Live Nation is eliminating service fees for reserved and lawn seats purchased in June for shows at its 50 amphitheaters. Live Nation CEO said: ‘This is every show in every amphitheater. Basically, our entire summer inventory.’ About 60% of fans said dropped fees were the deciding factor in purchasing.
Jonas Brothers are offering fee-free tickets to their tour and promoting with a fanclub show Wednesday in Washington. Nick said: ‘With the tough economy, my brothers and I wanted to do something. We have a close relationship with our fans, and this is one way to help them out.
Growing up our family financial situation wasn’t that great, and we’d have to refrain from going to concerts.’ Kevin Jonas Sr., added: ‘I’ll speak as a dad. It can be difficult to buy one ticket, much less three or four. When you eliminate any fees, it makes it much more possible.’
