American Promoters Slash Concert Ticket Prices

Fans of groups including THE CURE, KORN and OZZY OSBOURNE are cashing in on a lacklustre summer (04) for touring acts in America following plans to slash ticket prices to as little as $10 (GBP5.50).

In a desperate bid to sell out venues on the biggest tours in the US, promoters have started selling seats at bargain prices, according to rock magazine ROLLING STONE.

And, in the case of veteran rockers VAN HALEN's shows, beer and food vouchers are being handed out with tickets in a bid to encourage punters to take seats.

The latest news comes after the cancellation of huge summer tours by CHRISTINA AGUILERA, BRITNEY SPEARS and touring festival LOLLAPALOOZA, and the news that NORAH JONES has been forced to downsize her arena shows to smaller venues due to slow-selling tickets.

Even Osbourne's OZZFEST and ERIC CLAPTON are suffering as fans stay away from live shows.

The only shows which are selling out this summer are PRINCE's greatest hits concerts, the low-priced WARPED TOUR and DAVE MATTHEWS BAND gigs.
