Live Nation Gives Concert Fans Something to Sing About With "No Service Fee Wednesdays"

Live Nation wants to help you save money in this trying economy. The concert promoter will eliminate its service fees on more than five million lawn seats and hundreds of concerts throughout North America beginning Wednesday, June 3 for a 24 hour event.

No Service Fee Wednesdays will kick off June 3, offering music fans some of the lowest prices of the summer minus the ticket service fees on any Live Nation.com-ticketed ampitheater show.

"Summer concerts are a great escape in these tough times," said Michael Rapino, President and Chief Executive Officer of Live Nation via a press release sent to the New Times. "We wanted to do something that had ever been done before and "No Service Fee Wednesdays" provide incredible value to millions of music fans to attend the hottest concerts this summer."

The summer promotion is not valid in combination with other special pricing offers. Tickets without service fees are available at all Live Nation-ticketed amphitheaters for concerts including 311, Aerosmith, Blink-182, Coldplay, Brad Paisley and others. 

The concert promoter says it plans on having several other No Service Fee Wednesdays this summer as part of an effort to coax music fans to its summer shows.
