Looks like the deal is gone, but if you’d been watching your spam folder, you may have seen a Groupon deal recently for discounted tickets to the Fashion Meets Music Festival. $65 tickets, good for both days of concerts, were on sale for $40.

If you’re on the Nationwide Arena mailing list, you may have seen the following today:

So what gives? These can’t be all good-natured deals that promoters just feel like passing along to consumers. Are arena shows over-saturating the market? Are high-ticket prices keeping sales down? Are people just not interested in these acts?

I’ve got my own theories … 🙂
