Tickets for Bolton lecture available at three locations

Free tickets for the Sept. 8 E.N. Thompson Forum on World Issues featuring U.S. United Nations Ambassador John Bolton are being distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at the Lied Ticket Office, the Nebraska Union and Westfield Gateway, 61st and O streets.

The lecture is Sept. 8 at 3:30 p.m. at the Lied Center for Performing Arts. It is free and open to the public, but because of the anticipated level of interest, free reserved-seat tickets will be distributed.

Ticket distribution started Aug. 28. They will be distributed in person only at the Lied Ticket Office (no Internet orders), at the shopping concierge center at Westfield Gateway and at the service desk at the Nebraska Union. Numbers will be limited to two tickets per person. Ticketing questions can be directed to the Lied Ticket Office, 472-4747.

Doors for the Bolton lecture will open at 2:30 p.m. Sept. 8 and ticket holders must be seated by 3:10 p.m., at which time non-ticket holders will be admitted to any empty seats. No cameras, backpacks, bags or briefcases will be allowed at the Lied Center during the lecture. Attendees are asked to plan for possible extra time to enter because of security. Those not obtaining tickets, in the event of a sell-out, can wait in line the afternoon of the event for possible seat openings from no-shows.

An overflow viewing area will be set up at the Van Brunt Visitors Center. The lecture will be broadcast live online at, Lincoln Time Warner Cable Channel 21, UNL campus TV channel 8, NEBSAT 102 and KRNU radio station (90.3 FM).

The next E.N. Thompson Forum lecture, 7:30 p.m. Sept. 20 by author Azar Nafisi, will also be a ticketed lecture. Tickets for "Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books," the 11th Annual Governor's Lecture in the Humanities, co-sponsored by the Nebraska Humanities Council and the University of Nebraska, will be distributed free beginning Sept. 11.
