Live Nation is offering $25 tickets to some pretty major L.A. concerts

There are more than a half-dozen music festivals near L.A. going down this May, not to mention countless other concerts at clubs and amphitheaters. Secure seats for even just a couple of those and you’re looking at some budget-breaking purchases—especially once you add in fees.

So thankfully, one of the main sources of those expenses has opted to give us a temporary reprieve. Live Nation will once again offer “$25 all-in tickets” to some 3,800 concerts around the country when purchased during its annual Concert Week. And unlike most tickets from major platforms (like, ahem, Live Nation) these limited-time $25 tickets won’t have any extra fees on top of them (that price tag is technically before tax, but California doesn’t tax concert tickets).

The $25 all-in tickets go on sale Wednesday, May 10 at 7am and are available through May 16, while supplies last. If you happen to be a Verizon subscriber or Rakuten member, you can nab them a day early, on Tuesday, May 9 at 7am. In addition, if you have a Hilton Honors account, you can connect your hotel chain loyalty account to Ticketmaster if you want to pay with points.

We don’t know yet exactly which shows will be eligible for the deal in Southern California, but we do know that not all of the 300-plus participating artists will have valid shows in L.A. (for example, Janet Jackson and Boy George are both on the national list, but their local concerts are LA Phil-produced shows sold via the Hollywood Bowl, not Live Nation). That said, some of the listed artists that could end up having Concert Week-eligible shows in L.A. include the All-American Rejects and New Found Glory, Babymetal and Dethklok, Beck and Phoenix, Elvis Costello & the Imposters, Fall Out Boy, Jimmy Eat World and Manchester Orchestra, the Offspring, P!NK, Ray LaMontagne, Shania Twain and Weezer.
