Staples Center

"Side views and railing distractions"

Seat Review From Section 333, Row 6, Seat 2
Sep 2014


My seat was right in line with the front portion of the stage, leaving me with a side angle view of the performance just below. I was definitely close to the action for being on the 300 level, but unfortunately I couldn't really see any of the artists head on which was a bit of a disappointment.
The hand railings and safety glass don't significantly obstruct the view, but are incredibly annoying to have right in the line of sight. Next time I would opt for seats further down the row (higher numbered seats) to help provide a better viewing angle to the stage and avoid the large hand railings from creating a distraction.

    Looking far down at the side of the stage

    Sep 2014

    Section 333, Row 15, Seat 22

    From this high up I was left looking down right at the side of the stage. My seat was in the last row and just barely in front of the stage, which left me with little to no view of the faces of the band members. But for an upper level seat, I did feel decently close to the action in spite of the side view. Just wish I had been one or two seats over in Seats 23 or 24 as these seats were empty just in front, and could get up and walk down the aisle to the concourse without asking anyone else to move. Its a decent cheap option if you want to feel close to the band, but you should look elsewhere if you want a traditional perspective with a decent view of the front of the stage.

    • "Decent view but difficult access"

      (Section 318) - -

      This is a huge section with 33 seats in the row, and unfortunately I was in seat 16 leaving me right in the middle of this monster. I would definitely opt for seats closer to aisle next time, where Seat 1 is on the right aisle, and Seat 33 is on the closer aisle to the stage at the left side of the...

    • "Entire view was obscured and was not told at time of purchase"

      (Section 319) - -

      My two friends and I had absolutely no view. My friend complained and said the screens which were blocking our view to the stage and were sideways were “not supposed to be there”. We basically saw nothing. Only listened. I was extremely disappointed.

    • "Decent view from Section 301!"

      (Section 301) - -

      We’ve never been inside Staples Center and was worried these would be terrible seats. We saw the Bruno Mars concert on 10/27/2018. The seats were decent for the price. You can see the performers on the stage and the large projector screens helped but you lose the sight lines of the left back half ...
