Want to See Some of the Hottest Bands This Summer? It’ll Cost You Just $20
When’s the last time you went to a concert?
Not at that hole-in-the-wall venue you love for new and local acts — I’m talking the big ones. The amphitheaters. The stadiums.
Did your concert ticket bill (plus service charges and facility fees and that $15 beer you decided to splurge on) look more like a student-loan payment than a fun night out?
Yeah. Concert prices are no joke. Seeing your favorite act can quickly eat up that “meals/entertainment” line item on your monthly budget.
Want to go to a concert this summer or fall without that crazy-high price tag?
Live Nation has a treat for you: concert tickets for just $20.
