We expect a lot from a concert experience. Cheap tickets are not one of them. (Unless, of course, you're supporting local music, because there are undoubtedly good musicians in your city worth the $5 they charge for a bill featuring four artists.)

Nonetheless, Live Nation's National Concert Week is back for its fifth annual celebration, offering a brief respite from ticket fees and high priced arena shows. You can snag $20 tickets -- that's $20 total, including fees -- to hundreds of shows from May 1-7. The promotion is available for concerts across the country. More than 2 million total tickets for more than 2,800 shows are included in the sale. 

Here's how to get tickets

The $20 tickets will be available for one week only. The general on-sale will kick off at noon on May 1 and last until midnight on May 7. There will also be a 24-hour presale through T-Mobile that starts April 30 at 5am. The details on the National Concert Week site are a little thin, but you know when tickets go on sale and you can sign up for a reminder before the sale starts. That reminder will also tip you off on details about the presale.

We're talking about concerts, so there will be limited availability. If you want in, it'll definitely be worth trying to buy tickets as soon as they go on sale.
