Lied events canceled or rescheduled through April 16, 2020

All major events at the Lied Center for Performing Arts have been canceled or rescheduled through April 16, 2020. Lied Center Executive Director Bill Stephan said, “We are determined to do our part to protect the health and safety of our audiences, artists, volunteers, and staff - particularly those who are most vulnerable to this disease. The World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus a worldwide pandemic and we do not make these decisions lightly.”

CDC recommendations were issued on March 15, 2020 that gatherings of 50 people or more in the United States be canceled or postponed over the next eight weeks because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Governor Pete Ricketts has followed this recommendation and implemented this guidance for the state of Nebraska, asking all events and gatherings be less than 50 people.

The three options available to all patrons of rescheduled/canceled events are:

  1. Convert your current tickets to an “on-account” credit that can be used for a future Lied Center performance (including season tickets).
  2. Donate the value of your tickets back to the Lied Center (this would be tax-deductible as an in-kind gift); or
  3. Request a refund for the value of your tickets via credit card or check. (Please note that we do not keep credit card information on file, so we will need you to call our Ticket Office and speak to one of our staff members)
