    Terrible!! Beware.

    Concert Review
    Section 16, Row Y, Seats 5-10

    Row Y is the top row on the lower arena seats. You are up under the overhang from the upper level - this prevents any vision of the big screens, distorts the acoustics and becomes very hot. We paid the same high price for lower level seats. So disappointed - 6 tickets!!!

    • Courtside


      Courtside seats at Rupp Arena are widely considered the best tickets for a Kentucky basketball game. These seats are within five rows of the court and are sometimes known as Floor Seats. Courtside Rows There are two types of Courtside seats for Kentucky basketball. True Courtside seats are located directly on the floor. Fans will be seated on a folding chair just mere feet from the action. These rows are labeled FL, AAA or BBB. Behind true Courtside seats are stadium seating rows labeled AA-DD. While these seats aren't directly on the floor, they are extra-padded chairback seats with excellent sitelines. 

    • Lower Level


      Lower Level sections are Rupp Arena are labeled with a two-digit number (e.g.: 12). Rows in these sections are lettered. Double and triple-letter rows are closer to the floor, while Row Y is at the back of most sections. Best Lower Level Seats for Kentucky Basketball  Sit as close to center court as possible - in any row - for the best experience at a Kentucky game. If you sit in one of the front rows in one of these side sections you'll have extra-comfortable Courtside seats. And if you're in a higher row, you'll have a more comfortable view of the court. We're not a big fan of end sections because the basket disrupts your view. And we think corner sections are too far removed from the court. Best Lower Level Seats for a Concert  For most concerts, the best seats on the Lower Level will be in sections 13 and 32. When the stage is setup on the West end of the arena, these are the closest side sections with a clear view of the stage. Lower Level sections are the primary alternative to guests who don't like sitting in Floor Seats. The rise of these sections makes it easier to see over other guests and most seats come with better access to amenities.
