It's hard to say if this is a gesture of corporate goodwill, or a sign that the summer touring scene is so saturated that these shows have suffered from lackluster sales. Whatever the reason, you the consumer can be the winner by getting discounted tickets to the following shows.
The sale runs from July 1-July 5, and some of these are really actually shows you'd want to see. It's not fourth-rate dinosaur acts, it's Neil Young, Alice Cooper, Smashing Pumpkins, Kelly Clarkson, and Run DMC. Sweet.
