Concerts have returned!

To commemorate the return of live music, the entertainment business Live Nation announced Thursday that it would offer customers $20 “all-in” tickets to nearly 1,000 forthcoming shows. “All in” denotes that the price includes all applicable taxes and levies.

The discounted “Return to Live” performances will take place in several of Live Nation’s 40 outdoor amphitheaters located throughout the United States.

Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Brothers Osborne, Brett Eldredge, Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Lady A, Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, and the Zac Brown Band are among the country singers taking part in the promotion.

“We couldn’t be more excited to get back out on the road,” said Zac Brown in a press release. “It’s been a long, difficult year for everyone and we’re fired up to be reuniting with our crew, sharing new music with our fans, and celebrating a brand new world.”

Along with the Jonas Brothers, Judas Priest, KISS, KORN, Lil Baby, Maroon 5, Pitbull, Slipknot, Trippe Redd, and Rise Against are also featured in the promotion.

“We can’t wait to get back on the road and in front of our fans, it means so much to be able to bring live music back to the people that support us the most,” the Jonas Brothers stated in the Live Nation statement.

The $20 tickets will be available for a limited period on the Live Nation website beginning July 28 at noon EDT / 9 a.m. PDT. T-Mobile and Sprint customers will have early access to the tickets next Tuesday, followed by the general public on July 28.

While fans may be anxious to return to live music, they will encounter a patchwork of COVID-19 regulations, depending on the locale, venue, and even the artist’s desire.

These concertgoer requirements include segregated seating for vaccinated and unvaccinated spectators, mandatory mask-wearing, and social distancing at food and merchandise lines. The rest of the shows are business as usual.
