$10 ticket to see KISS, they’ll drive you crazy

Live Nation is offering $10 tickets to see KISS in Charlotte Aug. 28 and Raleigh Aug. 29. The tickets are available only for certain sections, but I’ve never had a bad seat at the Verizon Amphitheatre. The offer is good only today (June 30) until 11:59 p.m. They also are offering no-service-fee tickets for a variety of shows.

I’ve signed up for Live Nation’s concert updates, and they constantly offer interesting deals or bargains on tickets.
