Live Nation Selling Tickets Without Service Fees




Thinking about buying tickets for an upcoming Live Nation show? Then buy 'em tomorrow.

The concert giant has declared June 3 "No Service Fee Wednesdays." Not sure why it's plural, since the offer's only good for one day, but it's a pretty good deal, especially if you like classic rock in an outside venue.

Starting at 12:01 a.m. and running for the next 24 hours, music fans have the chance to scoop up tons of tickets to upcoming Live Nation shows (which include Nautica, Blossom and Time Warner Cable Amphitheater concerts) without paying those hefty service fees — which usually tag on an extra $80 or $90 plus one of your limbs.

So after buying Nickelback, Toby Keith and, um, Michael Stanley tickets, you'll have plenty of cash leftover for beer and the other things that make summer concerts so great. Go here for more info. —Michael Gallucci
