Live Nation’s National Concert Week offers $20 all-in tickets for hundreds of shows


Summer 2018 seems to be the summer that every single musician has decided to hit the road on some kind of tour. Of course, for those of us who are not financial secure, the slew of shows make it hard to decide which to buy tickets for and which we will need to pass on until the next time. On Tuesday (April 24), Live Nation announced their $20 All-In Tickets in honor of National Concert Week. For a week, the event tickets giant will be offering $20 tickets for a slew of popular tours that will hit North America during the summer months.

The $20 tickets deal will begin on Monday, April 30, at 8 a.m. local time and conclude the following Tuesday, May 8, at 11:59 p.m. local time. The deal does not include ticket delivery and print-at-home fees.

While lists like this typically include tours that are not selling very well, Live Nation has made sure to include some of their biggest tour to hit the road during the summer. Fans will be able to choose from over 2,000 Live Nation shows from all genres of music including rock, pop, hip-hop, rap, Latin, and even speaking tours (looking at you Joe Biden). The massive list includes some of our favorite acts like Paramore (Tour Five), 5 Seconds of Summer (Meet You There tour), the final Vans Warped tour, Thirty Seconds to Mars (“Monolith” tour), Weezer and the Pixies (their co-headlining tour), Taking Back Sunday and Coheed and Cambria (their joint tour), Charlie Puth (Voicenotes tour), Kesha and Macklemore (their co-headlining tour), and many more.

Live Nation and Uber Team Up for Music Festival Transportation

It’s time to go to one of the biggest music festivals that you have ever been to, but sadly it’s out of your city and renting a car is completely out of the question because have you seen what they charge for one car at these places? And leaving the venue after the show, forget about it!

So what is a music lover to do?

Well, it looks like Live Nation and Uber have come up with some kind of a solution to this conundrum: team up and have Uber drivers give those unfortunate people a lift, at a charge of course.

Live Nation, in attempt to also get attendees to leave their cars at home and help those stuck in a bind, have revealed their new plan to add ride programs to several of their venues. The new program would include official drop-off and pick-up spots for Uber riders, so good-bye are the days of fighting fellow concertgoers for a taxi.

The Live Nation app will offer an Uber option which will means attendees won’t need to manually input a destination. The venue drop-off address will automatically be inserted when requesting a ride to a show at a participating Live Nation venue.

To help with the new program, Live Nation venues will begin to feature Uber signage or branded-booths to further assist attendees as well as have on-site staffers to help with promotional codes and such.

“Fans want the journey to and from a concert to be as smooth as possible,” said Russell Wallach, President of Live Nation Media & Sponsorship. “Uber offers a convenient alternative to driving for riders to any event, and we are thrilled about the experience this brings for all of our fans.”

“We’re excited to create this marketing partnership with Live Nation to provide a hassle-free experience for concertgoers,” said Amy Friedlander Hoffman, head of Uber’s West Coast business development. “Fans just want to enjoy the show, and the new Uber ride program means they can get in and out with the touch of a button.”

As of now, Uber is providing transportation to 20 music festivals as well as 62 Live Nation venues across the country. Check out some of the music festivals already benefiting from the union.

Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) – New York, NY
Sasquatch! – George, WA
EDC Las Vegas – Las Vegas, NV
Windy City Lakeshake – Chicago, IL
Farmborough – New York, NY
Faster Horses – Brooklyn, MI
Jamboree in the Hills – Belmont, OH
Watershed – Quincy, WA
HARD Summer Music Festival – Los Angeles, CA

Escape: All Hallow’s Eve – Los Angeles, CA
Voodoo Music & Arts Experience – New Orleans, LA
HARD Day of the Dead – Los Angeles, CA
EDC Orlando – Orlando, FL

As of now, there’s not project time frame as to when all of this will officially be implemented.

Faith No More to Stream Upcoming Concert

Faith No More Tickets

Faith No More have announced that they are teaming up with Yahoo! and Live Nation to broadcast one of their upcoming tour dates.

Tomorrow evening (May 8), Yahoo! will exclusively be streaming the band’s show at The Fillmore in Detroit beginning at 9:15 p.m. EDT.

This tour comes as a massive gift to fans in the United States who have been waiting years for this to happen. Since 2009 when the band reunited, they have not toured any U.S. cities. According to keyboardist Roddy Bottum, the U.S. was not exactly a high priority tour destination for them, so they toured elsewhere instead.

“We didn’t really care to do America, it wasn’t a big priority for us,” said Bottum.

“We wanted to do shows that made us happy and go to places that we wanted to go, and none of us had any desire to travel across America.”

While we feel like that’s kind of a burn, its nice to know that they changed their mind and have decided to tour the U.S. for some Spring stops with Le Butcherettes and then once again in late July with the newly reunited Refused.

Tour dates and tickets can be found here.

Faith No More also announced they would be releasing a brand new album, the first in over a decade on May 19. The album will be titled Sol Invictus and is set to be released through Ipecac Recordings.

Live Nation Buys Controlling Stake in Bonnaroo

Live Nation can now add another music festival to their long growing roster of music-centric events; Bonnaroo.

Last night, Billboard and several other publications began to report that the large concert venture had purchased a controlling stake in the Tennessee-based music festival.

As of now, Live Nation owns stakes in over 60 music festivals including: Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds, T in the Park, and many more.

According to reports, Superfly Production and AC Entertainment, who founded the festival, will continue to run the day-to-day operations for the festival which is set to take place in early June.

“We are strengthening our commitment to cater the best possible experience at Bonnaroo,” said Rick Farman, co-founder of Superfly.

“Through this partnership with Live Nation, we’re even more empowered to enhance the festival while preserving the integrity of the event that we’ve thoughtfully built over the past 14 years.”

“Partnering with Live Nation is a milestone for Bonnaroo. It opens up tremendous opportunities for us to continue to evolve the Bonnaroo experience in an exciting powerful way,” said Ashley Capps, founder AC Entertainment.

But the controlling stake in the festival isn’t the only thing Live Nation has acquired. The concert promoter has also purchased a share of the Bonnaroo property, Great Stage Park, also known as “The Farm.”

No telling what this means for the festival. Some say that it could be a good thing, like the founders claim, but it can also work against them especially if Live Nation decides to up the price of tickets which already costs attendees $350 for the weekend.

All that can be done is sit back and see.

This year’s line-up is set to take place from June 11-14 and will feature performances by Billy Joel, Kendrick Lamar, and Deadmau5

Iconic Sunset Strip House of Blues To Be Replaced By “Luxury Lodging”


It’s the end of an era for the Sunset Strip’s House of Blues.
According to a report by Bloomberg, the iconic club which located in West Hollywood is set to be torn down to make room for a new hotel/condominium complex.

Sadly, this is an ongoing trend of tearing down iconic places where performances can be seen just to bring in more inhabitants or over charging the venue to the point that they cannot survive the price increase.

The venue, which is owned by Live Nation, was opened in 1994 and has hosted many music from all genres of the music world.

The Bloomberg report states, “Some aging landmarks, like the House of Blues and Larry Flynt’s Hustler Hollywood erotica store, are on their way out, to be replced by luxury lodging by hoteliers including Ian Schrager.”

This building which is currently being discussed by developer Combined Properties Inc. to take the Sunset Strip location, will include 149 hotel room, 40 condos, five rental units, and an entertainment venue where the House of Blues currently resides.

But all is not lost for the House of Blues. Live Nation representative, Ashton Spaz told the Los Angeles Times that the company is currently looking for a new place to move the music venue to.

“Regarding the story, our legendary House of Blues on Sunset Boulevard – the flagship for 20 years of our popular venues around the country – will operate business as usual while we look for a new home.

“We have a terrific relationship with our landlord who has other plans to develop the property and we’re working together on a very smooth transition. We have two-plus years to find that perfect spot for a new Los Angeles House of Blues home with no interruption for music fans. Stay tuned. The best is yet to come!”

Hopefully, that can be done before La La Land takes another victim for just for the rich and untalented.
