Coming Wednesday: Get $10 tickets to the Jonas Brothers, Rihanna, Goo Goo Dolls and Creed



Live Nation knows the first way to a concert fan's heart is through his wallet. This was evident with last summer's No Service Fee Wednesdays, and this year's No Service Fee June.

On Wednesday (7/21), they're returning to the well with a big deal: For a limited time, get $10 tickets, all fees and taxes included, to the following concerts at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre: Rihanna/Ke$ha (July 30), Goo Goo Dolls (Aug. 15), Creed (Sept. 1) and the Jonas Brothers with Demi Lovato (Sept. 8).

Wait a second. The Jonas Brothers?

Indeed. The concert industry's bummer of a summer, which has already resulted in canceled shows by Lilith Fair, Rihanna and the Country Throwdown Tour, among others, extends to the princes of Disney pop-rock. MTV, Rolling Stone and other outlets have reported that the JoBros are facing "poor sales" on this summer tour, which has already seen several canceled and moved dates. Less than a year ago, the Jonas Brothers drew nearly 20,000 fans to the St. Pete Times Forum; now they're being forced to dole out $10 tickets. What happened? (We blame Bieber.)

Live Nation's $10 ticket deal starts at midnight tonight and runs 24 hours, so if you want tickets, you'd better get 'em early. Click here to look for tickets.

And for what it's worth, Wednesday's ticket deal is also good for certain shows in West Palm Beach and Miami, i.e. Maroon 5 and Robert Plant. Get a list after the jump.

The complete list of eligible concerts:

1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre, Tampa: Rihanna/Ke$ha (July 30), Goo Goo Dolls (Aug. 15), Creed (Sept. 1), Jonas Brothers/Demi Lovato (Sept. 8)
