If you’ve never been to the Radio City Music Hall, you’re in for a treat. I’ve been to hundreds of venues, and the décor, sound and seating chart (i.e. configuration) for Radio City is top notch.
There are three seating charts: 1.) A standard Radio City Music Hall Seating Chart 2.) A detailed seating chart of Radio City including row & seat numbers 3.) Radio City Christmas Spectacular Interactive Seating Chart
All of the Orchestra sections are great; my only warning is that if you are looking at seats in the 100s or 700s (the most left & right sections) make sure your seats are closer to the inside aisle. In addition, row N-Z (in section 400 of the orchestra) are obstructed by the soundboard.
All of the mezzanine sections overhang the orchestra at row K. However, there is a difference between sitting in the 1st mezz to the 3rd mezzanine section, but most likely your budget will dictate where you’ll sit. With that said I would avoid the 100s & 700s sections; I would personally choose to sit in the 300s of the 2nd mezzanine vs the 100s of the 1st mezzanine.
Lastly, with the exception of a few obstructed seats, including the center section (400) of the 2nd mezzanine, I believe every seat in Radio City is a good one.
The Best Seats:
The best seats depends on which event you are going to see. If you are going to see the Christmas Spectacular (or a similar show), you don’t want the first 13 rows (AA-LL), instead row MM to ZZ would be better (allowing you to see the entire stage without that 1st row in the movie theater feeling). The center sections of the 1st mezzanine also provide a spectacular view.
For radio city music hall concerts I personally prefer to get as close as possible, however if you’re a sound junkie you may want seats close to, but in front of the soundboard. The detailed seating chart of Radio City Music Hall (below) should help you further determine where you would like to sit. Do note that some concerts at Radio City have a pit section (rows AAA to CCC), while some don’t. TicketMaster will frequently show the seating chart without the Pit Section, even though those tickets are available. So if you are looking for the best seats you’ll likely want Pit Seats.
Note: For the Radio City Christmas Spectacular the sound board is not in the orchestra section. Instead for the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular the sound board is in the 2nd mezzanine (rows A & B).
