Ken Pierce Media Thoughts: I’m happy to see the return of this initiative because let’s face it, everyone is having a little bit of an issue with finances today based on how hard the pandemic hit us. The money from work that’s needed for regular day to day living and bills doesn’t always leave us with the fun concert cash needed for tickets and of course merchandise. Making every dollar count is going to be a lot easier for the concert attending fan thanks to this and if you peruse that lengthy rundown of artists up above you will see that there is something for everyone in there. Truth be told I don’t generally participate in this kind of thing since I have only been able to attend the concerts that I am doing some reporting on and thankfully the tickets come along with those kinds of arrangements. I should look into a few artists and attend as one of the teeming masses with friends like I used to do since those were always some fun times. Wrapping this up I wonder what you all out in the readership think about this announcement. Feel free to chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time around. Keep safe out there.
