Where to Sit in the Bridgestone Arena

Finding the best seats in the Bridgestone Arena comes down to a few things. We will go over some of the better places to sit inside. We’ll go over two of the major events that come through. First, we will talk about where to sit for a Nashville Predators game and then we’ll discuss where to sit for a concert.

In the past, we’ve seen some big events come through including the Jonas Brothers, John Mayer, Phish, Drake, and Luke Bryan to name a few.

To kick things off we’ll talk about the Nashville Predators. The arena is home to dozens of games and playoff games each year. In fact, the stadium was built for this reason. Nashville has a booming entertainment community, but this arena is the biggest in the area besides the Tennessee Titans Nissan Stadium.

Similar to other NHL venues, the arena has a consistent layout, though the names of sections, suites, and club seats may change due to sponsorship deals. Here are the key areas:

100 Level – With a relatively easy numbering system, the 100 level consists of sections 101-120. Getting seats in the first 15 rows at a hockey game is always a treat. If you want to be behind the Predators bench look for section 116. These tickets are more expensive than similar seats on the other side of the arena. If you are a fan of the opposing team look at section 115.

Shooting Twice – For action near the opponent’s goal during two of the three periods, target sections 107-114.

Penalty Box – This could be a fun area to sit at times. Look for seats in sections 105-106 to get close to the player’s sitting for a penalty.

Bench Seats – No, not on the team bench, but it feels like you are right there. These could be the best seats in the building. These are truly hard tickets to get as there are only 4 seats.

Club Level – Just like the 100 level, the club level consists of sections 201 – 224, just above the lower lever. Each of these sections is considered club-level. You’ll have access to better bathrooms and concession stands. Try to get the first 5 rows if you can. Look for savings behind either net.

300 Level – Also known as the balcony level, this area is best avoided unless you’re part of a large group. If you must, aim for the first three rows. The fan zone offers some of the better seats in this level.

Suites – There are several different suite locations around the arena. If you can score tickets in the Lexus Lounge or the Bunker Suite, you are surely in for a good time. This is a great way to take in a game with all of the amenities you would expect.

Concert Seating in the Bridgestone Arena

As for a concert at Bridgestone Arena, things get a little different. Due to the floor setup and stage layout, you can expect a new seating chart. Let’s take a look at an upcoming concert by Olivia Rodrigo. Remember, you can use this as a guide for any concert hosted here.

GA Pit – The general admission area is great for fans who want to dance and sing all night. You will not be able to sit down and you’ll be pressed up against other fans for the whole show. If that suits you, then go for it. Remember, these are very expensive tickets compared to other areas.

Floor Seats – Just beyond the pit are the floor seats. There aren’t a ton of seats here as the pit and the stage will take up half the floor. Try to go a few rows back from the front to save. Watch and see if new tickets get added around a month outside the event.

Lower Level – The first 10 rows of sections 105, 106, 107, 114, 115, and 116 are a great way to take in a show. You could see overpriced tickets in the first 5 rows, so slowly work your way back to save and not give up much of a view.

Club Level – A comfortable way to watch a show with less of a crowd. The distance can be further so look in sections 223 and 224 for that center stage view and sound.

Balcony Level – These seats are way overpriced for this show. You definitely want to level down or get the first couple of rows if possible. You will have to make budget decisions at any concert you attend.

Arrival Expectations

When attending an event at a major venue like the Bridgestone Arena, you have to consider a few things. If you plan to bring a bag make sure it isn’t that big. Bags like a backpack will not be allowed in. You’ll most likely be in line a little longer so make sure you give yourself enough time.

Another thing to consider is parking. There are several parking garages around the arena. Some may be better than others. You have the Fifth and Broadway Garage, Parking at Bridgestone Arena, and the Pinnacle at Symphony Place Garage as the major parking locations. You can expect to pay around $20-$25 to park your car for a game. An oversold or highly anticipated event could see even higher pricing. Use a site like SpotHero to help you get your spot ahead of time. It could save you a lot of headaches leading up to the game or event.

Make Your Move this Weekend

There is a lot happening in the Nashville area each week. If you have an opportunity to check out a Predators game or concert you should make your move. Get your tickets from the listings above. You will be surprised by the availability. The key is finding the best seats in Bridgestone Arena. If you can do this and pay less, consider yourself lucky. Time your event and always look at several sections for better pricing. Good luck with your research and enjoy the event.
