Want To Celebrate National Concert Day on May 1st? Get A Concert Ticket for 20 Bucks

Seems like there’s a National _______ Day for everything, right? Well here’s one music fans can really get behind. National Concert Day is May 1st, and Live Nation is marking the occasion with a million cheap concert tickets.

For real: over 50 tours and 1000 shows will have discounted tickets available for purchase between May 2 – 9 for $20, so start planning your summer gigs early! (And just so we’re clear, the tickets must be bought during that period, but the shows are all over the summer months.) The Kickoff to Summer’s promotional website shows some of the big names participating: Boston, Depeche Mode, Kings of Leon, Muse, The Offspring, Young the Giant, and many more are included.

But there is a slight complication, though. Most of the included gigs are in the States! If you navigate to the participating shows document hidden in the fine print you can search for Canadian Live Nation shows that are also included in the promotion. Thankfully there’s a decent number of them, but to save you from squinting through the results, below is a full list of the $20 shows hitting major Canadian markets. If we missed your town you can always search the document yourself, but just a heads up – there are no participating concerts listed for Montreal, Ottawa, Hamilton, or major Maritime cities. Maybe this is the perfect opportunity to plan an American road trip?
