Just months after the release of its chart-topping debut album and second opening stint for One Direction, 5 Seconds of Summer will be returning to U.S. fans for just a few fall 2014 tour dates, and Phoenix is one of the few lucky cities set to host the Australian quartet in November. The band will come to the Ak-Chin Pavilion on Nov. 13, several months ahead of the group's huge summer 2015 headlining tour, so Phoenix-area fans of the group will want to take advantage of the chance to see 5 Seconds of Summer live before the rest of the country. Prepare to hear songs like "She Looks So Perfect" and "Amnesia" in person when you attend this highly anticipated Thursday night performance.
Ak-Chin Pavilion Seating Information
The first area of seating in this open-air amphitheater is the Pit, which features several rows of reserved seating in Section 100 right in front of the stage where the 5 Seconds of Summer Phoenix concert will take place. Slightly farther back is the Lower Level, whose Sections 101-105 stretch across the width of the venue. Moving back, the Middle (Sections 201-205) and Upper (Sections 301-305) Levels also include five sections. Additionally, in between the Lower and Middle Levels, there are a number of private boxes that usually include special VIP amenities, sometimes including a private entrance, lounge access, or personalized in-seat wait service. All of the above levels feature reserved seating for the 5SOS concert, but if you would prefer general admission seating, you can elect to sit in the Lawn, which offers seating on a first-come, first-served basis at the rear of the arena.
