No Service Fee

"Live Nation announced that it is expanding its "No Service Fee" program to every single available ticket in each of its amphitheaters this Wednesday, June 10th, for 24 hours only, exclusively at LiveNation.com.

Last week's debut of "No Service Fee Wednesday" generated a sales spike 500% higher than the average number of tickets sold on a typical Wednesday, as music fans everywhere took advantage of Live Nation's no service fee offer, which helped more concertgoers get to more shows for less money."

Too bad LiveNation has tickets to extremely shitty shows. God forbid Bowery Presents pull this stunt.

We are lucky the Nation is still aLIVE, after being nearly bled to death by "service fees" and ticket charges tack-ons.

Livenation is even worse than ticketmaster with charges. It is close to $15 a ticket.

It seems that people would be more appreciative of Live Nation's no service fee day...

Notice that little asterisk at the end of "All" Amphitheaters and "All" Tickets. It doesn't apply to Irving Plaza.

Fucking liars.

Are people really this stupid?!? Since when is Irving Plaza an amphitheater? Go back to school and study English instead of doing bong hits.

Why not call it No Amphitheater Service Fee Day then?

No fees at amphitheaters. hmmm so you are in luck if you plan on catching a concert in Greece. Yanni Live at the Acropolis, anyone?

Isn't this the same as when a clothing company jacks up the prices and then has a sale?

The last 3 times I tried to buy tickets on live nation the website froze when I clicked to complete the order. I love paying 20-30% service fees to a company who can't even get a descent website together.

This sounds like an offer I'm sorry I didn't know about at the right time. I haven't heard of similar offers lately. However I see everyone around here is upset and your arguments trigger an important question: is there really no honesty anymore where money is involved? There must be..
