When should I arrive?
Performances begin promptly at advertised time. Please allow ample time for parking and event traffic. Ushers will seat latecomers at an appropriate time to minimize disturbance and/or meet specific artist requests.

Doesn’t the Lied Center get enough income from ticket sales?
Ticket sales provide less than 40% of the funding needed to bring world-class artists to Lawrence. Our Friends of the Lied and grants from arts organizations and foundations help cover our costs and help ticket prices remain low.
Since the Lied Center is part of the University, don’t you have a lot of state funds allocated to your department?
As with all of the state agencies and university departments, those funds are shrinking each year and state funds have always been a small percentage of the Lied Center’s annual budget. That’s why ticket sales and contributions are so important, along with the income we get from renting the building to outside groups.
How much does it cost to bring in a performance?
The performing fees we pay are confidential and are always stipulated as confidential in the contracts we sign with the managers of performing artists and groups.
