Thousands in NJ could get free concert tickets

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Hundreds of thousands of people who attended concerts at a New Jersey amphitheater could get free tickets and discount coupons under a preliminary court settlement with promoter Live Nation.

Two New Jersey men sued the promoter in 2009, claiming it was illegal to tack on a $6 parking fee to each ticket at PNC Bank Arts Center when not all concertgoers drive. They also say Live Nation's "no-fee" promotion was deceptive.

Anyone who bought tickets online through Live Nation and Ticketmaster between 2003 and 2011 would be eligible. Live Nation estimates that amounts to about 363,000 people.

Under the settlement approved this week, Live Nation would admit no wrongdoing. A judge still needs to give final approval.

A Live Nation spokeswoman didn't immediately return a message seeking comment Tuesday.

    For decades, making some quick cash was the main drive behind so many who took the ride down the parkway to Atlantic City. But with so much to choose from nowadays, it looks like Atlantic City is in a lot of trouble.
