Awesome deal at House of Blues

Anyone who even semi-regularly reads this blog knows that I'm a sucker for local industry. Whether we are talking grocery stores, restaurants, or rock clubs - I like to spend my money on and at Cleveland institutions.

Recently, though, the folks at House of Blues have been doing a pretty good job winning my affection with the various recession-friendly plans they've developed for music fans in these tough times. Yeah, they are still a business and the deals are designed to get folks in the door, not for charity, but still ... at least they are giving hook-ups to the NEO community, right?

The last one I was aware of was no service fee days where you could buy your ticket for the ticket price only, with the other crap fees that sometimes wind up being almost as much as the entertainment cost itself.

This time, they've gone a step farther and have created a deal I just might take them up on myself. They call it the Live Nation Club Passport and, basically, for $50 you get free tickets to any and all shows for the rest of the year. (Note: This doesn't mean one show, this means you can go to as many shows as you want for the remainder of 2009.) Pretty sweet, huh?

No fees, but the shows must still have tickets available (i.e., buying the passport won't get you in if there aren't tickets.)

Here’s how it works. Beginning today concert fans go to and purchase a Club Passport. A list of participating shows will be immediately available. Every Monday thereafter, Passport holders log on to or follow Live Nation on Facebook or Twitter to see the list of participating club shows in their city and to reserve their ticket. From here, Club Passport holders just bring their Live Nation Club Passport number and photo I.D. to the House of Blues box office and get right in, no extra charges, no hassles.

The Live Nation Club Passport is valid for the following participating shows at the House of Blues, and more shows will be added as the weeks tick off the calendar.
