Concerts & Special Events

Will there be special events (concerts, Broadway shows, community events, etc.) at State Farm Center during the renovation project?

Unfortunately, due to a very tight construction schedule and general project timeline, State Farm Center will not be hosting concerts or other special events until the renovation is complete in Fall of 2016. However, State Farm Center will remain the home of Fighting Illini men's and women's basketball during construction. Home games will be played at State Farm Center, with renovation work continuing in and around the building during the season. Please pardon our dust as we work to improve our home-court advantage.

As a premium seating member, will I be able to purchase my suite/premium seat for other special events?

The newly renovated State Farm Center will have the flexibility to accommodate many different seating configurations, which will help attract a wide variety of concerts/shows. Depending on the specific configuration of a given show/concert, some premium seating areas may not be available for purchase. Every effort will be made to assist our premium seating members with ticket opportunities for these events. However, specific seat locations can not be guaranteed.

If I am not a premium seating member for men's basketball, will I still be able to purchase a suite or premium seat for a concert or show?

Depending upon the specific configuration of the show or concert, some premium seating opportunities may be an option based on availability.
