Live Nation gets No Fee Wednesday right this time around


Fees are the scourge of many a concertgoer's experience -- these little additions can quickly turn a no brainer ticket purchase into one that requires an investigation of your checking account.

Ticket sellers aren't' oblivious to the fact that this nickel and dime attitude ticks off their customers, which prompted one seller, LiveNation, to start a summer promotion which featured no fee lawn seats.

Unfortunately the first time this promotion went live it was hardly fee-free; LiveNation was still charging parking and facility fees on many of the included lawn seats.

After a public lashing here and on Rolling Stone's Web site, LiveNation has responded and cut the fees from hundreds of shows for the rest of today, which can save anywhere from $13-20 compared to buying Thursday. Don't forget to get the discounted price you need to order before midnight tonight.
