With a range of past performers including Rush, Elton John, and Bruce Springsteen, fans in attendance for FirstOntario Centre concerts have seen a fair share of superstar musicians pass through the doors. Be on hand to watch R5 join the illustrious list of live acts during the concert on April 7. Boasting nearly 19,000 seats, a variety of seating options, and accessible amenities, this versatile arena remains one of the most accommodating live concert venues in Ontario.
FirstOntario Centre Seating Information
The FirstOntario Centre stage will be set up on the arena floor. Most performers will have slightly unique stage configurations that will affect the arrangement of floor seating, so be sure to double check with the seating chart on this page for specifics on the layout for R5. Reserved floor seating is typically arranged by section, but there may also be a general admission pit area that lies closest to the stage. The floor level is followed by the lower level (Sections 101-128) and the upper level (201-236). These two levels offer stadium-style seating. Please note that some of the sections may offer a limited view of the stage. If any listings do have a side or obstructed view, the details will be listed in the "Notes" section.
On occasion, an entire level (i.e. floor, lower, or upper level) may be general admission. In these instances, the seating is first-come, first-served for the whole level.
FirstOntario Centre General Information
On occasion, children under two years are admitted free, but this policy may change depending on the performer. FirstOntario Centre never allows professional cameras, recording devices, or backpacks inside the venue. Some performers may permit the use of non-professional cameras without flash.
FirstOntario Centre Parking Information
Parking is available near the venue in an underground structure at Jackson Square and within the lot across from the box office. Parking fees may vary by event.
FirstOntario Centre Gate Times
