Concert production powerhouse Live Nation said they will eliminate service fees Wednesday for 1,500 shows spread over more than 80 North American theaters and clubs, including popular locations such as House of Blues and Fillmore venues.

Live Nation, which sold more than 50 million concert tickets last year, is trying to build the music industry’s first artist-to-fan concert platform. The company said they have saved concert goers nearly $10 million this summer.
