Concerts

Live Nation Canada’s annual Concert Week starts today. Tons of tickets are available for $25 all-in. Here’s the list.

Concert tickets have become hella expensive. At the same time, there are so many acts on the road that the biggest reason people don’t go to see them is because they weren’t aware that they were on tour in the first place. And finally, promoters need to fill as many seats as possible–especially those in amphitheatres–during those 3-4 summer months.

Live Nation, the world’s biggest promoter (they have a LOT of acts on the road this summer) as well as a major owner/operator of amphitheatres, has broke back Concert Week for 2023. Starting today (May 10) and continuing to May 16, you can see a wide variety of shows this summer for $25 (including fees and taxes).
