Cheap Concert Tickets takes pride in saving their customers money on their concert ticket purchases by keeping their prices low.

Everyone loves to go to summer concerts and there are many ways to get more bang out of your buck when attending concerts during the summer. Listen to the radio or watch the newspaper to see when the onsale is for your favorite artist. On the morning of the onsale (usually on a Friday or Saturday for big events) have your credit card next to your computer and go on Ticketmaster or Live Nation at 9:59 a.m. sharp. Wait until 10:00 a.m. and quickly type in all your pertinent information. If you are lucky and get the seats you want - great job. However, this isn't always the case for A List Performers like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift. This is when you can turn to the secondary market to obtain the desired concert tickets.
Most people think that tickets on the secondary market are generally expensive. This isn't always the case especially if concertgoers do their homework. Patience is golden when buying tickets for big time artists like Neil Diamond and Coldplay. These tickets usually have high prices as soon as they come on the resale market, but prices often drop drastically as the event approaches. An example is tickets for Brad Paisley in Cincinnati recently sold for under $10. They were single tickets put on the secondary market by ticket holders that couldn't attend the concert. These tickets for Brad Paisley were quickly snatched by a savvy shopper who saved quite a bit of money on their purchase.
There are great deals out there from the fan clubs of popular bands. Make sure to join these fan clubs to get all the news about upcoming concerts and special fan club presales. Usually membership is free and it can reap many benefits for concertgoers. Sometimes fan clubs even offer special merchandise for next to nothing or for free. Just go online and search for your favorite artists fan clubs and join them today!
If the band or artist is doing a 3 night stint in your city, stay away from buying tickets for the first night because generally these are quite a bit more expensive than the other nights. Often at the last minute prices for the third night will drop significantly as the concert date nears. This is a great way to snag tickets for someone like Elton John at a very low price. Check concert ticket websites daily as your desired event nears to watch prices.
For General Admission venues like the Hard Rock and the House of Blues, purchase general admission tickets and take off of work early to be in line for the front row seats. These venues often host some big names like James Taylor, Kid Rock, Nora Jones and more great artists. Small venues give more bang for the buck because seats are generally quite cheap and the atmosphere is very intimate.
Shop around on the internet and visit many ticket websites and compare service charges and shipping. Try to choose the E-Mail option because as a rule it is half the cost of shipping. Just make sure if you are ordering tickets at the last minute that there is a printer nearby to print the tickets. A customer recently hit the jackpot when they found tickets for Neil Diamond at only twenty bucks apiece when a broker unloaded their unsold inventory on the day of the concert.
These deals can be found by being diligent and patient and by checking prices often.
