Live Nation reports that they will eliminate service fees for reserved and lawn seats purchased in June after a poll demonstrated that about 60% of the customers confessed that dropped fees were the deciding factor in whether or not to purchase tickets.
The Jonas Brothers are also doing their part in a tough economy. The Brothers will offer fee-free tickets to their tour and promote with a fan club show Wednesday in Washington.
Nick had this to say about the elimination of the extra fees: “With the tough economy, my brothers and I wanted to do something. We have a close relationship with our fans, and this is one way to help them out.”
“Growing up our family financial situation wasn’t that great, and we’d have to refrain from going to concerts.” Kevin Jonas Sr., added: “I’ll speak as a dad. It can be difficult to buy one ticket, much less three or four. When you eliminate any fees, it makes it much more possible.”
