How do I purchase tickets?
Why can't I find an event on the website?
Below are a few reasons or suggestions to help you with your search:
- No performances are currently scheduled for The Broadmoor World Arena, date, or artist you may have selected.
- The event may not be announced yet. Sign up for our e-newsletter “Backstage Pass” to get the latest performance announcements. Sign up here.
- The Broadmoor World Arena will only list an event after all information is confirmed with artist management. Events are always listed in time to purchase tickets the day they are put on sale.
- Check the proper spelling of the artist, band, or building. All words must be spelled correctly.
- Make sure there is spacing between your words (i.e. John Hiatt, not johnhiatt)
- The event may not be officially promoted by Broadmoor World Arena or AEG Live. You may want to try finding the event on the Artist’s official website.
How do I purchase accessible seating?
Accessible seating is available for purchase online, on the phone, or at the box office. To purchase online, click “Buy Tickets” and select “Accessible Seating Options” on the purchase page.
I have a large group coming to a show. Do you do group discounts?

What is the PPC and BWA doing to help the environment?
The Broadmoor World Arena strives to present world-class entertainment within the Pikes Peak Region. One key to the success of that goal is to provide exceptionally safe and clean venues – both inside The Broadmoor World Arena and in our larger community. Our team has implemented green initiatives designed to keep our venue and our community safe and clean.
On your next visit to the Arena, please notice the Recycling Bins located throughout the Concourse Area. We recycle paper, plastic, cardboard, aluminum and glass. We encourage our guests to do the same.
You may also recognize different toilet paper and paper towel dispensers in the restrooms. These dispensers use coreless paper rolls.
Where possible, we have replaced T12 fluorescent lights with T8 fluorescent lights, reducing electrical consumption in those lights by 34%. We have even begun implementing energy saving technology on our motors and cooling towers.
All of the cleaning products now being used at The Broadmoor World Arena meet and/or exceed Green Industry standards. They are all EPA, Green Seal and SEGC 114 certified.
Even our newsletter has “gone green.” The Backstage Pass (official newsletter of The Broadmoor World Arena and Pikes Peak Center) is now exclusively sent via email. If you are interested in upcoming events, priority sale and meet and greet opportunities, please sign up for the newsletter.
We invite you to help us as we continue this important work.
- Please take the opportunity to use the recycling bins.
- Please tell an Arena staff person if you notice running water or leaking faucets.
- Please sign up for the Backstage Pass e-newsletter to learn about upcoming events and opportunities.
- Please share other environmentally friendly ideas with us by email.
