Amy Lee & Lindsey Stirling jump start ‘NCW’ in NYC…

Live Nation’s National Concert Week promotion is here, having kicked off today (4/30) and scheduled to run through May 8th. The week-long event celebrates the launch of the summer concert season with $20 all-in tickets to a bunch of upcoming shows and tours.

The deal covers a ton of metal and rocks gigs going down at Tri-state area venues like Jones Beach Theater, PNC Bank Arts Center, Madison Square Garden, Barclays Center, Prudential Center, Gramercy Theatre, Irving Plaza and more. You can pickup cheap tickets to catch Stone Temple Pilots, The Smashing Pumpkins, Paramore, Stryper, Counting Crows, Bloodbath and others.

For a full list of shows, go HERE.

To commemorate the start of National Concert Week, Live Nation’s new NYC headquarters in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan hosted a monumental press gathering earlier today, allowing media outlets to intimately chat with artists taking part in the promotional event. We caught some great faces on the red carpet, including members of Coheed and Cambria, Pentatonix, Foreigner, Whitesnake, Taking Back Sunday, 311, The Offspring, Soul Asylum and more.
