    How is the legroom in the upper deck at Reliant and how does it compare to the legroom at Toyota center? I have bad knees and have a difficult time bending them fully. At Toyota Center, I can't sit at all on the upper ends (behind the baskets) and can barely handle the upper sides. I've only been to Reliant a few times and have always sat in the lower bowl. I want to buy tickets to go see Guns N Roses (don't judge), but I don't want to spend the money to sit in the lower bowl but am concerned about leg room in the upper deck.

    IMO, seats at Reliant have better space than at top at Toyota Center. I have season tickets in the "gridiron" section, at the top.

    Toyota centers upper deck is terrible for anyone over 6'1. NRG is much better.

    Its been a few years since I was on the upper level of reliant and I can't remember it being particularly bad. However, upper level at Toyota is distinctly terrible and I'm uncomfortable.

    Just put your legs on the shoulders of the person in front of you. Problem solved.

    F - - - Toyota Center! I tumbled over 2 or 3 rows in the upper level section at a concert many years ago. Granted, it was probably due to slamming tequila shots and pounding beers, regardless upper level seats at TC are steep with very little leg room. Oh well, at least I lived up to my Clutchfans user name. :cool:

    You'll be fine at NRG (formerly known as Reliant). I also have Texans' season tickets in the gridiron section and I'm not sitting on my nuts. You'll be fine.

    The upper seats at the Toyota center are perfect for anyone who likes to smell someones hair and/or look at bald spots.

    I always climb over the seats at Toyota because it's impossible to shimmy past people. I've been threatened by the ushers a handful of times that if I tried it again I'd be escorted out.

    Hate the TC upper deck...It really is steep. Reliant has much better seating in the upper decks...

    Just IMO

    Thanks everyone for their help. Makes me less nervous about sitting in the upper section at NRG (I will forever call it Reliant, I still occasionally find myself calling Minute Maid Park Enron).

    First rule of the Leg Room, don't talk about the Leg Room, but I must say, it's SPECTACULAR!
