Best Seats For a Concert at Little Caesars Arena
The most common seating layout at Little Caesars Arena for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 101, Section 102 and Section 103. 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 107, Section 108 and Section 123. 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 103 and Section 104. 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 111 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 210 and 228.
The Red Wings shoot twice towards the net in front of Sections 110 and 111. Along with nearby sections, these seats will give you the best views of the Red Wings as they attack in the first and third periods.
To search tickets in these seating areas, select an event and apply the corresponding filter.
Corner sections on the lower tier of Little Caesars Arena can offer some good views for a basketball game, but not all seats are created equal here. The further beyond the baseline you get, the more your overall viewing experience will deteriorate due the impact of trying to see through the basket.
Fans will want to target the corner sections closest to the middle of the court where the basket has the least impact on your viewing angles (sections 106, 112, 119, and 125). The one downfall to these options is the straight ahead seating position, which has you looking directly across the floor and requiring a larger head turn to see the far end of the court. Sight lines become more comfortable and natural as you move further beyond the baseline, but at the price of the basket having a greater impact on the view.
Corner sections are slightly larger than the neighboring sideline options, as seating can run as high as row 27. Entry tunnels are available at the top of each section here, leaving the longest walks to and from the concourse for the fans closest to the floor.
100 Level End (Basketball) Seating
If you're looking for the most affordable lower level tickets for a basketball game at Little Caesars Arena, chances are you might be searching in the end sections behind the baskets. Prices are often more reasonable here, however fans should be aware of the challenges that come with sitting behind one of the nets.
Seating begins with lettered rows A-K closest to the floor, which are setup on risers that extend the permanent seating sections. These riser seats will have you closer to the action on the floor, but it is important to note that there will also be less elevation between seating rows, creating a larger chance that a taller fan just in front will impact your view.
For better height over the seating rows in front, search for tickets in rows 13 and higher as these will offer a less shallow incline compared to the rows closer to the floor. Sitting higher in the section also allows for easier trips to and from the concourse, which can be accessed at the top of these 26 row sections.
Whenever possible, we advise fans to avoid the higher numbered seats in sections 102 and 115, as well as the lower numbered seats in sections 103 and 116. These seats would put you closest to the aisle directly behind the baskets, where the views are the most frustrating.
100 Level Sideline (Basketball) Seating
Sitting in the sideline sections of the 100 level offers some of the best views a fan could want during basketball game at Little Caesars Arena. All seats here keep you between the baselines which provides a more traditional viewing angle, and you will never need to worry about the basket impacting your line of sight.
On the west sideline (sections 120-124), fans will be closer to the team benches and scorers table. The best spots for Pistons fans will be either section 120 or 121 which are closer to the home team bench, while sections 123-124 are better suited for the opposing fans due the proximity to the visiting team bench. Seats on the east sideline are further from the benches, but do provide a more ideal head on angle to the players when they're not on the court.
Sections on the 100 Level Sideline feature no more than 24 numbered rows of seating in each, with concourse entry tunnels available at row 18. Optimal views can be found when sitting in rows 10-18 as these seats provide good seating height above floor level, while keeping you at our below the entryway tunnel.
200 Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
Sitting in the corners of the upper seating tier is best suited for fans looking for the cheaper ticket options at a Little Caesars Arena basketball game. Being on the upper tier will create more distant views, and as these seats are beyond the baselines, you run the risk of the basket impacting your view.
For the Pistons fans, we recommend searching in sections 222-224 at the southwest corner of the arena as these will keep you closer to the home team bench than any other corner seating option. Conversely, visiting team fans should prioritize the northwest corner (sections 229-231) as these will be closer to the opponent bench.
Corner sections on the 200 level have between 11 and 12 numbered rows of seating in each. Entry tunnels are located at Row 2, and we recommend fans search in the first 4 rows to provide easier access to and from the seats.
Although the overhanging Gondola seats and Press Box are not as prevalent in the corner as in the neighboring sideline sections, we recommend fans be careful when searching for tickets in sections 208-209, 214-215, 223-224, and 229-30. But if you are left searching among those options, be sure to stick to rows 5 and lower to limit potential issues with your view of the court.
200 Level End (Basketball) Seating
Fans in the 200 Level End sections will have a very different experience depending on which basket they are sitting behind for a basketball game at Little Caesars Arena.
Behind the south basket, you can often find the cheapest ticket prices available for a basketball game due to the distance from the court, lack of unique features, and undesirable viewing angle from behind the net. Sections here are also a bit larger than the north end, with as many as 12 numbered rows at each (entry tunnels are found close to the front of the section at row 2).
The experience is a bit different at the the north end though, most notably due to the presence of the North End Club (also known as the Labatt Blue Club). The views will be very similar as those found at the south end, but north end ticket holders will be near the multi level club lounge (sections 201-205), which offers more to keep fans entertained.
200 Level Sideline (Basketball) Seating
Although located on the furthest seating tier from the floor, the 200 Level Sideline sections are home to a number of seats which offer very good value for taking in a basketball game at Little Caesars Arena.
Sections 211-212 and 226-227 are among the best in this seating zone thanks to the center court positioning, which provides good viewing angles to both the north and south baskets. Sitting closer to the corners in sections 210, 213, 225, or 228 won't put you terribly further from mid court, but you are left with a larger head turn to see the far end of the playing surface.
Entry tunnels are located near the front of the sections at row 2, leaving the best views and easiest walks for those in the closer seats. Sections are not very large here though (most having just 12 numbered rows), so even if you're in the cheaper seats furthest from the action, the trips to and from the concourse won't be too lengthy.
One of the more challenging aspects to selecting seats in the 200 Level Sideline seating zone is the potential for tunnel vision and limited sight lines caused by the overhanging structures above (Gondola seats above the west sideline, and Press Box above the east sideline). Whenever possible, stick to rows 5 and lower to avoid the less than ideal views which get narrower the higher you go.
Mezzanine Corner (Basketball) Seating
Corner seating on the Mezzanine level is a great spot to enjoy the optimal viewing height of the second seating tier, and will be more budget friendly than the neighboring sideline options. The smaller seating sections help to avoid long walks between the seats and the concourse, and being in the corner of the arena allows you to limit those more difficult views which can be common when sitting directly behind the baskets.
Most Mezzanine sections feature no more than 5 numbered rows of seating in each, with drink rail standing areas at the very top row. We recommend being careful when when considering the drink rail ticket options as the views of the court are limited.
Mezzanine sections 5 and 34 are a bit more unique here though, as they feature 5 additional lettered rows of seating which extend closer to the floor than the numbered rows. Seats in these lettered rows offer an interesting experience as they sit lower in the arena and beside a private suite, however the basket will become more a viewing distraction due to being further from mid court.
Mezzanine End (Basketball) Seating
The most affordable of the Mezzanine options, seating sections here are a good option for fans who prioritize convenience over viewing experience. The majority of Mezzanine End sections have just 5 numbered rows in each, allowing you to move easily between your seat and the amenities on the concourse. At the north end of the arena, Mezzanine sections 1 and 4 are slightly larger and feature 5 additional numbered rows of seating at the very front.
To avoid sitting in the direct line behind the baskets, fans will want to search for the lower numbered seats in Mezzanine sections 2 and 19, and the higher numbered seats in Mezzanine sections 3 and 20. Doing so will ensure you don't get stuck on the aisle directly behind the basket, where your view can be very difficult for action at the near basket.
Standing drink rail tickets are often available at the top of most Mezzanine End seating, however fans should be aware that these tickets come with a limited view.
Mezzanine Sideline (Basketball) Seating
The Mezzanine Level sits on the smaller, more intimate second seating tier at Little Caesars Arena, and offers fans a very good viewing height without having to pay lower level prices.
These sideline sections are the spot to be if you're searching for tickets on the second tier Mezzanine level, as the majority of the seats will keep you between the baselines. Mezzanine sections 25-31 will put you closer to the team benches, but if you prefer a head on view to the benches, opt for the east sideline in Mezzanine sections 8-14.
Mezzanine sections are the smallest of any at Little Caesars Arena, with each one featuring no more than 5 rows of seating in each and making it a breeze to move between your seat and the concourse. Drink rail tickets are available at the top of most Mezzanine sections, but fans should be aware that these standing areas come with limited views of the court.
100 Level Corner (Concert) Seating
If you're attending an end stage show at Little Caesars Arena, corner seating on the lower 100 level will either have you right by the stage, or set further near the back of the floor area. Sections 106 and 125 are the options closest to an end stage setup, however careful selection of seat numbers becomes an important step in maximizing your experience.
If you're searching in section 106 for an end stage show, the higher numbered seats are where you'll want to be as they will put you closer to section 107. Being in the lower numbered seats here puts you at risk of being too far beyond the front of the stage, and thus limiting your view of the performance. Conversely, in section 125 fans will want to opt for the lower numbered seats where you get the better viewing angle and avoid behind the stage views.
At the far end of the floor, corner sections 112-113 and 118-119 offer less of a risk vs. reward experience, as most seats here will have a similar feel for an end stage show. We prefer seats in sections 113 and 118 over the closer options (112 and 119) much in part to the better natural angle to the stage and fewer seats per row.
100 Level End (Concert) Seating
Although the furthest of any option on the lower 100 level for a traditional end stage show, seats in the end sections offer intriguing value due to the lower tier seating height and head-on angles to the stage. Sections 115-116 give you the best alignment the center of an end stage show, while opting for section 114 or 117 will result in a minimal head turn.
Sections here typically have between 26-27 numbered rows in each, and entry tunnels located at the very top. To avoid sitting to low to the floor and help reduce the amount of walking between the seats and the concourse, we recommend searching in seating rows 10-20.
100 Level Side (Concert) Seating
Seats in the 100 level side sections are an excellent option for taking in an end stage show at Little Caesars Arena, especially if you prefer to not be on the floor. Seating here is configured in a typical stadium style layout, meaning you get elevation over the seats in front of you (something which you won't find when sitting on the floor).
Among the best options for watching an end stage show will be found in sections 107 and 124 thanks to the close proximity to the action. The views start to require a more noticeable head turn as you get further, with the seats in sections 111 and 120 having some of the more uncomfortable angles due to the seats being positioned directly across the floor (rather than pointed at the stage).
Sections here have as many as 24 rows of seating in each, and entry tunnels are located near row 18 for most. An additional bonus to these sections is that most feature small seating rows (no more than 10 seats in each row). The only larger rows are found in sections 109 and 122 which have as many as 20 seats per row.
200 Level Corner (Concert) Seating
Among the most affordable options for a concert at Little Caesars Arena, the 200 level corner sections are a good spot to search if you're just looking to get in the doors. Be cautious when searching in the upper rows of sections 214 and 224, as the overhanging Press Box (east side) and Gondolas (west side) can create limited views down to the floor.
For a safer option, stick to the lower rows of sections 222 or 216 which have a more comfortable angle to the performance for a traditional end stage configuration. Sections in the 200 level corner feature up between 11-12 rows of seating in each, with entry tunnels located at Row 2.
200 Level End (Concert) Seating
Seats at the far end of the 200 level will be some of the furthest options for taking in a show at Little Caesars Arena, but are also often the most affordable. For a traditional end stage performance, you will have a comfortable head-on viewing angle to the performance, however you will be watching from a distance.
Sections here have between 11-12 numbered rows of seating in each, with entry tunnels located near the front at row 2. Fans have commented that the 200 level is noticeably steep, so we recommend searching in rows 6 and lower to stay close to the entry tunnel and avoid longer walks up and down the aisle.
200 Level Side (Concert) Seating
Sections on the 200 level sides offer affordability without being terribly far from the action, however there are a few factors which fans should consider when searching for tickets among these seats.
The most notable pitfall to avoid is siting too high up where the overhanging structures (Gondolas on the west side of the arena, Press Box on the east side) create severe tunnel vision down to the stage. Fans have commented on this sub-optimal design which can have a drastic affect on the overall experience, so whenever possible. we recommend sticking to rows 5 and lower to avoid the complication.
Another seating choice to consider comes during traditional end stage performances and whether to choose seats in either section 210 or 228. These are among the closet of any on the upper 200 level, but getting the right seat number is important. In section 210, fans will want to be in the higher numbered seats (preferably seats 14 and higher) to be closer to section 211 and avoid those extreme side angle views. On the east side, the opposite is true in section 228 where the lower numbered seats are the better choice.
Mezzanine Corner (Concert) Seating
Corner seating on the Mezzanine level of Little Caesars Arena delivers on a smaller seating area (no more than 5 rows in each), and will be the more affordable option compared to being in the Mezzanine side sections. Drink rails at the top of most sections here offer a great spot to socialize and stay mobile should you prefer some room to dance, but be aware that the views from the rails are limited.
If you're looking to attend an end stage performance and aren't quite sure which Mezzanine corner option is best, we recommend giving some preference to Mezzanine sections 17 or 22 which will have a more natural viewing angle to the stage and also feature some of the fewest rows per section in the arena.
Mezzanine End (Concert) Seating
Looking for a comfortable and convenient spot to enjoy an end stage show at Little Caesars Arena? Begin your ticket search with the end sections on the Mezzanine level. Fans here enjoy comfortable straight away viewing angles of the end stage, while also having one of the more convenient spots for moving to and from the seats thanks to the smaller sections (no more than 5 rows in each).
Standing drink rails are found at the top of most sections on the Mezzanine End, offering a popular spot for socializing during a performance. Drink rail tickets are typically much more affordable, but fans should be aware ahead of time that the views from the rails are limited.
Mezzanine Level Side (Concert) Seating
Located on a small seating tier just below the 200 level, Mezzanine Side sections are a strong option if you prefer a more intimate atmosphere for a show at Little Caesars Arena. Sections here have no more than 5 rows of seating in each, and also feature standing drink rail options at the back of most sections. Drink rails are great for a more casual social atmosphere, but fans should be aware that views from the rail are considered limited.
If you're attending a show which features a traditional end stage configuration, you can't go wrong with searching in Mezzanine sections 9-10 and 29-30. These options are close to the stage and won't put you at risk of an extreme side angle view (which can be the case if sitting in Mezzanine sections 8 or 31).
100 Level Behind the Net (Hockey) Seating
Sitting behind the nets on the lower tier of Little Caesars Arena will offer a similar viewing experience from both the north and south ends, with good viewing angles for watching the cross ice movements throughout the game.
However fans will want to choose which end of the arena to sit at based on which team they are pulling for. South end sections (115-116) are nearest to the net where the Wings shoot twice, while the north end sections (102-103) are where the visitors will shoot twice.
Sections here have 26 numbered rows of seating in each with entry tunnels near the top of the sections. One unsung benefit to sitting behind the net is that you get a comfortable straight away line of sight which requires almost no head turning to follow the action on the ice.
100 Level Corners (Hockey) Seating
With the lower level sections near center ice offering more premium benefits and fetching a higher price tag, the corner sections here give fans a more affordable option on the first tier without being directly behind the net.
Wings fans will want to be in either sections 113-114 or 117-118 for the higher percentage chance of seeing a Detroit goal, and those bringing the kids could consider the lower rows of section 113 which is right beside the zamboni entrance.
Concourse entryways are located only at the top of the seating areas here, and with the sections having as many as 27 rows of seating, this leaves one of the longer walks to and from the seats for those sitting closest to the ice.
100 Level Sides (Hockey) Seating
Lower level seats along sides of the ice offer some of the best views for a hockey game at Little Caesars Arena, but can also be among the most expensive due to the abundance of premium seating.
Fans seated in the first 11 rows of sections 121-123 not only find themselves as close as it gets to the team benches, but will also be a part of the ultra exclusive and all-inclusive Players Club during Red Wings home games. Other premium perks can be found in rows 12 and higher of sections 121-123 which are known as the West Club seats, or on the opposite side of the arena in any row of section 108, 109, or 110 which make up the East Club seats.
For a more affordable outing, you will want to search in sections 106-107, 111-112, 119-120, or 124-125 as these seats don't come with any of the upscale benefits found in the seats closer to center ice. For the Wings fans, we recommend either section 110 or section 121 as you will be closer to the net where the home team shoots twice, and also have fewer seats per row than neighboring sections 112 and 119 allowing for easier access.
With the concourse entry tunnels being located near the top of most the sections here, we recommend giving strong consideration to rows 13-18 which provide short walks to restrooms and concessions, while providing an excellent viewing height of the ice without being too close where the boards can distort the action at the further end.
200 Level Behind the Net (Hockey) Seating
Although the viewing angles and distance from center ice will be similar from behind the net on both ends of the arena, fans will have a very different experience at the north versus the south.
On the south end, sections 217-221 will get Detroit fans closer to the net where the Red Wings shoot twice, providing a better opportunity of a decent view of a home team goal. Sections here have up to 12 numbered rows of seating, with entry tunnels at the very front.
The north end however is much more unique due to the Labatt Blue Club (also known as the North End Club). Fans sitting in sections 201-205 for a Red Wings game will have access to a multi level lounge with unique views of the ice, while those seated in section 206 or 232 will see some of the cheapest prices around as these seats do not come with club access. North end sections are also noticeably smaller with no more than 8 rows of seating in each.
200 Level Corners (Hockey) Seating
Corner seating on the 200 level of Little Caesars Arena offers some of the cheaper tickets a fan can find for a Detroit Red Wings hockey game. The views are more distant and the sight lines not as ideal as the neighboring side sections, which all combines to help keep ticket prices in the lower range.
Be careful when searching in sections 208-209, 214-215, 223-224, and 229-230 as the overhanging Gondola and Press Box will wreak havoc on your view if sitting any higher than row 5. Upper seating rows in sections 207, 216, 222, and 231 also get a bit of obstruction from the overhangs, but not as severe.
Sections here have between 11 and 12 numbered rows of seating in each, and entry tunnels are located just above row 1. It is also good to know that seating begins to feel very steep at the top of the 200 level, so we recommend sticking to the front few rows whenever possible.
200 Level Sides (Hockey) Seating
Fans can find some of the most affordable center ice views on the 200 level, however choosing the right seating row will have a big impact on your viewing experience.
On both sides of the arena you will have to contend with overhanging structures (Gondola seats on the west side, Press Box on the east) which begin to create a sense of tunnel vision in the higher rows. Stick with seats in rows 5 and below and you will have a much better overall experience than those in rows 6 and higher where the overhang narrows your view and cuts off portions of the videoboard.
Concourse entry tunnels are located just above row 1, so not only do the lower numbered rows keep you clear of the overhang issue, but they will also keep you closer to the restrooms and concessions.
Mezzanine Behind the Net (Hockey) Seating
Sitting behind the nets on the Mezzanine Level is an excellent choice for fans who want a comfortable spot to watch a hockey game at Little Caesars Arena.
The viewing height is ideal for clear sight lines to the ice, and you will rarely need to turn your head at any point between puck drop and the final horn. Most sections have just 5 numbered rows of seating in each, making it a breeze to move between the concourse and your seats.
The only spots where you can find a longer walk here is in Mezzanine section 1 or 4, which adds 5 lettered rows of seating closer to the ice for an impressive and unique viewing position. These seats are great for visiting team fans as it gets you closer to the net where the visitors attack twice. Conversely, home team fans will want to be at the south end of the arena (Mezzanine sections 18-21) for a closer position to the net where the Wings attack twice.
Most of the Mezzanine sections behind the nets offer a unique Drink Rail ticket option at the top of the section. Fans should be aware however that views from the rail position will be limited.
Mezzanine Corner (Hockey) Seating
Corner seating on the Mezzanine Level will offer fans excellent viewing height at a more affordable ticket price than the premium Mezzanine options closer to center ice.
At the south end of the arena, Mezzanine sections 15-17 and 22-24 will keep Wings fans closer to net where the home team attacks twice, and sit just above a ring of private seats just below.
On the north end, fans can get a bit closer to the action if sitting in the lettered rows of Mezzanine sections 5 or 34 as these seats extend lower and sit beside the neighboring suites. Although closer to the net where the visitors shoot twice and further from the concourse tunnels, these lettered rows are an excellent option for watching a hockey game.
Most corner sections on the Mezzanine are very small, providing a more comfortable atmosphere for watching hockey in Detroit. Just be careful when considering Drink Rail tickets in the Mezzanine Corner, as the views will be limited.
Mezzanine Sideline (Hockey) Seating
Similar to the seats near mid ice on the lower tier, most of the Mezzanine Level Side sections combine prime viewing angles with upscale amenities to create a fantastic experience at a Red Wings hockey game.
Almost all ticket holders here will have access to an upscale club lounge area for NHL games, other than those sitting in Mezzanine sections 8, 14, 25, and 31. The lounge offers a unique atmosphere for socializing and also gives you a private bar to share with your fellow Sideline Club ticket holders.
Aside from the perks found in most of the seats here, the viewing angles and seating height are ideal for being able to follow all the action on the ice without obstruction. These sections are also very small with no more than 5 rows of seating in each (with some also having a bar rail at the top), allowing for the easiest trips between the seats and the concourse.
Should you be considering Drink Rail tickets on the Mezzanine, it is important to note that the views of the ice from the standing rail position will be limited.
