$20 tickets through May 8th, plus get involved in powerful causes
It’s officially Live Nation’s National Concert Week! April 30th through May 8th, Live Nation is offering fans 1.5 million tickets for just $20. This spans 2,000+ shows across Live Nation’s roster of summer tours including Comedy, Country, Hip-Hop, Latin, Metal, Rock, Pop, and more.
While over 100 artists are participating in National Concert week, we have highlighted five who have established or are aligned to remarkable foundations. In some cases, a portion of each concert ticket a given artists sells goes towards their respective foundation. Often at each show, you can learn about the causes that are near and dear to such artists. Simple efforts such as signing up for a mailing list, making a small donation, or simply meeting the staff/volunteers at the venue can go a long way. Every effort counts, and we applaud each artist who goes out of their way to use their platform and voice to help make a difference in the world.

Counting Crows: GREYBIRD FOUNDATION
Counting Crows started the GreyBird Foundation because. “We believe America is a dream in which the thoughts and needs of each and every person matter. Unfortunately, people feel small as the world expands and they forget that they ARE America.”
GreyBird finds the people down the street from you who are trying to do their part to help and they try and help THEM. It’s a concept of getting involved with the idea of being involved people. After all, it’s your town, your country, your world, and no one will ever make as much of a difference as you can just by waking up and being a part of it.
