Most of the time, I find out about concerts happening near me late. This is when the good seats are ranging up to a thousand dollars. That is the cost of my meal plan for a whole semester. I would rather spend that amount of money on something that can sustain me for months, not just a night.
You should have an experience worth paying for, and I’m not sure if that is possible when you can’t see the person performing or you bust your pocket buying tickets to attend. Here are two things you can do:
- Plan ahead: Know what concerts are happening when and where. There is no harm in planning ahead and pre-ordering a ticket. What if you’re not able to attend the concert? Your ticket can always be sold. There is always someone who wants to buy a ticket, so do not worry. Here is a schedule of concerts coming up in Tampa.
- Buy tickets from discounted dealers: there are people who sell tickets for a cheaper, or an inflated, price online. Find the right, trustworthy people and buy tickets from them. Check their reviews before doing so. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
Do a lot of artists come to Tampa?
They do. The Weeknd is performing in Tampa on Dec. 17, at the Amalie Arena. You should treat yourself and go, you’ve earned it.
