    In an attempt to drum up sales for its summer concert season, Live Nation announced today that it will eliminate service fees on tickets sold this month for show at its amphitheaters, including Nikon at Jones Beach Theater.
    “We know that’s tough in this economy, so it’s our job to find a way to make concerts more affordable,” said Michael Rapino, Live Nation’s president and CEO, adding that “a fan in every seat is our mission this summer.”
    The offer only applies to tickets bought at through June 30, including Rihanna’s “Last Girl on Earth” show on Aug. 15, which goes on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. The offer also includes shows at The Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza and The Gramercy Theatre.
