The most common seating layout at BOK Center for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 113, Section 114 and Section 115. 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 110, Section 111 and Section 120. 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.
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 113, Section 114, Section 115 and Section 116. 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 101 and 108 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 314 and 326.
There are two sets of sections behind the baskets. in the lower level of the BOK Center. In the first eleven rows behind courtside seating are lower baseline sections 4, 5, 9 and 10. Rows in these sections are lettered with Row A closest to the court. The biggest drawback to these sections is that the seating is flat, which may make it difficult for smaller fans to see the court.
More traditional riser seating can be found in sections 104, 105, 115 and 116. The first row in each of these sections is also labeled A, though that row is actually about 15 rows from the court. if you're attending a long day of tournament basketball, you may want to consider sitting near the top of the section (Row X) where you will have near-instant access to concessions and other amenities.
Lower Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
When looking at corner sections in the lower level, pay close attention to which section your are purchasing. If you are buying seats for a long day of NCAA Tournament action, you may want to skip out on sections like 101, 108, 112 and 119. These seats have a very poor angle towards and court and will require you to turn your head sharply to see the action. This is a literal pain in the neck for many fans.
A more comfortable alternative exists in the upper rows of other corner sections where your view will be better-angled towards the court and where you'll be just a few steps away from concourse amenities.
Lower Level Side (Basketball) Seating
The best views at BOK Center for basketball games come from sections 110 and 121. These sections are located directly at center court and will offer unobstructed sitelines to both baskets.
In each sideline section, Row A is closest to the court and is located directly behind courtside seats. Each section contains fewer than 25 rows of seating with Row X being closest to the lower level concourse.
Ticket prices in Section 110 often exceed those in all other sections due to their status as premium seats. Fans in this section (along with half of 109 and half of 111) will be seated on over-sized, extra-comfortable chairs.
Upper Level Baseline (Basketball) Seating
Sections 305-307 and 319-321 are often among the cheapest tickets for basketball games at the BOK Center. These sections are located behind the baskets in the highest level of seating.
These sections contain up to 25 rows of seating each, which makes them incredibly large by upper level standards. To avoid far-away views and dis-interest in the game, we recommend spending the extra money to be as close to the front of the section as possible. We'd also prefer to avoid Sections 306 and 320 altogether - given their position directly behind the baskets.
Upper Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
When looking for cheap tickets to the NCAA Tournament - or any other basketball game at the BOK - you'll probably be searching through seats in the 300 level. In particular, corner sections are typically priced among the cheapest seats.
When looking at these corner sections, aim first for sections 317, 318, 322 and 323. The front rows in these sections (numbered rows) are lower down than the rest of the 300 level - placing you slightly closer to the court. Additionally, the face value of these tickets is cheaper than adjacent corner sections like 324 and 325.
As with all seats in the upper deck, the lower you sit, the better. There is a significant difference between sitting in the first and last rows in these sections.
Upper Level Side (Basketball) Seating
The most affordable way to get a sideline view at BOK Center is to sit in sections 312-314 and 326-328 in the upper level. These sections run from baseline-to-baseline and offer unobstructed views of the court.
Rows A-C in Sections 326-328 are the best seats in this seating zone. They are located at the front of their respective sections and come with a head-on view of the stadium's scoreboard. Reserved accesible seating is located directly behind these rows.
BOK Center is one of the largest arenas not hosting an NHL or NBA team. Given its size, it is important to sit in one of the lower rows if you are purchasing 300 level tickets. Fans in upper rows often complain about long walks and poor views.
