What security will I have to go through in order to attend a performance?

ASU Gammage values the safety and security of our patrons and will begin implementing enhanced security measures at events this year. This may lead to increased time to enter the venue. In an effort to ensure the safety of all patrons entering ASU Gammage, patrons will be screened using metal detectors and all carry-in items will be searched. To allow for these security measures, guests are encouraged to arrive early.

Large bags, backpacks, duffels and oversized purses are restricted or items that exceed 11" x 11" x 15" in dimension will not be allowed into the venue. In order to move through security quickly, we ask that patrons keep bag size to a minimum, small and medium sized purses are allowed. By tendering your ticket and entering the venue, you consent to such searches and waive any related claims that you might have against the ASU, Broadway Across America, the performers and their affiliates. If you elect to not consent to the searches, you will be denied entry to ASU Gammage. Every guest must pass through a security checkpoint. No re-entries are permitted.

The following items are prohibited at ASU Gammage:  Weapons: Guns / Ammunition / Knives / Box Cutters (All knives restricted, regardless of size), large bags, backpacks, duffels and oversized purses are restricted or items that exceed 11" x 11" x 15" in dimension will not be allowed into the venue, Air Horns, Balloons or Inflatable Items, Grocery / Brown Bags, Poles / Tripods, Leatherman or similar tools (Scissors, knitting needles, etc.), Sharp and/or Pointed Objects, Mace / Pepper Spray, Spray Containers / Aerosols / Flammable Liquids, Explosives / Fireworks, Laser Lights / Pointers, Containers of Any Type – Glass Bottles, Cans, Thermos Bottles (Water bottles OK, must be empty, clear and plastic in nature), Foods that can be used as projectiles (Oranges, apples, pears, eggs, etc.), Unopened packages and Signs.
