Live Nation Drops Service Fees For A Month

09:01 AM Tuesday 6/1/10 |   |

The summer concert season gets rolling as Live Nation delivers its own economic stimulus package to fans by axing service fees at its owned and operated amphitheatres.

We wouldn’t blame you if you’re sweating this year’s summer season. The season itself is shaping up to be a winner in the star-power category, what with acts like Brad Paisley, Goo Goo Dolls, KISS, Rihanna and Tom Petty & Heartbreakers hitting the road. But gotta pay if you wanna play and there’s no denying the fact that recent economic woes have left more than a few of us strapped for cash.

Live Nation’s June deal is pretty much like last year’s “No Service Charge” Wednesdays except it’s for the entire month of June as the promotion company drops service fees on nearly 8 million tickets available through its website for more than 700 shows and 110 artists.

“A fan in every seat is our mission this summer,” Live Nation President / CEO Michael Rapino said. “We know that’s tough in this economy, so it’s our job to find a way to make concerts more affordable.”

So, what do you think? By dropping service fees during June at its owned and operated amphitheatres, has Live Nation convinced you to purchase more tickets? Please take the time to answer our informal little poll before continuing today’s journey on the Web.

    Angie - Live Nation, nor any other promoter that i know of, is definitely not "rolling in cash". In fact, Live Nation is losing millions.

    If you want to be upset with someone that IS rolling in the cash, try the bands and their outrageous guaranteed fees. Concerts have become like movies, you make money selling food instead of the ticket itself.

    I know I'm naive to suggest it but it'd be awesome if they would re-imburse people who already previously purchased tickets for the eligible shows.

    How about if Live Nation (the ruination of the concert biz) lowers their outrageous ticket prices? I paid $100 for a 90 minute Neil Young show!

    Ticketfinder.com you may not have service fees at checkout, however your ticket prices are ridiculous high.  You are a secondary ticket agency.  I would much rather pay the live nation service fees then the price for your tickets.  Advertise somewhere else!

    Big deal.  We have not charged a service fee at check out for more than five years and we also have a free delivery option.

    hey thanks but i'll settle for just drastically lower fees every day for always, live nation. it's kind of tough times for us minions all the time, not just for one month. i know you're all rolling in cash but this is like giving a homeless man a buck one day and thinking you're good on your deeds maximum forever. if you can afford this now, why not always?
