As part of Live Nation's continuing No Service Fee Wednesday (now going by the initials NSFW, which caused me to open the press release quite a bit quicker than I might have otherwise, I'll have to admit), Live Nation is once again offering tickets for select shows at an "all-in" ticket price of $29.99 each when purchased at livenation.com before midnight tonight. This week, they're throwing parking plus a free hot dog and soda into the deal. Follow the jump for the full list of concerts offering the deal.
However, if you're fast with the e-mail and happen to be a fan of The Fray or Jack's Mannequin, you may not even have to buy tickets--or hot dogs and drinks--at all. The first person to e-mail me with the subject "Kill The Heartless Messenger" will win a pair of tickets, plus vouchers for two hot dogs and two drinks.
Update: Contest over. Congrats to our winner.
