“I read the blogs and emails listening to what concert fans are saying. They’ve been really clear, they want a break on ticket prices in these tough economic times,” said Michael Rapino, President and Chief Executive Officer of Live Nation. “So we launched No Service Fee Wednesday and removed the service fee on lawn tickets. Then we went a step further last week and eliminated fees on all amphitheatre tickets. These past two Wednesdays we sold a lot more tickets than we normally do. We kept listening and fans asked us to take it a step further and eliminate all fees. So for this Wednesday we’ve decided to go all in — one all-in ticket price for all lawn tickets — only $24.99 with no additional fees of any kind.”
As with the past two weeks, the offer kicks off at 12:01 a.m. local time on Wednesday, June 17, and will run for ONLY 24 hours at www.LiveNation.com.
