Best Seats For a Concert at Rose Bowl Stadium

The most common seating layout at Rose Bowl Stadium for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 1, Section 2 and Section 21. For many concerts there are also slight variations to the layout, which may include General Admission seats, fan pits and B-stages.

Field seats - like those in Field B6 - are among the most sought-after tickets

On the Field: Sections Field A1, Field A2, Field A3 and Field A4 are Field Seats, which offer some of the closest views of the performers. For many concerts, field sections are added or removed. These performer-specific adjustments may alter the field layout and the views from each field 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 4, Section 5 and Section 18. The view is not head-on like on the field, but many of the seats are closer to the stage, provide better elevation and are actual stadium seats.

Section 13 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 10, Section 11, Section 12 and Section 13 provide the most comfortable looks of the performance.

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 1, Section 2, Section 21 and Section 22. 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 field seats only in the first few rows: The most common complaint amongst field 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 E Level Suites Center and E Level Suites North 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 .
