$20 All-in Concert Tickets


This is National Concert Week in the USA and Live Nation and Ticket Master are offering concert tickets for $20 all-in. Which means no extra fees, just $20.

This is the perfect time to buy cheap tickets.

Sometimes it's a ticket for the lawn section.

If you act quick maybe you can grab reserved seats also.

www.livenation.com


The fees for some tickets are outrageous. I just looked at some Iron Maiden tickets:
$35.25 for each ticket
$21.15 for the service fee
+$4.25 for the facility charge
---------
$60.65 subtotal for each ticket

* 2
--------
$121.30 for 2 tickets
+ $6.25 order processing fee
-----------
$127.55 total for 2 tickets = the normal price, instead you can go to 3 shows for the same price
We've seen Iron Maiden at least a couple of times already so we probably won't catch this show


But for the other concerts we bought, $40 is damn cheap for a staycation

And I always thought this would be
the land of milk and honey
Oh but I came to find out that it's
all hate and money
And there's a canopy of greed holding me down.

Any luck scoring tickets?


We got like 5 concerts for $200. Had to pay a $3.50 fee to have some tickets mailed to us. Printed most of the other tickets.


Looks like it's going to be another Rock N Roll summer

I live in the UK, I'm not aware that this has ever been a thing here. I'm bummed because IAMX didn't come to the UK on their last tour (I've seen them 3 times already though, but I need endorphins where I can get them plus they were doing mental health gatherings on their last tour :<) here is a list of bands I've seen live (hyphenated ones were support acts at a concert) I may end up missing one..

Green Day
- Hard-Fi
- Taking Back Sunday
- Jimmy Eat World

The Blanks (just because they played at my uni, not very into their music though Scrubs was a good show.)

Evanescence
-The Pretty Reckless

ONE OK ROCK

Girugamesh

Mindless Self Indulgence
- The Red Paintings (this was the best band I discovered through a concert and their set was really weird too.)
- The Dead Betas

IAMX (x3)

Steven Wilson (x4)

The Birthday Massacre
- The Dead Betas
- Among The Echoes (I think honestly don't remember this band really, and they may have been replaced at the show or something but they were like goth rock or something and opening for TBM.)

Deftones
-AFI

A Perfect Circle

The Dresden Dolls

so 17? I would go to many more, but I shouldn't really go to any at all. I feel guilty for doing fun stuff when I can't make myself do other stuff and I still tend to get really anxious especially in the last few years but it helps a small amount. And music is very important to me in a spiritual/drug sense.

That's a pretty good list. I've seen Green Day, Evanescence x2, Deftones and probably a couple more from that list.


I find that having tickets for a concert that is months away gives me something to look forward to when I get depressed (which is like every other day).



I read a great book called "Guilt, Shame and Anxiety - Understanding and Overcoming Negative Emotions" by Dr. Peter Breggin. He writes that these legacy emotions were needed during our evolution but we really don't need them anymore and can replace them with a more constructive emotion, something like Love

I feel like it's pretty normal for someone like me to feel guilt/shame when doing stuff I enjoy, because I'm doing far less productive stuff than the average person (at my point of existence the total obliteration of shame/guilt is probably more a sign of sociopathy and I have more than enough sociopathic traits haha..) Some people though work really hard and feel guilty for even taking short breaks and that seems unfair on them.

Got to see Slayer (again) last night for $20. Great show. I was a bit tired towards the end because Lamb of God opened for them.

Got to see Amon Amarth last night for $20. Great show. I was a bit tired towards the end because Cannibal Corpse opened for them.





Got to see Cannibal Corpse last night for $20. Great show. I was a bit tired towards the end because West Palm Beach is bit of a drive from Miami




Great shows, lots of headbangers, lots of pot smoking, no cops to be seen, moshing all night long, plus my Scorpions t-shirt was a hit

Last night we got our seats upgraded for free because the show wasn't sold out, We ended up in really expensive seats and we only paid $40. Unfortunately our favorite parking space downtown is no longer there but there was a $10 parking garage nearby.

Great show, lots of people in the general admission / standing room only / floor area.

The concert was the opposite of a sausage fest, jugs fest perhaps

We got to see Jeff Lynne's Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) last night. Great show! Plus we got free seat upgrades again.

Electric Light Orchestra Lyrics



"Yours Truly, 2095"

2095, 2095, 2095, 2095
I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly...

I sent a message to another time
But as the days unwind, this I just can't believe
I sent a note across another plane
Maybe it's all a game, but this I just can't conceive.

Can you hear me?

I drive the very latest hovercar
I don't know where you are
But I miss you so much till then
I met someone who looks a lot like you
She does the things you do
But she is an IBM.

2095, 2095, 2095, 2095
I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly...

She's only programmed to be very nice
But she's as cold as ice
Whenever I get too near
She tells me that she likes me very much
But when I try to touch
She makes it all too clear.

She is the latest in technology
Almost mythology
But she has a heart stone
She has an I.Q. of 1001
She has a jumpsuit on
And she's also a telephone.

2095, 2095, 2095, 2095
I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly...

[CHORUS:]
Is that what you want? (Is it what you want?)
Is it what you really want? (Is it what you really want?)
Is that what you want? (Is it what you want?)
Is it what you really want?

I realize that it must seem so strange
That time has rearranged
But time has the final word
She knows I think of you, she reads my mind
She tries to be unkind
She knows nothing of our world

Although her memory banks overflow
No one would ever know
For all she says: "Is that what you want?"
Maybe one day I'll feel her cold embrace
And kiss her interface
'Til then, I'll leave her alone.

I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly...

[REPEAT CHORUS]

"Is that what you want?"

And I always thought this would be
the land of milk and honey
Oh but I came to find out that it's
all hate and money
And there's a canopy of greed holding me down.

Dhani Harrison opened for ELO


Iron Maiden concert was great also


Last night we watched Our Lady Peace, Bush and Live for $20 (another $10 for lawn chairs), great concerts. Bayfront Amphitheater in downtown Miami surrounded by skyscrapers and a full moon. Very hot, but we were able to bring in water bottles including a squirt bottle I used to dowse myself into coolness

Last night Jason Bonham and his band played Zeppelin the way it should be played, Loud!

It took us 2.5 hours in rush hour traffic jams to get from Miami to West Palm Beach but it was worth it. No sooner than us setting down our lawn chairs, "Immigrant Song" allowed us to scream at the top of our lungs and exorcise the frustration of driving in Florida.

Jason and his buddies opened for Peter Frampton, who played better than ever, even though he has medical concerns. Hopefully we healed him some, because he healed us a lot.

Last time I saw Peter was 38 years ago when I was 17 (you do the math).

Man what a great concert. The storms in the distance gave us a light show and the half moon was partying with us too It's nice to get stoned and drunk with 8,500 of your closest friends every now and then.

You just can't beat $20 for an awesome staycation.

Btw bringing an extra dry t-shirt for after the show was brilliant. I douse myself with cold water all night long to cool off, but when I'm back in the air conditioned car it's nice to be dry.


Music means a lot to me. Getting up and dancing my arse off all night long is the best exercise in the world.


So many Rock legends are passing away. We watched Soundgarden a few months before before Chris Cornell died. Same for Linkin Park and Chester Bennington, Joe Cocker, Gregg Allman, Tom Petty, Wayne Static, Clarence Clemons, Richard Wright, Ricky Wilson, John Entwhistle... the list goes on and on.




And I always thought this would be

all hate and money

Last month we got to see The Who again for $20 each. We read on the website that parking was included so the people who tried to get us to pay $20 at the gate let us through because we were informed consumers. So if you subtract the parking, we got to see The Who for $10 each. Awesome show as always.


And last night we got to see Cheap Trick and ZZ Top for $20 all-in, reserved seats (in the dance section of course). Super sets!
