General FAQs

Because there is an option to provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the event or a lab-based COVID-19 rapid test taken within 48 hours of the event, we are not offering refunds.

The Box Office will be open three hours prior to the scheduled event time. For assistance with managing existing tickets, please email rq.boxoffice@rosequarter.com.

Limited food and beverage will be available at Moda Center and Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Due to a staffing shortage, various locations in both arenas will be closed and food and beverage wait times may be longer than normal.
