With a seating capacity of more than 19,000 guests, the Scotiabank Saddledome is one of the premier venues in Alberta. Normally home to the Calgary Flames, this large arena also plays host to dozens of highly anticipated concert events throughout the year, including Arcade Fire on August 12.
Scotiabank Saddledome Seating Information
Typically, concerts at Scotiabank Saddledome will be configured with the stage on one end of the arena floor and seating available in any section with a frontal view of the stage. Occasionally, certain performances may offer obstructed, side-, or rear-view seating to admit more guests for a particular artist. If any seats have an obstructed view, this information will be listed on the inventory notes.
The typical concert setup features between three and four levels. Floor seating is located in one section on the main arena floor and is broken down by row. Next, the lower, (100), middle (200), and press levels feature riser-style arena seating. Occasionally, an artist may use a particular stage configuration that offers a pit area directly in front of the stage.
