Last week’s debut of “No Service Fee Wednesday” generated a sales spike 500% higher than the average number of tickets sold on a typical Wednesday, as music fans everywhere took advantage of Live Nation’s no service fee offer, which helped more concertgoers get to more shows for less money.
“Music fans, we heard you loud and clear,” said Michael Rapino, President and Chief Executive Officer of Live Nation. “So we have made ‘No Service Fee Wednesday’ even bigger and better by making even more tickets more affordable. Our job is to get as many fans as possible to the show to see their favorite artists. We’re helping to do that by dropping the service fee on all tickets in our amphitheaters this Wednesday only at LiveNation.com.”
