Concert pass for $49.99 -- a deal?

Live Nation venues offer all concerts for one price

With the recession taking a bite out of concert ticket sales, concert promoters have come up with all kinds of deals and discounts this year to lure us into the venues. For good music, we don't need too much luring, if we can afford the tickets.


Live Nation has continued to offer promotions every Wednesday with discounts on concerts nationwide.


Now, Live Nation is offering a concert pass. The Live Nation Club Passport gives music lovers entry into every concert the rest of the year at participating venues for $49.99 -- if the show isn't sold out. That includes all fees except parking.


Here's how it works. Every Monday, Passport holders can log on to or follow LiveNation on Facebook or Twitter to see the list of participating shows in their area. If they find a show they want to see, they bring their Live Nation Club Passport to the club's box office and get in.


Whether this is a good deal obviously depends upon how many shows you want to see at participating venues. Some of our best memories come from concerts with prices we are ashamed to confess. On the other hand, we've also got some very good memories of free concerts.
