    Lots of energy near band

    Basketball Review
    Section 309, Row 10, Seat 2

    It's hard to find a cheap seat these days to see Lebron and The Lakers but the 300 level section usually isn't too bad. The view is pretty tough from behind the basket such as within section 309. From here, it is very difficult to see if the ball is making it through the hoop or rimming out. When the teams were attacking this nearest basket, I was practically relegated to watch the jumbotron in order to catch what was going on. One added bonus was that I was directly next to the Staples Center band which plays in the front of section 308. The band would often fill in down time and help start chants to get the Lakers pumped up. I'd absolutely prefer to sit in the lower bowl but these aren't terrible considering the money I saved and energy felt next to the hype band.

    Stage straight ahead with easy access to the seats

    Concert Review
    Section 309, Row 2, Seat 1

    My seat had a great straight on view of the stage, and while far compared to many of the other seating options, it didn't feel all that distant from the stage. The straight away views kept everything right in front with no obstructions down to the center of the performance. The elevated perspective also made it easy to see over the general admission standing sections in front of the stage. From the entry tunnel to the section, you can either walk down two steps to Row 1, or up the steps to the higher rows, but Row 2 is right there at the entrance, making it a breeze to run to the concourse to visit the restrooms or concessions.

    • 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 311) - -

      There are only two rows of seating in the main part of this section as lower portions appear to be reserved for handicap accessible seating. I was in Row 7 which was the back row above the handicap seating, and was just three seats off the aisle at my right. With no one behind, I could stretch out...
