Marcus Amphitheater Seating Information
As Marcus Amphitheater hosts a variety of artists throughout the year, the seating options may vary from performance to performance. Typically, there are five sections: a general admission or reserved pit, front reserved, rear reserved, bleachers, and a general admission lawn. Double check the seating chart for Dave Matthews Band, as it will be unique depending on the performer's preferences. The pit section may be general admission, in which case it is standing room only. If listed simply as "pit," the section likely offers reserved seating. The front and rear reserved sections are both situated under the Marcus Amphitheater roof and offer standard stadium seats. The final two sections are uncovered, but bleacher seats include reserved seating locations, whereas the lawn seats are always general admission.
