Group Sales: 17/18 Season Group Tickets will be available in July

Hosting a fabulous group of friends and family, or needing a unique event for a team outing? Think Lied. We will provide a gorgeous setting and world-class entertainment—you bring the guests!

Group events provide discounts not offered if each ticket is bought individually. Groups of 15 or more will receive a 10% discount per regular price ticket. If your group is 50 or more people, you will receive a 20% discount per regular price ticket and two free tickets for your group organizer. Another reason to consider ordering group tickets; pending availability, all seats will be together.

Group orders only pay one handling fee, which can be a significant savings over the facility fee charged on each individual ticket. For more information about group sales, please contact Matthew Boring by phone, 402.472.8510 or email

Please note that group discounts may be different or unavailable for performances presented by organizations who rent Lied Center facilities.


Half-price tickets are available to most Lied presentations for students who are paying activity fees from UNL, Nebraska Wesleyan University and Concordia University. Youth age 18 and under are also eligible for half-price tickets. UNL faculty and staff can receive a 10% discount on two tickets to Lied-presented events.
