Free Summer Concert Tickets... Right Now!

A swarm of Summer Santas are wandering around Manhattan right now and handing out vouchers for FREE concert tickets as part of Live Nation’s “No Service Fee Wednesday” promotion (yes, we know it's Tuesday today...). You can also have a photo taken sitting on Santa’s lap as he lounges in a lawn chair surrounded by fluffy white faux summer snow and cooks up free hot dogs – the ultimate summer snack.

Each of the 15 Santas will be carrying a sack of Live Nation concert ticket vouchers to hand out to lucky boys and girls, whether they’ve been naughty or nice. The vouchers are redeemable for concerts of their choice at participating Live Nation venues throughout the country.

Find them here:

Union Square – 12:30PM
Wall Street – 12:30PM
Times Square – 1:00PM
Grand Central/Pershing Square – 1:15PM
Bryant Park – 1:30PM
Washington Square Park – 2:00PM

I was in Times Sq. from 1 - 1:30 looking for Santas... NO Santas in sight. FAIL.

I tried the Union Square spot and found nothing. I like what you do on NYC daily deals, but sometimes the sources should be double checked.

Hey all. My apologies no Santas were spotted in Times Square or Union Square. This deal came directly from Live Nation's PR Agency. I'm looking into what happened, but here is the press release:

LIVE NATION SUMMER SANTAS CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS IN JULY

Live Nation’s ‘No Service Fee Wednesday’ continues with some much needed cheer -- FREE concert tickets, FREE hot dogs and a summer snow storm!

A swarm of Summer Santas will gather at The Fillmore New York Irving Plaza ( 17 Irving Place) at 11:00am on Tuesday, July 14th to celebrate Christmas in July by handing out FREE concert tickets as part of Live Nation’s “No Service Fee Wednesday” promotion. Passers-by can also have a photo taken sitting on Santa’s lap as he lounges in a lawn chair surrounded by fluffy white faux summer snow and cooks up free hot dogs – the ultimate summer snack.

The 15 Santas will meet in a flurry in front of the Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza before hitting the streets of NYC to give the gift of free music. Each Santa will be carrying a sack of Live Nation concert ticket vouchers to hand out to lucky boys and girls, whether they’ve been naughty or nice. The vouchers are redeemable for concerts of their choice at participating Live Nation venues throughout the country.

From Live Nation's PR Agency:

I'm sorry to hear that your readers were upset, but I do know that they were at each location at the given times because some of my colleagues (including bosses) were with the santas at each site.

I don't believe they were in a clump so it may have been difficult to find one in those areas, but they were def there, and in total they distributed 1000 vouchers.
