Live Nation santas outside Irving Plaza - 7/14/2009 (Jason DeCrow/AP Images)
Live Nation
Live Nation

Live Nation has been dealing with the recession, or at least their recession, by putting tickets on sale like crazy this summer. They've been continuing week after week with their No Service Fee Wednesdays (for lawn tickets at amphitheater shows). This past Tuesday they sent multiple Santa Clauses to give out tickets outside Irving Plaza here in NYC. And there are $5.00 ticket promotions running for both Citi Cardmember holders and Subway sub eaters (code = Subway$5tix). NYC show tickets you can get for $5.00 include Pinback, Bob Mould, Son Volt, Alice in Chains AND STRYPER, Suffocation (playing with Necrophagist on Sunday), Marduk, Obituary, Vader and KMFDM, Brian Wilson in Westbury, and Motorhead, Psychedelic Furs, Happy Mondays, and Islands. Supposedly Pet Shop Boys are $5.00 too, but I can't get that to work.

Everyone stop getting your panties in a bunch about the pet shop boys password! I'm sure when it gets released it will be posted here.

Posted by Anonymous | July 16, 2009 1:33 PM

Plus the option for the $5 isn't even up. Just the 4 pack. So for now it is $40+ a ticket until tm release the line where you can enter the subway code...

Posted by Anonymous | July 16, 2009 1:35 PM

I called Live nation and they ay there are no more $5.00 tickets available (sold out) which is why it directs you right to the Tm website..

What have I done to deserve this :(

Posted by Anonymous | July 16, 2009 1:38 PM

Thank you for posting. I called TM and citicards and they couldn't figure out what was going on with the promo code.

Has anyone had the Billy Talent/Rise Against/Rancid show $5 ticket promo work? It's listed, but doesn't give you the option to enter the promo when you try to buy a ticket.

I just bought a ticket for the pet shop boys show on Sept 2nd on ticketmaster for $17.20 with all the fees with a citi card promotion. just find someone with a citi card to buy your tickets.

Posted by psbtix | August 17, 2009 11:17 AM

I just got two for $25.00 for Pet Shop Boys using the Citi card promotion..night one was old out for the promotion fyi.

you don't even need to use a citi card..just need to know the first six digits of someone's account.
