Are Ticket Sales In A Slump?All summer long Live Nation has been running 24 hour sales on lawn seats for its amphitheater shows. But this week the sale expands from the lawn all the way into the coveted reserve seats.
On Wednesday July 15th, in addition to the all-in $29.99 lawn ticket, fans can now also choose select $49.99 all-in reserved seats for many Live Nation amphitheater concerts. These all-in prices include a ticket, parking, ticketing fees, a hot dog and a soda. Tickets for this week’s installment of “No Service Fee Wednesday” go on sale at 12:01 a.m. local time at www.LiveNation.com.Of course the PR spin says nothing about slumping ticket sales.
“Last week’s offer was one of the most popular of the summer,” said Michael Rapino, President and Chief Executive Officer of Live Nation. “So we’ve decided to expand our all-in price concert experience into the reserved section of our amphitheaters, making even more tickets more affordable for music fans across the country.”
