General Rules

For Drop-Offs – There is often a drop off area at the corner of Lincoln and College streets. This may vary depending on traffic flow for each event but this is usually the case.

Colonial Life Arena Policy: All persons and items entering Colonial Life Arena are subject to inspection. Please visit to see a full list of prohibited items.
Please note that these can vary by show and change without notice.
There is no re-entry.

Alcohol sales: Beer, wine and soft drinks are all available at specific events subject to crowd management policies and regulations. Patrons are required to have a valid driver’s license from any state, military ID, passport, or valid government issued ID.

Designated Driver Program: In effort to increase awareness of guest responsibility at concerts, the Colonial Life Arena, in partnership with KW Beverage, has launched a Designated Driver Program that encourages guests to volunteer as designated drivers to and from Colonial Life Arena. Fans of legal drinking age with a valid I.D. can sign the Designated Driver pledge. Upon sign-up, the designated driver pledges to refrain from drinking at the concert and provide responsible transportation for all members of their group. In return, designated drivers will receive a free coupon for a soft drink or bottled water and will be entered into a drawing to win a Designated Driver gift package. Winners will be announced by the end of the show by email. *Not applicable to all shows.

Alert Cab: KW Beverage will sponsor the first $10 of a cab ride fee for anyone leaving Colonial Life Arena after a concert and heading to their home residence or hotel in Richland or Lexington County. Cabs will be visible outside of Colonial Life Arena on Lincoln Street. Look for the official Yellow Checkered Cab Manager by fountain in front of Colonial Life Arena to take advantage of the program. *Some restrictions may apply and is not applicable to all shows.

Children Rules

The age for requiring a ticket varies per show. Please visit the individual event page for more information that will be more accurate for each show. If a child is going to sit in a seat, they will need a ticket regardless of age. If the child is going to sit in the parents lap they must still adhere to the age policy for purchasing a ticket. For example: If the show requires a ticket for children 2 and older but a 3 year old is going to sit in the parents lap, the child will require a ticket.


General Tip: ARRIVE EARLY: Please arrive at least one-hour prior to show time. Due to parking, lines at the box office and potential security scans, you may be delayed more than expected. Please arrive early to guarantee you will not miss any of the show.

Group Sales: Number of tickets to qualify for group discount varies by show. Please check the individual event page for more accurate information.
