Live Nation's No Fee Wednesdays Actually Some Fee Wednesdays, Confuses Both People Buying Blink-182 Tickets

Live Nation, in its bid to seem like something other than a gargantuan corporate entity meant to separate music fans from the maximum amount of theilr money possible, announced the "No Fee Wednesday" promotion, where tickets could be purchased without the riders that usually tack on between ten and fifteen dollars a ticket. Fans were understandably confused, then, purchasing tickets on Wednesday and finding a fat six dollar parking charge attached. Live Nation spokesperson Jon Vlautin said that the fees involved in the promotion were only convenience fees; parking fees were a separate entity and not subject to the discount. The problem was further exacerbated by the upcoming blink-182 tour, which promised twenty dollar lawn seats. Live Nation's solution was to post a twenty dollar ticket, which actually cost thirty-five, and an eight dollar "all in" option that came in much closer to the promised price. There were no differences between the seats listed on the website, and fans were left wondering which was the correct option. Spokesman Vlautin said that any fan who mistakenly purchased the pricier ticket (because some people out there want to give Live Nation a little more cash) should contact customer service.
