I've been to many concerts here at Rod Laver, it's a great, broad venue and have amazing sound. Have sat/stood in several spots and in my opinion the best place to be is on the floor. It's where I've been able to see the most.

You can get on to the Rod Laver Arena website, which will give you the option to put in your dates, and then chose what type of tour you wish to do, and gives the prices also. I hope that this helps :)
