Zoned General Admission Seating – For the 2021-22 season, seating for all Mainstage events will be general admission by zone – two or three zones on the main floor plus one zone in the balcony. Because of potential changes in allowable seating capacities and configurations, this plan allows for seating flexibility, provides patron health protections, and reduces potential disruption for ticket holders.

Online Live Stream Option – Knowing that some people may not be ready or able to attend in-person events right away, select events will be available for live stream viewing from home.
