Lied Center postpones or cancels events through May 7

Lied Center for Performing Arts

All major events at the Lied Center for Performing Arts through May 7 have been canceled or rescheduled in response to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

“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,” said Bill Stephan, the Lied Center’s executive director. “The World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus a worldwide pandemic, and we do not make these decisions lightly.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued recommendations March 16 that gatherings of 10 people or more in the United States be canceled or postponed over the next eight weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Gov. Pete Ricketts has followed this recommendation and implemented this guidance for the state of Nebraska.

Rescheduled events:

  • Super Diamond, originally scheduled for March 13, has been rescheduled to 7:30 p.m. Jan. 30, 2021.

  • Michael Londra and the Celtic Fire, originally March 17, has been rescheduled to 7:30 p.m. March 17, 2021.

  • Kelli O'Hara, originally March 20, has been rescheduled to 4 p.m. Nov. 8.

  • “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Live,” originally March 22, has been rescheduled to March 9, 2021.

  • Boston Pops, originally April 5, has been rescheduled to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 8.

Canceled events:

  • Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s “Wizard of Oz” (scheduled for March 28-29)

  • “Pippin” (April 1-11)

  • A Capella Live (April 2)

  • Aspen Santa Fe Ballet (April 11)

  • Air Play (April 14)

  • Nebraska Jazz Orchestra (April 28)

All other events after April 16 are to be determined. The Lied Center and University of Nebraska are in communication with local health authorities regarding future events. Updates on April and May events will be provided as soon as possible. For more information, visit the Lied Center and University of Nebraska–Lincoln COVID-19 websites.

Ticket exchange, donation and refund options

The Lied Center offers refund flexibility to ticket holders of the rescheduled and canceled events.

For events that have been rescheduled, all previously issued tickets are valid for the new performance date, or a patron can select one of three options listed below.

  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 the Lied Center does not keep credit card information on file, so you will need to call the ticket office to speak to a staff member.)

The Lied Center ticket office lobby is currently closed to the public. Contact the ticket office by phone at 402-472-4747 or liedcustomerservice@unl.edu. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The Lied Center prides itself on exceptional customer service. In light of this unprecedented disruption to events, phone lines are expected to be busy and it may take longer than usual to speak to someone.

Please do not send credit card information via email or leave it in a voice-mail message.
