Do you remember the days when concert tickets were all sold in person at the box offices? My goodness if you wanted a ticket to certain shows, you better be in line at least the night before. Of course, not all concerts were that popular, but the ones that everyone wanted to go to were for sure.
Nowadays, of course most tickets are sold online. You can still score free concert tickets at random if you're lucky enough to win the contest on the radio. Of course, there are also social media contests and the likes that you can search for online. When trying to get the best ticket prices, it's always a good idea to buy them well in advance. If you wait until the last moment you won't get any disounts if available.
Those pre-sale perks can be very advantageous, and there are other ways to score sweet ticket deals as well. Let me tell you, they definitely don't all involve the tips that Ticketmaster would tell you. One of the best ways to find out what is going on is to do a simple search for ticket sales and promotions regarding the event you want to attend. There are also apps that might benefit you as well.
