Obstructed view means you’ll be unable to see the entire stage from those seats. You’ll have either an incomplete view because of the position of the seats, or something will be in your line of sight – like a pole, speakers, or the sound board.

We sell these seats because for many fans an obstructed view is not a problem, and the tickets are clearly labeled at time of purchase.

Generally, performances will not be canceled due to unfavorable weather conditions and ticket refunds will not be available. In rare instances when a show is canceled due to weather, information will be posted on our website and ticket holders for that specific performance will be notified via email. Updates will also be posted on Stephens Auditorium social media channels. Guests may contact the Iowa State Center Ticket Office at (515) 294-2479 or ticketoffice@iastate.edu for specific performance information.
