One day only: Buy one, get one free tickets at Ford Amphitheatre




Why is Coldplay's Chris Martin celebrating? Maybe he just heard about the latest Wednesday deal for concerts at the Ford Amphitheatre.

All summer, Live Nation has been offering deep once-a-week discounts on tickets to concerts at the FordAmp. Here comes another one: This Wednesday, lawn tickets on select shows are buy one, get one free. That means half-price admission to shows like Coldplay, Kenny Chesney, Dave Matthews Band, Brad Paisley, Blink-182 and more.

UPDATE: As a commenter points out, this deal appears to be good for only a handful of FordAmp shows, not every single one. The Mayhem Festival (Marilyn Manson and Slayer), Def Leppard/Poison/Cheap Trick, Crue Fest and REO Speedwagon/Styx are among those covered. This was not noted in Live Nation's original announcement. (Click here for details.)

The only catch: You have to buy your tickets through The offer is only good this Wednesday, July 22, so make hay while the sun shines, ya cheapskates.

In a related story, Soundcheck's sister bloggettes, the Deal Divas, are giving away free, yes FREE tickets to this Saturday's Rascal Flatts show at the Ford Amphitheatre. Not only that, you'll get passes to meet the band before the show.

All you have to do is submit a photo of your most embarrassing, most outlandish concert attire from years gone by. If you're a fan of industrial metal or ska, your odds of winning just went up significantly. (Although if you're a fan of industrial metal or ska, we don't know why you'd be interested in winning this contest in the first place.)
