Live Nation ticket sale: 43 San Diego concerts for $20 each, all-inclusive

Discounted tickets for 43 San Diego concerts are being offered, for $20 each, as part of Live Nation’s “National Concert Week.”

For the fourth consecutive year, Live Nation — the world’s largest concert and live-events promoter — is offering a $20, all-inclusive, ticket sale that will only be available online.

Forty-three of these concerts are in San Diego — up from 32 last year — including shows by Ozzy Osborne, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Rod Stewart and Kesha.
