The Best Seats in the House: Entertainment Venues in Shreveport-Bossier City
With 16 luxury box seats available for lease on a yearly basis, you better believe you’ll have the perfect view of Salt-N-Pepa, Vanilla Ice and Coolio at the end of the month (Sept. 30).
Shreveport Municipal Auditorium
Built in 1928, the Municipal has been a hot venue for many well-known artists from Elvis Presley to Jack White. Whether you’re on the floor, in the orchestra (mid-level) or in the balcony, the view doesn’t change much. From our perspective, there’s not a bad seat in the house. The beauty of the venue is that the slope of the seats in the balcony is steeper than any other auditorium so you can see over the heads of the people in front of you easily.
The Strand Theatre
When you find yourself taking in the beauty that is The Strand Theatre, try to get yourself to the Orchestra Center, Rows E-G. If you’re tall, and in need of a little more legroom, go for Orchestra Left or Right, Row M. Prefer a balcony view? Your choice would be anywhere in the Loge. In all honesty, though, because The Strand is such a small, intimate venue, you won’t find a bad seat in the house unless you’re sitting behind Shaquille O’Neal.
If you plan on getting in on the action at Independence Stadium, you’ll want to find yourself in one of three places: the sideline bench seats, the end zone seats or better yet, the new chair-back seats which are soon going to be available to annual ticketholders as well as sponsors. Suites also are always a good idea.
