Comments Off on Save on Globalquerque Tickets 2014

September still feels like a long way away, but you’ll save big if you plan ahead and buy your Globalquerque tickets in advance of the show.

Discounted advance tickets are already on sale for ¡Globalquerque! – Albuquerque’s annual celebration of world music and culture. The Globalquerque 2014 event  takes place on September 19-20 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, with performers including the fantastic Guatemala’s Gaby Moreno. Other acts in the line-up include Cuba’s Afro-Cuban All Stars, Calypso Rose with Kobo Town from Trinidad & Tobago, China’s Liu Fang, and America’s own Los Texmaniacs.

You’ll save yourself money if you plan ahead and buy advance Globalquerque tickets rather than waiting to buy on the door. For example, an advance adult 2-day pass costs $59 — a savings of $10 off the day of show price! An adult one day tickets saves $5  in advance, and advance children’s tickets save $2 for one day and $5 for the 2-day pass.

You can buy the advance Globalquerque tickets online, but expect to pay a service charge of $3.50 per ticket. The much cheaper option is to buy tickets at the National Hispanic Cultural Center box office (1701 4th Street SW) with no service charge. Or call the NHCC Box Office on (505) 724-4771 and you’ll also avoid paying ticketing fees.

If you can’t afford to buy Globalquerque tickets at all, or just plain don’t want to pay up for the festival, there will be a free Global Fiesta day on September 20 with family-friendly entertainment and activities.  It’s not really the same as seeing all those fabulous concerts, but it’s still a great day of music and dance.

I’ll keep you posted on the free Global Fiesta day nearer the time, so if you’re not a subscriber remember to Subscribe FREE to Albuquerque on the Cheap by RSS or email. You’ll receive updates in a handy email digest, listing all the new deal posts from the past 24 hours. No new deals that day… no email.

Get discount tickets today for Gigantour  in Albuquerque featuring Megadeth and Motörhead on February 26, 2012. There’s only a limited quantity of deal tickets available, so don’t thrash around if you’re interested.

Gigantour comes to Tingley Coliseum in Albuquerque on Sunday February 26, 2012, with heavy metal bands Megadeth, Motörhead, Volbeat, and Lacuna Coil.

If you act fast, you can get up to 50% off tickets for Gigantour, at $27 for general admission seating in the stands, worth up to $54 including ticketing fees.

Each person can buy up to 4 tickets in today’s deal via GrouponLive, then redeem the certificates on the show date at the box office. On purchase, you need to give a name for whoever will redeem the tickets at the show, and that person must show valid ID at the box office. (So nobody else can steal your seats – LOL!) So if you’re buying 4 tickets to give as a gift to your metal-head cousins but you’re not going yourself, make sure you put a cousin’s name when you fill in the box for who will redeem the tickets at the box office. It’s all very clear on the purchase form.

Pat Benatar Concert: Buy in Advance, Save $5

August 5, 2010 by

Comments Off on Pat Benatar Concert: Buy in Advance, Save $5

$25 to hear Pat Benatar in concert on August 10? A pretty good deal we think.

Iconic Pat Benatar plays at the Rio Grande Zoo on Tuesday August 10 at 7:30 pm.  Just the thought of it gets me in the mood for a 1980s strut. Love is a Battlefield or Shadows of the Night, anyone? She’s performing with a band led by guitarist Neil Giraldo and concert proceeds benefit the New Mexico BioPark Society.

If you wait to buy Pat Benatar Concert tickets at the gate on the day they cost $30. That’s already a pretty good deal for an artist of her stature.

BUT: Buy in advance and you’ll save $5 – tickets are available either in person from ABQ BioPark cashiers or online for $25.

And note that if you’re bringing kids, children under age 3 have free admission.

Order tickets online from the link at the City of Albuquerque Rio Grande Zoo site – they email them to you to print out yourself. (Easy peasy – no shipping costs and no need to drive down to the BioPark to purchase!)

  • When: Tuesday August 10, 2010
  • Time: Gates open at 6 pm for the concert at 7:30 pm
  • Price: $25 in advance, $30 at the gate. Kids under 3 go free.
  • Where: Rio Grande Zoo

It’s the same deal for the country artist Blake Shelton concert on August 27 – tickets are $30 on the day, $25 in advance.

Visitors to Albuquerque – see the map for the Rio Grande Zoo, located at 903 10th St. SW

Comments Off on No Service Fees @ LiveNation 6/3/09 ONLY

Thanks, Jessica, for the great tip!

Tie a string around your finger. Mark your calendar. Set your Blackberry alarm. Do whatever you need to do to remember that LiveNation is waiving service fees for all amphitheater concerts on June 3, 2009!

This looks to be the first in a series of fee-free Wednesdays LiveNation is planning. Among the concerts that should* be included are:

  • Blink-182 with Fallout Boy
  • Nickelback
  • Toby Keith with Trace Adkins
  • Def Leppard with Poison

So, it looks like this offer includes musical entertainment for everyone!

*Restrictions do apply for this offer: “Participating or select shows. Subject to availability.” Whatever that means.

To obtain the “no service fee” deal, you need to purchase your tickets through LiveNation.com. All concerts are at Journal Pavilion, Albuquerque.

Comments Off on SAVE $10 ON GLOBALQUERQUE TICKETS

It’s a long, long way to September…but you’ll save big if you buy your tickets NOW for ¡Globalquerque!

While other big arts events are being suspended or canceled this year (Festival Flamenco Internacional de Albuquerque, anyone?), ¡Globalquerque!  — our big international music fiesta — rolls on. Thank goodness!

Tickets are now on sale for the 2009 event, which runs September 25 and 26 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. Earlybird tickets are available through June 27 and will save you significant samoleons. For example, an earlybird adult 2-day pass runs just $40 — a savings of $10 off the regular advance ticket price, and a whopping $20 off the day of show price!

Plus, if you buy your tickets at the NHCC box office, you’ll save Ticketmaster convenience fees, which can total $10 or more.

Besides all the world-class music, last year’s ¡Globalquerque! featured an entire day of free programs, music demonstrations, and more. When we learn more about a potential free day for 2009, we’ll post details.

The NHCC box office is located at 1701 4th St SW, Albuquerque.
