Live Nation Offering $29.99 All-In Tickets on Wednesday, Live Nation Being Sued Over “No Service Fee Wednesdays”

Live Nation

This Wednesday, Live Nation is adding a new wrinkle to its “No Service Fee” promotion, and offering concert goers a “one price” deal on all lawn tickets at Live Nation ticketed amphitheaters.

“Now fans have asked that we take it one step further and give a truly all-in price and so this week we’re offering a $29.99, one price deal that includes the ticket, parking, all fees and a concert meal.”

In other news, the very same Live Nation is being sued by a New Jersey resident over its so-called “No Service Fee” Wednesday’s promotion:

A Freehold concertgoer is the lead plaintiff in a class action lawsuit against Live Nation that accuses the company, which manages the PNC Bank Arts Center, of violating state consumer protection laws by padding ticket prices for events at the Holmdel amphitheater.

The lawsuit, filed in Superior Court in Mercer County last week, claims Live Nation uses deceptive pricing practices, including charging a mandatory parking fee (typically $6 a ticket) regardless of the ticket holder’s intent to park a car at the venue, and a “charity fee” of between 25 cents and $1.25 without identifying any organization benefiting from the fee.

Locally, the new “all-in $29.99 concert experience” would include tickets for shows at Jones Beach and the PNC Bank Arts Center. Tickets for this week’s installment of “No Service Fee Wednesday” go on sale at 12:01 a.m. local time on July 8, 2009 at See some of the artists you might find at these shows after the jump.

  1. At my local venue the “box office” fee is $7 and it is actually the parking fee.

    However, they don’t tell you it’s a parking fee, in fact, they advertise that parking is free (when in reality it is not). Which is why when Ozzfest was free for tickets, they heavily debated charging $7 for parking that one show ($7 x 20,000 patrons = $140,000 the venue lost just because they couldn’t charge the “box office” fee).
