In case you haven't noticed, we, and everyone else (including Subway) have been kinda inundated with ticket offers and discounts from Live Nation all summer long.
Well, this week, the folks at the national booking/promotions superpower have put a few more worth-mentioning doozies into the pot.
First, there's this "Ultimate Access" deal, which involves Twitter and following them on Twitter and, yeah, some pretty convoluted rules for what is being called a "sweepstakes." But the payoff is pretty sweet, where the winning entrant gets free passes to every concert at a local Live Nation venue of its choice (in any of 38 cities--yes, including Dallas) for an entire year. Entries must must be submitted by August 31, and starts, well, immediately, far as I can tell.
As for the other
, though, is more local and more likely to be directly affect you--unless you're just that guy who always has the sun shining on him: The company is extending its No Service Fee Wednesday promotion to include not just Superpages.com Center, but, starting next week, the both the main room and the Cambridge Room at the House of Blues. After the jump, the complete list of new shows you can now buy tickets for without having to pay the extra couple o' bucks , uh, nevermind. Turns out that was only for last Wednesday.
