Music to our Ears!
Concert tickets are quickly becoming a luxury...me, I try to win tickets but often to no avail as the radio station lines are jammed (nothing new!). My husband sometimes scores tickets through colleagues, but the opportunities don't come up often. So what are you to do if you want to see a big-name act and don't have the mega-bucks to shell out for seats? First, be willing to consider less than premium seats...the sound quality will still be good and big screens in the venues (and binoculars of course!) still provide a good experience.
And don't doubt for a minute that your idols are not aware of the economic concerns that you face. Check out the article "Bands Offer Concert Deals in a Tough Economy" (4/10/09) at:
Keith Urban offered some tickets as low as $20/seat to accommodate fans on a budget. And "No Doubt is giving away a digital download of their entire catalog in exchange for the purchase of a premium ticket ($42.50 before taxes and fees)..." And the list goes on...Kudos to those giving a regular fan a break!
