays Center
The most common seating layout at Barclays Center for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 1, Section 3 and Section 4. For many concerts there are also slight variations to the layout, which may include General Admission seats, fan pits and B-stages.
On the Floor: Sections Floor 1, Floor 2, Floor 3 and Floor 4 are Floor Seats, which offer some of the closest views of the performers. For many concerts, floor sections are added or removed. These performer-specific adjustments may alter the floor layout and the views from each floor section.
To the Side of the Stage: For close views of the stage with a little bit of elevation, consider seats to the side of the stage in Section 6, Section 7, Section 8 and Section 9. The view is not head-on like on the floor, but many of the seats are closer to the stage, provide better elevation and are actual stadium seats.
Head-on to the Stage: Seats directly across from the stage, like those in Section 15, Section 16, Section 17 and Section 115 provide the most comfortable looks of the performance. Even upper level sections offer unobstructed sitelines. Just keep in mind that you won't be able to see as much detail from these seats as you would if you sat closer to the stage.
Consider the Following When Buying Concert Tickets
Seats behind the stage are occassionally sold: Unless your main objective is to just get in the building, you'll want to completely avoid anything behind the stage - like those in/near or above sections Section 1, Section 3, Section 4 and Section 28. It's unlikely the performer will turn around to salute you - and you're more likely to be completely blocked out from seeing the show.
If you're on the shorter side (or bringing kids), consider floor seats only in the first few rows: The most common complaint amongst floor ticketholders is that they can't see the stage because of taller people in front of them. As an alternative, consider side sections near the stage that will still have you close and high enough to see.
Lower level side sections are not created equal: While the side sections closest to the stage are top-notch, side sections farther from the stage may leave you with a cramp in your neck. Sections 9 and 23 are not well-angled towards the stage - leaving you to turn your head for an ideal view. Instead, consider head-on sections in the lower level or even close side seats in the upper level like Sections 126 and 106.
Corner seating won't have the same desirable mid-court views as the center sections on the lower level, but will provide relief from the viewing obstructions caused by the baskets in the baseline sections.
Great options for Nets fans can be found in the northwest corner (Sections 3-6), where fans will be near the team bench, and also have some of the closest seats to the entry tunnel where the Nets enter and exit the court. Conversely, Brooklyn supporters will be better off avoiding Sections 26-29 where the basket can block the view of the players on the bench.
Lower Endzone (Basketball) Seating
You can find better views elsewhere on the lower seating tier, but seats behind the baskets are usually the most affordable for sitting close to the action. It will be difficult to prevent the basket impeding some of the view in these sections, and your best option is to avoid the seats directly behind the basket which are the lower numbered seats in Section 1, the higher numbered seats in Section 31, and seats 7-12 in Section 16.
Entry tunnels are located at the top of the sections, providing the easiest concourse and seat access for the fans sitting in Row 15 and higher. Handicap accessible seating can be found at the back of Sections 16 and 31.
Lower Sideline (Basketball) Seating
Center court seats on the lower level of the Barclays Center are tough to beat for fans looking for a great all around experience at a basketball game. If you're looking to sit close we recommend Sections 7-9 where you'll be near the team benches, but if you prefer higher row seating on the lower tier, opt for sections 23-25 where you can enjoy a head on view of the players on the bench.
Fans at the front will have impressively close views, but with the entry tunnels located at the very top of the sections (which feature up to 27 rows), the close views come at the price of a long walk to and from the concourse. We recommend Rows 15 and higher here as the elevated views let you see all areas of the court with ease, and trips to the concourse are far more convenient with less rows to traverse between the seats and the entry tunnel.
The majority of rows feature 18 seats in each, and handicap accessible seating can also be found at the top of most sections.
Middle Corner (Basketball) Seating
Middle Level Corner sections sit just above the lower level corner entry tunnels, keeping fans on the main seating tier but closer to the very top. Views from this height and perspective allow you enjoy the game with minimal head turning, but the real benefit from sitting here is the ease of access.
Each section features no more than 9 rows of seating, and with the entry tunnels located just below the front row, you'll never be left with a long walk to visit the concourse. The best options for Nets fans will be either Sections 102-106 which are closest to the Nets bench, or in the southeast corner where Sections 118-122 provide the clearest, head-on views of the team on the bench.
Fans who prefer to socialize should stick to Sections 102 and 104 where you'll be close to the Eighteen76 and Foxwoods bars, while those bringing the family to a game might want to opt for Sections 118 or 120 where you'll be close to the Sweet Factory and merchandise stands.
Middle Endzone (Basketball) Seating
With the Loge Boxes occupying the area behind the baskets near the top of the lower level, the Middle Level Baseline sections are available only at the east end of the Barclays Center. These sections are accessed from the main concourse level, but fans will walk up to their seats after entering through the tunnel.
Section 115 is often reserved for members of the Press, making it rare that you'll find reserved seating for the general public. This leaves just Section 117 as the only commonly available option in this location. The smaller seating area (just 9 rows of seating) provides easy and convenient access to and from the seats, however the views are not particularly desirable from behind the basket.
Middle Sideline (Basketball) Seating
Technically on the lower seating level, the middle tier sections sit just beyond the lowest tier offering a great viewing height and excellent overall views especially in the sections closest to center court.
Each Middle Level Center section features just 6 rows of seating, starting with Row 4 at the very front and ending at Row 9 in back. The small seating areas, close proximity to entry tunnels, and mid court viewing angles make these seats a fantastic option for die hard fans who want to spend the most time watching the game, and the least amount of time making trips to and from the seats.
If you have the option, we recommend Sections 123-125 over those on the opposite side as you'll have a head on view of the players on the team benches, rather than just being able to see their names and numbers on the back of the jerseys.
Upper Baseline (Basketball) Seating
Sitting behind the baskets on the upper seating tier will be one of the best place to find cheap tickets at the Barclays Center for a basketball game. Fans can find better views in other areas where the basket doesn't block as much of the view, but these sections are also among the smallest on the higher level (no more than 13 rows in each) making the steep aisles a bit less scary to navigate.
Unlike the center court and side sections on the upper tier, the entry tunnels are further up in the baseline sections, located just above Row 7. Sections 201 and 202 are the best options for Nets fans with close proximity to the team bench and tunnel where the players enter and exit the court.
Restrooms and specialty concessions on the upper level are concentrated more towards the center sections, so fans behind the baskets should be prepared for a longer walk to visit the restrooms or grab a bite to eat.
Upper Corner (Basketball) Seating
Corner sections on the upper seating tier can be home to both good value for watching a basketball game, as well as some of the worst seats in the Barclays Center.
If at all possible, we strongly recommend avoiding Sections 205, 211, 221, and 227. The views from these sections will be some of the furthest (especially in the back rows), and the seats closer to center court will have you awkwardly facing straight ahead creating a difficult head turn to see the far basket.
On the flip side, you can find some good seats for being on the upper level in Sections 204, 212, 220, and 228. Tickets are more affordable, the seats point nicely towards center court for a comfortable view, and with no more than 15 rows in each section and entry tunnels just above Row 7, you'll never be left with a long walk to the concourse.
Upper Sideline (Basketball) Seating
Seats near center court will usually be among the most expensive on the Barclays upper seating tier, but will have some of the best views on the highest level of seating. Sections 223 and 225 are the best options here thanks to their head on views of the team benches, and you'll want to find higher numbered seats in Section 223 or lower numbered seats in Section 225 for the closest positioning to center court.
While the views from the Upper Level Center are some of the best from the higher tier, these sections are also some of the largest (up to 22 rows in each), and also have steep aisles running up from the entry tunnels. Fans bringing the family will want to stay near the entry tunnels (located between Rows 2 and 5) to avoid a nerve racking walk to the seats.
Handicap accessible seating is available in Row 2 of each section here, just in front as you enter the section from the upper level concourse.
