    Decent view from Section 301!

    Concert Review
    Section 301, Row 9, Seats 5-7

    We’ve never been inside Staples Center and was worried these would be terrible seats. We saw the Bruno Mars concert on 10/27/2018. The seats were decent for the price. You can see the performers on the stage and the large projector screens helped but you lose the sight lines of the left back half of the stage (as you face the stage - this was specific to the BM’s stage set). The stage also had a set of speakers that hung down on the front left and right of the stage which partially blocked the view. However, the sound was amazing! It was also nice to be close to the aisle and the tunnel leading to/out of seats. If we were to see another concert and had to choose the 300-level again, we’d probably go closer to the center, like the 304-306 sections and likewise on the opposite side of the arena as you had a more straight-on view of the stage.

    Worst seat in the house?!

    Concert Review
    Section 301, Row 4, Seat 3

    I thought I'd be getting a great spot on the aisle and in the lower rows of a 300 level section which wasn't all that far from the stage, but I quickly realized this could be one of the worst possible places to sit for a concert at Staples Center. A metal hand railing and glass safety partition could not possibly be in a more perfect position to block my view of the center of the stage. Sure I was on the aisle and super close to the section entry tunnel which was great for restroom trips and grabbing a beer, but it came at a pretty steep cost of not being able to see the performance at the central part of the stage.

    Don’t get scammed like me! The worst view :(

    Basketball Review
    Section 301, Row 3, Seat 25

    I did my research before attending the basketball match, checked numerous seating maps but it was not possible to know that this seat will have obstruction in front of me and my view at the court would be compromised this much :(( I could not enjoy the game at all… And I traveled to LAX from Europe so for me to see Los Angeles Lakers play was once in a lifetime experience which was ruined tremendously. Don’t buy a ticket for this seat (I bought it from the official ticket marketplace online)!!!

    High, but good for the price I paid!

    They were good for the price I paid and you can see everything.

    • 300 Level


      The 300 Level at Arena is also known as the Upper Concourse. This is the highest area in the stadium and usually has the cheapest ticket prices. These sections have up to 15 rows of seats with the entrance to each section at Row 3. We highly recommend paying a little extra to sit in a lower row. The views are much better and accessing Upper Concourse amenities is more convenient. Best 300 Level Seats  The best seats in the 300 Level will depend on the type of event you are attending. For Lakers and Clippers games, sideline sections have the best view of the court. Meanwhile, sections on the ends will be somewhat obstructed by the basket. For most concerts, sections 319 and 334 are closest to the stage and have a better-than-expected view. Conversely, the highest rows in corner sections have the worst views. Finally, for Kings games we recommend sitting in the lowest row possible in any section. Whether you're along the side, in the corner, or behind the net, you'll be able to comfortably follow the action. The Kings shoot twice towards sections 321-332, making these popular among home fans. 300 Level Complaints A large block of Suites separates the lower seating bowl from this level. As a result, some fans complain that these sections are too high up and removed from the action. To avoid this issue, purchase tickets in a low row or avoid this area altogether.

      (Section 319) - -

      Despite being in the upper level, my nephew and I still had a great time. The seats were just right for us. We could see what was happening in the whole court yet still be able to see the players clearly!

    • "Great overall seats"

      (Section 318) - -

      Great view, better than expected. Only draw backs are since you are up high you don't have a chance to get freebies thrown into the crowd and seat 29 is an aisle seat so a lot of getting up to let people pass. There is a little ledge in front of you to put your drink and phone on. Would sit here aga...
