Premium Seating Side at Staples Center Concerts


Sitting Here for a Concert

While Premier sections at the Staples Center are best-known for upscale amenities and comfortable seating, they also offer some fantastic sitelines for an end-stage concert. While the seats don\'t have the wow-factor of being right up against the stage, their elevated location often leads to a more comfortable experience.

When looking at tickets in these sections, we highly recommend the first row if available. There is a half-wall in front of row 1 that separates these seats from the walkway below, but it does not disrupt your view. Instead, you\'ll have zero concern about seeing over fans in front of you. You can decide to watch the show from the comfort of your seat, or stand and enjoy the extra legroom of the first row.

As with the lower level, some of the best bargains are found in the side sections closest to the stage (PR3 and PR16). The stage is generally pushed back far enough where these seats provide a decent view to most parts of the stage. But we recommend checking the seller notes for any mention of a side/limited view. If these notes are present, it doesn\'t necessarily mean that your view will be entirely obstructed, but you should temper expectations for these seats.   -

      (Section 5) - -

      Outstanding seats for a concert. Not as expensive as the closer side seats, but you get a fantastic view. The Row 1 seats in the Premier are crazy good. The legroom is awesome. There's a ledge in front of you that you can put stuff on, and you're at a great elevation to see everything - without worr...
