Best Seats For a Concert at Paycom Center
The most common seating layout at Paycom Center for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 109, Section 110 and Section 111. 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 106, Section 107 and Section 114. 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 109, Section 110, Section 111 and Section 112. 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 104 and 117 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 310 and 322.
For a traditional end stage configuration, seats in Sections 106 and 115 offer some of the safest and best options in the permanent seating bowl as you will stay close to the action with good elevation above floor level, and unlike closer neighbors, you won't have to worry as much as a potential side angle view.
However if you can find tickets in section 107 seats 1-6, or section 114 seats 13-18, you can get even closer and still typically have a good angle to the center of the performance. Sitting in seats 7 and higher of section 107 or in seats 1-12 of section 114 potentially put you at risk of side stage view during a traditional end stage performance.
Sections 105-106 and 115-116 will have you closest to the middle of Paycom Center, making for the very best seats during a show which features a stage in the center of the floor.
Seats in sections 104 and 107 keep you closer than other lower level options in the corners and one the end, however you will be left with a big head turn to see a traditional end stage when sitting as the seats face straight ahead.
Lower Level Baseline (Basketball) Seating
You can get very close to the court in some areas of the lower level sections behind the baskets, however these baseline sections are also home to some of the more difficult views for a basketball game at Paycom Center.
To avoid sitting directly behind the basket where the views are most limited by the basket support structure, opt for the lower numbered seats in Sections 110 and 120 or the higher numbered seats in Sections 101 and 111 (these will be closer to the corners where the viewing angles are less obstructed).
Sections here are the largest of any at Paycom Center with up to 33 rows of seating, and with entry tunnels are located at the very top it leaves the longest walks to and from the seats for fans closest to the court. Double lettered rows are closer to the action, but will also have less elevation between rows, making it more difficult to see over taller fans in the row just in front.
If you prefer a clearer view and easy access to and from the seats, opt for the single lettered rows which keep you closer to the entry tunnel and provide good seating elevation over the seats in front.
Lower Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
Some of the best values on the lower level are found in the corner sections as you will have less obstruction from the basket compared to seats along the baseline, and cheaper ticket prices compared to the center court options.
Thunder fans will have some exciting options in Sections 118 and 119, where the double lettered rows (closer to the court) keep you near the tunnel where the team enters and exits the court. The lowest rows of Sections 112 and 119 are the best places to stay close to the court, with seats at the very front (Row AA) having the feeling of a courtside ticket.
Fans sitting in the back rows (single letters) will be further from the court, but will have the benefit of a well elevated seating height for seeing the court and the closest access to the concourse (tunnels located above the last rows).
Lower Level Sideline (Basketball) Seating
Consistently among the most expensive options for basketball games at Paycom Center, the views from the Lower Level Sideline section can be difficult to beat especially in the seats closest to center court in Sections 105-106 and 115-116.
Each section begins with the ultra premium Courtside Club seats at the very front (found in the rows labeled FL1, FL2, FL3, and FL4). Fans there are treated to a one of kind of experience in the Courtside areas, with premium amenities and unforgettably close views. You can even sit beside the Thunder team bench in Rows FL1-FL2 of Section 116, or beside the visiting team bench in Rows FL1-FL2 of Section 115.
Behind the Courtside seats, the sections continue with up to 20 lettered rows of seating, and entry tunnels located above the last row. If you are priced out from getting a seat in the low rows close to the team benches, we recommend searching for tickets in the last few rows of Sections 105-106 where you'll be close to the entry tunnel, have an excellent seating height, and head-on views of the teams on their benches.
