Many venues and distributors are offering deals on concert tickets to make it more affordable for music lovers to the see their favorite performers.

The House of Blues is offering a buy one get one free deal and Live Nation recently announced it has reduced ticket prices for hundreds of shows.

Musician Steve Boone, from the band the Lovin’ Spoonful, says getting people in the seats is more important that having empty seats.

He’s noticing the difference. “In the last year or so, the number of bookings have gone down and as recently as a couple months ago, the ticket prices are being adjusted accordingly.”

Ticket prices have a trickle down effect. Boone says they affect the price the band plays for and how much the promoter makes.
