Seating at Spokane Arena is divided into a Lower and Upper Level with a ring of Suites in between.
Lower Level sections include 101-124. For end-stage concerts, sections 106 and 114 are the closest side sections to the stage. For basketball games, 104 and 116 are located at center court.
In the Upper Level, sections 205 and 215 have the closest direct views for concerts, while 204 and 216 are located at the center of the arena.
The entrance to each Lower Level section is located at the top row, while the Upper Level entrances are located near the third row (Row C).
Courtside sections are added for most basketball games, while Floor sections are added for concerts.
Handicap accessible seating is available at the top of sections 102, 108-109, 111-113, 119-121, and 123-124.
Best Seats For a Concert at Spokane Arena
The most common seating layout at Spokane Arena 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.
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 102, Section 103, Section 104 and Section 105. 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.
Head-on to the Stage: Seats directly across from the stage, like those in Floor 1, Floor 2, Floor 3 and Floor 4 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 102 and 118 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 Sections 206 and 214.
Upper level baseline sections will have some of the furthest views at Spokane Arena, and are located behind the east basket which will interfere with some sitelines.
Like other 200 level sections, 220-224 have 14 lettered rows of seating with Row A at the front and the entry tunnel located at Row C. Unfortunately, owing to their position behind the basket, these seats don't feel as close to the court as other 200 level sections. If ticket prices are comparable, first consider corner seating where you're much closer to the court.
Upper Level Corner (Basketball) Seating
Just beyond the baseline on the upper seating tier, upper level corner sections will have decent views in the sections nearest to the baskets. Sections in the upper level corner have 14 rows of seating with Row A in front, and the entry tunnel located at Row C.
Although you won't find a center-court view, the front rows in these sections are a great alternative to higher-priced tickets in the lower level. Rows A-F, in particular, are much closer to the court than one might expect.
Upper Level Sideline (Basketball) Seating
Upper Level Sideline sections offer the best seats in the 200 level due to their close proximity to mid-court. Sections in this location have between 13 to 14 rows in each, with Row A located at the front, and the entry tunnel located at Row C.
These upper level sections are separated from the 100 level by a small ring of suites. As such, the views from these sections are outstanding - similar to what you'd find in the club level in a large basketball arena. With ticket prices usually much lower than 100s sections, these seats typically offer outstanding value.
