Welcome to the newly created blog of SCOPE Productions with insight on various live concerts, album reviews, and overall happenings inside the music industry. Keep posted for more information, but for now, here is a little information about us:
SCOPE Productions is the University of Iowa’s Student Commission for Programming and Entertainment. Based in Iowa City, Iowa, SCOPE is charged with bringing quality concerts and entertainment to the University of Iowa campus and the Iowa City / Eastern Iowa community.
If you want to experience Iowa City, The University of Iowa is your only choice for decent sized venues. SCOPE’s venues outsize any club in town by 700 tickets. Furthermore, the members of SCOPE are students of the music industry and seasoned concert professionals.
The Iowa Memorial Union has four venues available, and our campus is also host to a major arena, two beautiful theaters, a huge riverside park with capacity over 10,000 and the newly added Fieldhouse. Bands such as The Smashing Pumpkins, Rage Against the Machine, and Phish found our Iowa Memorial Union Main Lounge to be the perfect start for their early careers and more recently, Fall Out Boy, Modest Mouse, Bright Eyes have visited it as well. Whether an arena show or an intimate acoustic set, SCOPE Productions and The University of Iowa has the right place to accommodate any act of any stature.
