Going To Concerts Is My Hobby, But...

I'm a huge music fan and that includes going to concerts. If it was up to me, I would go to at least a couple of shows every week. Unfortunately, "adulting" gets in my way. I've got to get up for work in the morning. Also, paying bills and buying food seem to be more of a priority.

Plus, concert tickets have gotten really expensive. I have to pick and choose which shows I go to and the ones I skip. To check out your favorite band in some decent seats, there's a good chance you're going to fork out at least $100. The entertainment budget doesn't spread too far with those kinds of prices.


My Wallet Empties Quickly During Summer Concert Season 

When you're from the Midwest, you really look forward to summer and spending as much time as possible outside. That includes going to shows. In fact, outdoor concerts are my absolute favorite. There goes my paycheck. I should probably have direct deposit to my Ticketmaster account.


Huge Summer Concert Ticket Sale

What if I told you there's a chance to get concert tickets for just $25 for some of your favorite artists coming through Illinois and Wisconsin this summer? How cool would that be? Well, there's only one catch. You have to buy them this week.

This includes most of the big tours hitting the road this summer. There's a pretty darn good chance, that the shows you want to check out are included.
