Best Seats For a Concert at Madison Square Garden
The most common seating layout at Madison Square Garden for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 110, Section 111 and Section 112. 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 106, Section 107, Section 108 and Section 109. 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.
Head-on to the Stage: Seats directly across from the stage, like those in Section 1, Section 2, Section 3 and Section 101 provide the most comfortable looks of the performance. 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 110, Section 111, Section 112 and Section 113. 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 118 and 106 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 Sections 222 and 213.
Corner seating on the 100 level of MSG for is an inexpensive way to be on the lower level for a concert. For a traditional end stage layout, these seats aren't as close to the stage as side seating and don't enjoy the same head-on view that end seating offers.
Something to consider when purchasing corner seats is that they're meant for basketball and hockey, so they're angled towards the center of the floor and not a stage. Sections 104 and 120 have a more comfortable angle than 105 and 119.
100 Level Side (Concert) Seating
For fans who can't/don't want to sit in the first 15 rows of the floor, sections 108 and 116 are the next best thing for a traditional end stage performance. Unlike being on the floor, these seats are permanent and elevated, meaning more comfortable seating and less standing all while remaining very close to the stage.
To get even closer during an end stage show, choose seats on the right aisle (seat 13 in row 1) of section 115 or on the left aisle (seat 1) in section 109. Being on the opposite aisles of these sections will still have you close to the action, but you will be left with a difficult side angle view of the performance.
Sections 107 and 117 are also good options for an end stage performance, but are best if the show features a main stage right in the middle of the floor.
100 Level Side sections typically have 22 numbered rows of seating in each, with concourse entry tunnels located near the back of the section, just above row 17. For a convenient option which doesn't require a ton of walking up and down the aisles, opt for seats in rows 13-17.
Lower Level End (Concert) Seating
End seating on the lower level is split up into sections 1-3 and sections 101-103. Sections 1-3 have 19-20 rows of seating per section, while Sections 101-103 have 20 rows each, with the first row being row 6.
The main difference between sections 1-3 and 101-103 is the elevation of 101-103. Sections 1-3 are similar to floor seats in that they do not rise up very much as you go farther back. This causes trouble for many shorter fans who have difficulty seeing over taller individuals.
Either way, all end seats are head-on to the stage so you won't have to turn your body to get a great view. If you don't mind being relatively far back from the stage, these seats are one of the most comfortable ways to watch a concert at Madison Square Garden.
100 Level Baseline (Basketball) Seating
Despite having a view behind the basket, these seats have more height to them than the Floor seats. This makes it easier to see over the people in front of you and gives you a better view of the entire court. Each section has 15 rows of seating labeled 6-20, with the entrance to the concourse located at the top of each section.
100 Level Center (Basketball) Seating
These seats offer some of the best views of the court for a Knicks game. The height of the seats is better for seeing the whole court than the single-digit sections directly in front and the price tag is much, much less.
Section 108 is behind the Knicks bench and is a great option for New York supporters, while visiting fans will prefer Section 106 behind the visitor's bench. Row 1 is at the front of Sections 106-108, but seating looks a little different on the opposite side of the court with the Event Level Suites occupying the front portion (Sections 116-118 don't begin until Row 6).
100 Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
Fans sitting in the corner sections will find better views and angles to the court in higher rows. Each section has 23 or fewer rows, so targeting rows 15 and higher will give you a quality view of the court and will have you closer to the concourse tunnel.
Floor Baseline (Basketball) Seating
Baseline seats on the Floor at Madison Square Garden are among the more over-rated seats at Madison Square Garden for a Knicks Game.
The view of the court is very poor for lower level seats because the basket obstructs many of the views. An even bigger issue is the lack of height in rows 10 and above. This makes the other side of the court seem very far away and it makes seeing over other fans very difficult for shorter individuals. Choosing a comparably-priced seat in a 100-level location is often the better decision.
100 Level Center (Hockey) Seating
Sections 106-108 and 116-118 make up center seating on the 100 level at MSG.
To sit in the first row behind the Rangers bench, choose seats in Row 1 of Section 106 or 107 (107 is behind both player benches). The Event Level Suites are located in front of Sections 116-118, so there are about ten rows of seating in between these sections and the penalty boxes.
100 Level Corners (Hockey) Seating
These sections do not come down all the way to the ice because Rinkside seating occupies the first row, but they still provide a very good view of the ice -- especially the puck battles deep in the corner.
All corner sections will have to deal with the glass partitions distracting part of your view. Rows 8 and below will be looking through the glass the entire time, while rows 9-15 will be most distracted by looking over and through the glass depending on where the puck is. The Rangers shoot twice towards Section 109, 110 and 114-115.
100 Level Goal (Hockey) Seating
Each 100 level end section contains 15 rows of seating with Row 6 being first and Row 20 being last. Sections 111-113 are very popular among Rangers fans because they are behind the net where the Rangers attack in the first and third periods.
Generally speaking, you will be looking through the glass to see the action inside the nearest blue line and above the glass to see the rest of the ice. Unlike most seating on the lower level, these are not club seats, which makes them the cheapest option for Rangers tickets on the lower level. Some fans will complain that the other end of the ice is too far away, while others will celebrate being the first to know when a goal is scored on their end of the ice.

Seating Tips & Advice
"The West Balcony is one of my preferred seating locations" - The West Balcony is way up high at the suite level, with 3 rows of seats and a row of bar stools. I love the bar stools and aim for these seats now when I go see my Rangers. The view is awesome, the concessions are a few steps away, and there is a good vibe. The only downside is that there aren't restrooms up there.
Section MS11 is also known as Madison Level Suite 11, which is located near the center of MSG on the south side (just above Section 116 and below Section 223). For basketball and hockey games, this Suite is located opposite the team benches, allowing for head on views of the players and coaches on the sidelines.

Is Section GA4 row 6 seat 17 good seats at Madison Square Garden?
General Admission seats for New York Liberty games are located behind the basket in Sections 101-103. While behind the basket views aren't ideal, you are at a good height to see the entire court.
Because the seats are general admission, you will have an opportunity to move around and find a seat that works for you. We recommend corner Section 101 which will be less obstructed by the basket and will have a good view of the player benches.
General Admission seating for the Liberty is behind the basket in sections 101-103
Is the 200 level obstructed by the overhang at Madison Square Garden?
The impact of the overhang will depend whether you are sitting at the ends of Madison Square Garden, or along the sides of the arena.
At the ends of the Garden (sections 216-220, 201-207), there is no view obstruction in the 200 level created by overhanging structures. And as the 200 level seats are closer and lower to the floor than the 300 and 400 level end sections, the better option is to stay on the 200 level level.
But in the corners and along the sides of the 200 level at Madison Square Garden (sections 208-214, 221-227), the overhanging Chase Bridge seats will begin to narrow sight lines and block views of the Garden scoreboard starting at Row 15. The Chase Bridge seats make up the 300 level sections along the sides (310-316, 324-328) and while they are higher up from the floor level, these seats actually sit closer to the center of the arena with clear views to the action below. If you do not mind the additional height, these seats will provide better overall views than the 200 level side sections in rows 15 and higher.
When going to a Knicks game, what sections give you Delta Sky Club access when you purchase tickets?
The Delta Sky Club will be accessible for all fans with tickets in Sections 4 through 6 and 10 through 12 (which are known as the Delta Sky 360 Club seats). Another area where fans will have access to the Delta Sky Club is found in the first two rows (Row AA and Row A) of Baseline Club sections 1 through 3, and 7 through 9.
