Cheap Seats are seats in which your parents,grandparents,uncle, and so on buy when they cant afford the good seats. They are usually high up and might be reffered to as the "nosebleed section"
When my dad took me to my first Yankee game he bought us seats that were very high up. They were very cheap so I guess they were what you could call "cheap seats"

(From the expression "view from the cheap seats") A metaphor for a person's point of view when they are not directly involved in a situation, but wish to politely comment on it anyway.
"Excuse me guys, this is just my opinion and the view from the cheap seats, but may I suggest you do this a different way?"
