The most common seating layout at Oakland Arena for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 117, Section 118 and Section 119. 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 Riser 1, Riser 2, Riser 13 and Riser 14. 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 Riser 7, Riser 8, Section 106 and Section 107 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 117, Section 118, Section 119 and Section 120. 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 102 and 113 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 218 and 231.
Where is wheelchair seating on the 200 level at Oracle Arena?
Wheelchair tickets at Warriors games are assigned to specific sections and have the row listed as "DS". On the lower level, these seats are often found in the last row of their respective section.
On the 200 level, these seats do not have their own row. Instead, they are adjacent to the first four rows of regular seating in their respective section. For example, the DS row in section 202 provides a nearly identical view as row 1 in section 202.
