Summer’s about seeing the bands you know teamed up with the other bands you know, singing all the hits in an outdoor venue where the temps hit 95 and the cost of a Bud Light hits $14.  

That’s your shed tour. And in its honor, Ticketmaster is throwing a “Summer of Live” promotion, where you can save money by buying four packs to select shed-worthy shows. Those promotions are labeled as Me+3 or 4-Pack on the purchase pages. Discounts will be applied at checkout.

What to attend? Let us be your guide (we’ll be using New York as the event base, but the promotion is nationwide). You can find a pdf of all available 4-Pack shows here.

For severely underrated alt-rock featuring bands with deep catalogs: Third Eye Blind / Jimmy Eat World

For an unusual pairing that somehow makes sense: blink-182 / Lil Wayne

For aging hipsters: Beck / Cage the Elephant

For mainstream country: Brad Paisley

For singalongs and possible on-stage brawls: The Smashing Pumpkins / Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

You can find more shed tours — though not all of them will have the Ticketmaster promotion available — here.
