Staples Center

"Not for those afraid of heights!"

Seat Review From Section 304, Row 12, Seat 3
Aug 2014


The 300 sections are incredibly steep. When you look towards the floor, it looks like you're looking straight down. This is most apparent in the higher rows.

Unless you're looking for the cheapest way to get into the arena for a show, I would stay away from seats this high. The stairs are difficult to navigate, there is no legroom and the stage is really, really far away.

    Section 304, Row 15, Seat 9

    From what I could see from looking around the Staples Center, these are some of the highest and furthest seats available for a traditional end stage concert. And while by comparison they are further than almost any other option, it doesn't feel terribly distant when you're dialed into the stage. You can see the front of the stage decently, but as the seats face straight ahead across the floor, I was looking to the right most of the time to watch everything. It is incredibly dark back here before the lights go down for the performance, but its not a huge issue as all the lights go off once the show begins and the stage lighting illuminates almost all areas of the arena. Seats were padded and comfy, and even had a cupholder for my beverage. But next time I think I'll find seats closer to the stage.

    • "Good angle to the stage on the upper level"

      (Section 306) - -

      Section 306 is in a corner on the upper seating tier, and has very good views to the center of the stage. The seats angle nicely toward the middle of the floor which allow you to sit back and enjoy the performance without having to move your head around very much. In Row 6 I was far enough up from...

    • "Good center stage views from the upper level"

      (Section 314) - -

      I wasn't sure what to expect out of a corner section on the upper level, but these seats were great for providing a clear view to the center of the stage. I was positioned perfectly to be able to see all the action, and wasn't left looking all the way to the left or right the entire time. I could ...

    • "Farthest seat in the stadium?"

      (Section 306) - -

      This was the last row in the farthest corner section at the back of the Staples Center.I'm not sure that you can get much farther away. The double-digit rows in the 300 level are really high up there, so be warned. Sound quality isn't too bad. It's actually pretty loud. Can't see much detail and...
