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.

Floor seats - like those in Floor E - are among the most sought-after tickets

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 107, Section 108 and Section 116. 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.

Section 101 offers a comfortable head-on view for end-stage shows

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 106 and 118 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 315 and 325.

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.

    Venue & Seating Questions

    • Where is section MS11 at Madison Square Garden?

      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.

      Madison Level Suite 11 is located near the center of the arena on the south side
    • 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

    • Where is the Lexus Level and Marriott Bonvoy Suite?

      The Lexus Level is between the 100 and 200 levels at Madison Square Garden. The Marriott Bonvoy Suite is suite LSL 26.

    • 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.

    • Does Madison Square Garden have coat checks?

      Hello, and thank you for your question. Unfortunately Madison Square Garden does not provide any coat check services to any of their events.

    • Does the stage rotate for Billy Joel Concert?

      Hello, and thank you for your question. The stage does not rotate for Billy Joel's concert at Madison Square Garden. If you sit behind the stage at his concert you would still be able to see him playing his piano pretty clearly.

    • 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.

    • Which seats at Madison Square Garden have a personal TV?

      Row 1 in each 200 level section at Madison Square Garden has a television monitor on the ground at your feet.

      Section 224, which does not have a Row 1, and Section 223, which is wheelchair accessible, do not have television monitors.

      Row 1 in the 200 level at MSG has HDTV monitors (adapted from
    • How many rows in each section at Madison Square Garden?
      Each section has a varying amount of rows and seats. Find a section to see row and/or seat numbers.
    • Is seat number 1 on the left or right side of sections?
      As you look towards the court from your seats, lower number seats are on your right.
