    so...I am a big fan of PINK and she is coming to the ACC in March. I look at the ACC layout and I have no visual idea of what would be a decent seat. I’m hoping that some of you here can give me some advice on good,better,best seat tickets.

    Where is a good view? Should I get floor seats? I have no idea at all.

    And, yes, my last stadium concert was David Bowie at the Montreal forum. And I have to correct myself, it was in 1976. I guess I don’t get out much......

    At Ye Olde Coliseum in Edmonton, I would try to get tickets on the floor, middle, a few rows in front of the mixing desk. Should be the best sound but your view may be compromised by a large person in front of you.

    depends if you want to be centre, or are ok with sections to the sides with very good seats.
    I assume it is stage to the one end correct? If so I personally prefer the sides. For Bruno Mars I was in section 109 about 8 rows up seats 9-10 and as far left in that section as possible. On that end #1 would be the farthest over you can get. Or you could pick the mirror seats on the opposite side, but the seat numbers ascend the reverse as well so seat #24 would be closer to the stage if 24 was the last seat in that section.
    For Hall and Oates/Tears for Fears we sat floors 20 rows back just slightly left of centre and was pretty good as well but if they stand, you stand, but floors are flat, not stadium seating like the side sections.

    I agree with emidyl.... sections 109 or 118 I'd try for.

    I'm not a fan of floor seats unless no further than only a handfull of rows back. I like to be on the sides and enough rows up to be somewhat level with the stage.

    yep around rows 8-11 will get you approx level with stage but of course dependent from act to act. Ours turned out to be pretty level at Mars concert. I had also sat in similar location for Muse a couple years back. My fav by far but yes like maggot12 unless you can get within first 6 rows, floors kinda suck for me

    Also, you can google the section and sometimes row and seat and maybe find a pic from there. There are thousands of pics online of ACC seating to give you an idea of where you may want to be.

    Section 109.. this is a good location, but a few rows down would be better.

    If the sound is ok on the side, I always liked being up high with some binoc's.
