Update: Live Nation offering limited $20 tickets to big Tampa Bay concerts — but you'll have to wait to see the complete list

"There will be reserved seats for $20 for some shows while supplies last. Fans will have to wait until the micro site is live [to see which shows are participating]."

If you've ever bemoaned ticket fees for big concerts, then be thrilled because at least one of the perpetrators wants to try and make it right.

UPDATE NO. 2: The list is live, and we spent the morning clicking around to see which concerts were included. Feel free to do the same here, and let us know what ticket you got (or what's already run dry) via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Today Live Nation announced a one week sale where tickets to select concerts will cost just $20. The "All-In" ticket includes all service charges and fees. Yes, that means that one $20 bill will get you into more than 2000 summer shows across the country.

The tickets are available for one week only (April 30-May 8), and more than three dozen Bay area concerts — including Erasure, Maroon 5, Hall & Oates, G-Eazy, Smashing Pumpkins and Steely Dan — are on the list (see the full list below).

UPDATE: In an email, Live Nation added that lawn and reserved seat availability will vary by show and that not all Bay area shows listed below will be participating on a local level. "There will be reserved seats for $20 for some shows while supplies last," a Live Nation rep told CL. "Fans will have to wait until the micro site is live at 8 a.m. [to see which shows are participating]."

There will be reserved seats for $20 for some shows while supplies last. 

Also included on the specials sheet are comedy shows (Kevin Hart), magicians (David Blaine) and ex-vice presidents (Joe Biden).

Not on list, however, are two MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre concerts by Kendrick Lamar (May 22), Dave Matthews Band (July 25).
