Live Nation expands "bargain" tickets

In its continuing -- and increasingly desperate-looking -- attempt to fill seats at concerts that are hurting this summer, the local office of giant national concert promoters Live Nation are expanding their "no service fees" Wednesdays and half-price promotions to include shows at theaters and clubs, too, including the local House of Blues.

The promotion starts at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday (Aug. 5) and runs for 24 hours at www.livenation.com, providing a 50% discount off the total price and fees of tickets in multiples of two. The half-price shows include Brad Paisley on Aug. 7, Creed on Aug. 30 and Toby Keith on Sept. 19 at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre; Heaven & Hell on Aug. 19 at Charter One Pavilion and no service fees at all House of Blues shows.

There also is this nifty little promotion that a reader made me aware of (because nothing says "rock 'n' roll" like a foot-long sandwich).

Alas, as the Live Nation fine print notes, its half-price promotion is "not available in combination with other offers"
