The artist lineup and Advance Student and general public on-sale ticket dates have been announced for “Common Ground for Peace”, a two-day forum led by the spiritual leader of Tibet, His Holiness the Dalai Lama.  Running Oct. 8-9, the event schedule will include academic panel discussions for students and faculty, a public talk by the Dalai Lama and a festival-style music event dubbed the One World Concert.

A special SU/ESF Advance Student sale for the One World Concert will begin on Friday, September 7 at 2 p.m. EDT. It will be offered online only, and will end at midnight, Sunday, Sept 9 or until the student allotment is sold out.  The Advance Student price is $25. Additional convenience/facility fees apply.

You must be a full-time SU or ESF student to qualify for the Advance Student sale.  These will be no paper tickets for this sale, as the “ticket” will be encoded on your SU/ESF ID Card. Students can click here to order starting at 2 p.m. on Friday.

Sale to the general public will begin Monday, September 10 at 10 a.m. EDT. Regular sale ticket prices range from $35 - $55, with a limited number of Gold Circle tickets available.  Tickets will be sold via Ticketmaster and the Carrier Dome Box Office or 888-DOMETIX.

Tickets to the One World Concert include admission to both the public talk by the Dalai Lama and the musical performances.

Proceeds from the concert will be used to advance international relief efforts and fund a new scholarship named for Bassel Al Shahade, the SU graduate student killed earlier this year in Syria while making a documentary film on the violence in his homeland.

The Oct. 9 appearance of His Holiness The Dalai Lama and the One World Concert in the Carrier Dome will follow a panel discussion to be held at SU on Oct. 8. While the panel discussion will have extremely limited seating, the One World Concert event will offer greater opportunity for members of the public to see and hear His Holiness in person.
