LOS ANGELES (AP) — Concert promoter Live Nation Inc. is extending its discount Wednesdays program to include general admission tickets at its clubs this week, as a successful summer of concerts at its larger amphitheaters winds down.

Live Nation's Global Music CEO Jason Garner says the recession is making it easier to agree with many artists to cut prices and help draw more fans into venues.

More than 350 artists — including Jewel, Boyz II Men, and All American Rejects — agreed to offer 2-for-1 prices on tickets sold this Wednesday for certain shows through the end of the year on LiveNation.com.
