Best Seats For a Concert at CHI Health Center Omaha
The most common seating layout at CHI Health Center Omaha for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 101, Section 102 and Section 124. 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 A, Floor B, Floor C and Floor D 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 103, Section 104 and Section 122. 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 101, Section 102, Section 124 and Section 125. 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 107 and 120 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 203 and 223.
The seats behind the baskets on the lower level of seating form the Lower Level Baseline seating location.
This location is close to the action but will not have great views because of the basket that obstructs much of the view. It would be a good idea to try and sit closer to the center of the court if you want to have a good view of the entire game. It may even be worth it to sit on a higher level if you can sit closer to the middle because the views from there will likely still be better.
If you would rather be close to the action and do not care as much about the view then this area is the perfect place for you.
Lower Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
The Lower Level Corner seating location is close to the action on the lowest level of seating but does not have the best angle to see the game. The basket may obstruct some of the views on the near side of the court and the opposite end may seem like it is far away and difficult to see.
Despite these potential flaws, this is still a good area to sit because you will be close to the action and being able to experience basketball from up close is a very enjoyable experience. The views from this location will be better than those behind the basket but sitting closer to center court would improve the views even more.
Lower Level Sideline (Basketball) Seating
Along both sidelines on the lowest level of seating is the Lower Level Side seating location. This location is home to some of the best seats in the stadium due to their close proximity to the action and center court.
Tickets in this area are likely to be some of the most expensive in the stadium, but are worth it if you are looking for one of the best views or if you want to impress a guest.
Upper Level Baseline (Basketball) Seating
Along the baselines of the highest level of seating is the Upper Level Baseline seating location. This location is not a great place to sit to watch a game. You are far away from the action and behind the basket, which will most likely obstruct some of your views of the near basket.
Fans who are looking to sit in some of the best seats should consider somewhere else to sit to watch the game. This area is best for fans that are on a tight budget but still want to attend a basketball game at the CenturyLink Center.
Upper Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
High in the corners of the CenturyLink Center on the top level of seating is the Upper Level Corner seating location. This location is not a great place to sit to watch a game. You are far away from the action in the corner of the arena and the angle from the corner is not ideal.
Fans who are looking to sit in some of the best seats should consider somewhere else to sit to watch the game. This area is best for fans that are looking to save some money and still attend a basketball game.
Upper Level Side (Basketball) Seating
The Upper Level Side seating location has decent views of the action but puts fans far away from the action. This is a good alternative to lower level seats behind the basket because viewers in this location will have an unobstructed view of the entire court throughout the game.
These seats may have good views but being this far away from the court does take away from the experience of being at basketball game. This is the trade-off that fans must decide when choosing where to sit for a game.
