Baltimore Arena Seating Information
The seating layout at Baltimore Arena varies depending on the event, but usually the stage will be located at one end of the venue with reserved seating throughout the floor. When there is reserved seating, the option closest to the stage will be Sections 1-3 at the front, followed by 4 and 6 near the rear of the floor. In some cases, there may be a general admission pit near the stage, or it might take up the entire floor. The next level of seating is the 100-level, which starts with Section 101 on the left side of the stage, and continues in odd intervals to Section 115 near the rear. The right side of the stage has the same concept, starting with Section 102 near the front to Section 116 at the back in even intervals. The same holds true for the remaining levels, with Sections 201 and 301 on the left side of the stage, which continue in odd intervals to Sections 229 and 329 in the middle. The right side of the stage runs in even intervals from Section 202-228 and just behind that is Section 302-328.
