Best Seats For a Concert at Spectrum Center

The most common seating layout at Spectrum Center for concerts is an end-stage setup with the stage located near sections Section 108, Section 109 and Section 110. For many concerts there are also slight variations to the layout, which may include General Admission seats, fan pits and B-stages.

Floor seats - like those in Floor 1 - are among the most sought-after tickets

On the Floor: Sections Floor 1, Floor 2, Floor 3 and Floor 4 are Floor Seats, which offer some of the closest views of the performers. For many concerts, floor sections are added or removed. These performer-specific adjustments may alter the floor layout and the views from each floor section.

To the Side of the Stage: For close views of the stage with a little bit of elevation, consider seats to the side of the stage in Section 106, Section 107 and Section 112. The view is not head-on like on the floor, but many of the seats are closer to the stage, provide better elevation and are actual stadium seats.

Section 101 offers a comfortable head-on view for end-stage shows

Head-on to the Stage: Seats directly across from the stage, like those in Section 101, Section 117, Section 201 and Section 202 provide the most comfortable looks of the performance.

Even upper level sections offer unobstructed sitelines. Just keep in mind that you won't be able to see as much detail from these seats as you would if you sat closer to the stage.

Consider the Following When Buying Concert Tickets

Seats behind the stage are occassionally sold: Unless your main objective is to just get in the building, you'll want to completely avoid anything behind the stage - like those in/near or above sections Section 108, Section 109, Section 110 and Section 111. It's unlikely the performer will turn around to salute you - and you're more likely to be completely blocked out from seeing the show.

If you're on the shorter side (or bringing kids), consider floor seats only in the first few rows: The most common complaint amongst floor ticketholders is that they can't see the stage because of taller people in front of them. As an alternative, consider side sections near the stage that will still have you close and high enough to see.

Lower level side sections are not created equal: While the side sections closest to the stage are top-notch, side sections farther from the stage may leave you with a cramp in your neck. Sections 104 and 115 are not well-angled towards the stage - leaving you to turn your head for an ideal view. Instead, consider head-on sections in the lower level or even close side seats in the upper level like 210 and 224.

    Venue & Seating Questions

    • Which side of the arena is the guest side at Time Warner Cable Arena?

      The Miami Heat visiting team bench will be directly behind section 106, which is on the same side of the arena as your section (209). From section 209, you will be closely aligned to the Heat bench as you are near mid court, and more towards the side where the Heat bench will be. If you think your son would rather be on the opposite side from the bench to be able to see the Heat players faces, you could consider some of the closer rows in section 225. However from section 209, you will certainly be in the closest 200 level section to the visiting team.

      Section 209 Seating Location Versus Visitor Bench at Time Warner Cable Arena
      Section 209 will be one of the closer upper level sections to the visiting team bench, but head on views of the players will be better on the opposite side of the arena
