No Service Fees For Live Nation Shows
Live Nation's eliminating service fees this June for all the tickets sold at all their amphitheaters throughout the country. I don't know if that's such a good idea; some of those service fees jack up the cost of a ticket by almost double sometimes. By eliminating them throughout the month of June, Live Nation only makes people aware that their Kings of Leon concert ticket would be double the price if they weren't touring in the summer.
Anyway, tickets will be available today until Wednesday, June 30. Shows for the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, the Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, San Diego State's Open Air Theatre and the San Manuel Amphitheater in Devore are affected, and that means if you buy your tickets from Livenation.com, your Green Day, Kings Of Leon, Tom Petty and Heartbreakers, Dave Matthews Band or 311/The Offspring and will be less of an eye-gouger than usual.
