Concert Tickets Going On Sale? Live Nation Announces Some $25 Tickets Starting May 10
If it sounds to good to be true it probably IS too good to be true, but if you're looking to score concert tickets for your favorite artists later this year without paying stupid money, you should check out Concert Week, courtesy of Live Nation, which kicks off May 10 and runs through May 16. Details are pending, but you may be able to pick up some $25 seats for a long list of artists. I know - I'll believe it when I see it, but it may be worth the time and effort to suspend your disbelief and give it a try.
Yes, this is the same Live Nation that seems to have a monopoly on live performances from coast to coast, the same Live Nation that posted a record $3.1 billion in revenue in Q1 of 2023, as the pandemic eased and people returned to see their favorite artists in person. Important caveat: the number of $25 "All-In" tickets (with fees included) may be limited for many of these concerts - so it pays to start clicking first thing Wednesday morning. Verizon and Rakuten subscribers can score tickets as early as today.
Nearly 300 artists and 3800 shows will be part of the mix, according to Live Nation, and tickets will be available starting 9am Wednesday, May 10, for the general public. As always, your results may vary, but a potential fire sale on concert tickets like this probably doesn't come around very often.
Nickelback, Bryan Adams, Jason Aldean, Pink, Janet Jackson, Tears For Fears, Willie Nelson, Lionel Richie, and The Wu-Tang Clan are among the artists that, in theory, on paper, will have performances going on sale starting tomorrow morning.
Hang on to that healthy case of skepticism - but it might pay to do some serious clicking around 9am Wednesday.
