Other concert-goers have chimed in with their experiences, highlighting seats with poor views. For example, Cat 5, Section 101, and Cat 4, Section 214, Row C were mentioned as having limited visibility. Despite being close to the stage, the middle screen in Section 214, Row C was reportedly not easily visible.
Now that we've covered the seats to avoid, let's move on to the seats worth considering:
For those on a budget, Cat 6, Section 313 offers a panoramic view of the entire stadium, allowing you to capture memorable videos on your phone.
Additionally, Cat 5, Section 103 provides a direct and clear view of the stage and screens at a reasonable price. Cat 7, Section 203, and Cat 6, Section 313 are also recommended options.
Even if you find yourself sitting far from the stage, the screens will ensure you don't miss out on seeing your favourite artist perform. Cat 3 seats also offer a worthwhile view.
Now that you have a better understanding of which seats to avoid and which ones to aim for, it's time to gear up for the ticket sale tomorrow starting at 10 AM.
