Basically, for $50, you get to see “free unlimited” club shows for the rest of the year at The Fillmore NY at Irving Plaza and the Gramercy Theatre (I’m just listing the New York venues here).

LOS ANGELES – September 17, 2009 – For a limited time only, concert fans can buy The Live Nation Club Passport for $49.99, All-In and No Fees, and see every show at Live Nation clubs in their city for the rest of the year, subject to availability. If you’re a Live Nation Club Passport holder, and the show’s not sold-out, you’re in! The Live Nation Club Passport is available only at http://www.livenation.com.
Here’s how it works. Beginning today concert fans go to LiveNation.com and purchase a Club Passport. A list of participating shows will be immediately available. Every Monday thereafter, Passport holders log on to LiveNation.com/Passport or follow LiveNation on Facebook or Twitter to see the list of participating club shows in their city and to reserve their ticket. From here, Club Passport holders just bring their Live Nation Club Passport number and photo I.D. to the club’s box office and get right in, no extra charges, no hassles.
“This summer we helped concert fans save more than $14 million on nearly 800,000 tickets to shows in our amphitheaters through our weekly ‘No Service Fee’ offers,” said Michael Rapino, President and Chief Executive Officer of Live Nation. “Since then, I’ve heard from fans and artists alike saying they’d like us to make it just as easy and affordable to discover new artists in our clubs. With The Live Nation Club Passport we’re doing just that, helping fans discover up-and-coming artists, and helping those bands build new audiences.”
