SAP Center Seating for Concerts

Recommended Seats For End-Stage Setups

Floor seats, like those in Floor 3 are among the most sought-after tickets

On the Floor: Sections FL1, FL2 and FL3 are a part of Floor Seating, 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 101 , 102 , 114 and 115 . 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 107 , 109 , 207 and 208 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 Tickets

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 114 and 102 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 227 and 217.

Seating Tips & Advice

  • "Wasted of $900" - Try wasting $900 on four Eagles tix. I have been to 6-7 Eagles concerts, and first bad one. Band some what flat, and the venue was the worst. The promoters has Nazi police making everyone in the front 25 rows sit down most of the time, and if you took a picture, they threatened to turn you in to the San Jose police department. One block head security guard tried to throw a lady in front of us out of the concert for texting. Eagles get an B-, HP Pavilion gets A-, concert promoters and security gets a straight F.
