I hate when I buy concert tickets and the price of the ticket is practically doubled by excessive charges and fees. Well, tomorrow—that’s June 3rd, people—I’ll be able to dry my tears. To appease frustrated fans, LiveNation.com is nixing all service fees tomorrow for any tickets bought to amphitheater shows. “No Service Fee Wednesday” begins at 12:01am and lasts for 24 hours. And on scattered Wednesdays for the rest of the summer, Live Nation will be running other promotions. [Billboard]
So here’s whose tickets we’re gonna snag for cheap tomorrow.
- Blink 182. Blink 182, the SoCal pop-punk band who you fell in love with in high school, have reunited after five years to hit the road, and they’re bringing Fall Out Boy and Weezer with them. They’re promising to play the hits, so it’s going to be a nice summer throwback. [Live Nation Dates]
- Dave Matthews Band. College rock icons Dave Matthews Band have returned to touring after losing their saxophonist last summer. If you’ve never seen them perform live, it should not be missed. [Live Nation Dates]
- Toby Keith. America’s Toughest Tour is sure to be a mega-event now that he’s got his 25th number one single, “God Love Her,” under his belt. This country music bad boy is rocking out with opener Trace Adkins. [Live Nation Dates]
- John Legend. The Grammy-Award winning pianist and soul singer will be performing with special guest India Arie. [Live Nation Dates]
- No Doubt. Holla back! Gwen Stefani and the crew are back. No Doubt’s mix of ska, reggae and rock-steady is a perfect soundtrack for the summer of 2009. Or 1999. Whatever. [Live Nation Dates]
