Hate Service Fees? Live Nation Has You Covered! (For One Day, At Least)
It's easy to hate on Live Nation, but they've been involved in some alright stuff lately, like the Blink 182 lawn seats that cost $20, straight-up--inclusive of parking and service fees and all that yakkety yak. The latest is "no service fees Wednesdays," which will run throughout the summer and starts this Wednesday (tomorrow!), June 3. As the name suggests, it removes dreaded service fees from lawn tickets from all sorts of big shows, like 311, Aerosmith, Coldplay, No Doubt and Dave Matthews Band--all shows coming to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine this summer.
Giant corporations and the consumer--the recession makes strange bedfellows, apparently. Full details at Live Nation's official site.
