"Looking far down at the side of the stage"

Seat Review From Section 333, Row 15, Seat 22
Sep 2014


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.

    Side views and railing distractions

    Sep 2014

    Section 333, Row 6, Seat 2

    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.

    • "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.

    • "Worst seat in the house?!"

      (Section 301) - -

      I thought I'd be getting a great spot on the aisle and in the lower rows of a 300 level section which wasn't all that far from the stage, but I quickly realized this could be one of the worst possible places to sit for a concert at Staples Center. A metal hand railing and glass safety partition cou...

    • "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...
