Normally home to the sports teams at Fresno State, the Save Mart Center also moonlights as a concert venue for artists like Tim McGraw, who will be rocking the house on 5/8/14.
Save Mart Center Seating Information
Depending on the stage layout, the entire floor may be a general admission pit or it may consist of reserved seating. Generally, if it is reserved seating, the floor will be divided into Sections 1 and 2 at the front of the venue, followed by 3-5 in the middle, and 6-8 near the rear. However, in some cases, there will be a partial pit/general admission and some reserved seating as well, so be sure to check the seating chart for Tim McGraw that can be found on this page.
The next level of seating is the 100 level, which starts with Section 101 in the back left corner, and continues counter-clockwise around the venue to the adjoining Section 126. Note that Sections 112-120 may have obstructed views, which will be noted in the listings. Suites may also be available for purchase, with boxes numbered 1-40 around the entire building. Due to the stage location, Suites 18-29 may not be available for the show, or will have an obstructed view. The remaining seating starts with Section 201 in the back left corner, and continues around the venue to Section 230. Like the previous sections, Sections 214-224 may have obstructed views.
