So you're a big Foo Fighters/Dave Grohl fan, but you don't actually own a lot of the albums, eh?
PopMarket can help you out with that problem. They're selling all of the Foos albums, plus a video collection for $54.99 today only.
Today's Amazon MP3 deal is a can't miss affair for lovers of the blues. B.B. King's new live album, Live at the Royal Albert Hall 2011 makes its release debut and for today only, it's $3.99 at Amazon MP3.
B.B. is joined by Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, Slash and Ronnie Wood. The release is a good primer for anyone who might be planning to catch B.B. this fall when he pairs up with Tedeschi-Trucks Band for a string of dates. At 86 years old, we're lucky to have B.B. still taking the stage and I'm glad that he's still playing music.
BTW, speaking of Amazon, they're putting some extra eyeballs on their daily deal website today by offering $10 Amazon gift certificates for $5 (limit one per household).
Live Nation is pulling out all the stops for the last 10 days of No Service Fees June by offering fans a $10 ticket deal for a new show each day for the next 10 days. For Cleveland folks, if you're reading this right now (Monday evening), you can grab yourself a pair of lawn tickets to see Styx, Foreigner and Kansas on Saturday night at Blossom.
Tuesday's offer is a fist full of metal featuring The Scorpions (farewell tour, last chance to see these dudes!), Great White (okay, not really metal) and '80s metalers Shok Paris (horns up!).
The remainder of the special $10 discounted shows range from Lilith Fair (definitely worth 10 bucks to see Sarah McLachlan!) to Creed. Question: Will they be paying us $10 bucks to go see Creed? No?

With the rising cost of concert tickets, it's always refreshing to get word of a good deal that will actually put some dollars back into your wallet as a music fan. And believe it or not, this has nothing to do with stealing music off of the internet!
I'm talking about Live Nation's recent announcement that they're waiving the service fees on concert ticket purchases for the entire month of June.
This means that you've now got money for two more beers at that Tom Petty concert you're planning on attending. It means that you can buy me two tickets to see Jackson Browne, and still have money left over to buy me that other thing that you've been thinking about. I appreciate it. Or perhaps you're planning to go see the Backstreet Boys - guess what? You now have money to purchase materials to make your own costume, so that you can attend the show dressed as your favorite Backstreet Boy!
Isn't summer going to be awesome?

P.S. - I was serious about those Jackson Browne tickets. Can we talk?
Thanks to Cool Cleveland for reminding me of this.....
Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson are back on the road this year for another summer of shows at minor league ballparks across the United States. They're bringing John Mellencamp along for the ride this summer and reports from the early tour dates say that all three gentleman are turning in a fine setlist each night. For those of you that are headed out to one of the upcoming shows, Dylan has a little something for you and your family. Kids 14 and under get a free admission to this year's show, as long as they're accompanied by an adult - one complimentary youth admission for each adult ticket holder....so make it a night out for the whole family!
Snag your tickets here.
Thanks to a friend, it looks like I'll be in attendance to check this one out when the tour hits Eastlake on Saturday night - I've never seen Mellencamp play an actual set (just a few songs here and there,) so I'm pretty stoked!
It's only the second time in 24 years that all three performers have shared the stage together, so chances like this one don't come around very often!
And like everyone else, Bob is on Twitter, which we're guessing will make it easier for you to understand what Bob is saying, for the first time ever.
