British music icon Elton John will light up San Jose, Calif., on Oct. 2 when he brings his 2014 tour to the SAP Center. During this Thursday night concert, sing along to your favorite songs, like "Tiny Dancer," "Bennie and the Jets," and "Your Song," as this legendary performer showcases his talents on the piano. In addition to playing the best songs from his early career, John will likely treat attendees to tunes from his most recent album, 2013's "The Diving Board," which included the single "Can't Stay Alone Tonight."
SAP Center Seating Information
The stage for the Elton John San Jose concert will be positioned on the far end of the arena. The arena has two main levels in the tiered seating bowl. Farthest from the stage is the Upper Level, whose Sections 201-228 circle the arena floor. There is also a Club Level slightly lower in the arena that features Sections 101-128. Be aware that a few of the sections will be behind or to the side of the stage, so you may not have a full view of Elton John's performance if you sit in certain areas. If you want to sit on the same level as the stage, choose seats in Sections 1-3 of the Floor Level.
