Concert company Live Nation is bringing back a $20 ticket offer it unveiled last summer, and the deal applies to more than 40 Indianapolis events.
A “$20 all-in” ticket promotion — meaning customers pay no additional fees — will be available from 8 a.m. April 30 through 11:59 p.m. May 8.
Local appearances by Imagine Dragons, Luke Bryan, Kevin Hart, Niall Horan and Zac Brown Band are included in the discount deal.

Here are 10 suggested shows for getting the most for your money during Live Nation’s “National Concert Week”:
1. Dead & Company
The show: 7 p.m. June 6, Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center.
No miracles needed. Here’s a bargain-basement chance to catch Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann at the venue where hundreds of ticketless fans charged the back fence of the amphitheater’s lawn in 1995. John Mayer will be there, too.
2. Rod Stewart, Cyndi Lauper
The show: 7:30 p.m. Aug. 18, Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center.
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Sir Rod Stewart will make his first Indiana appearance since 2004.
3. Vans Warped Tour
The show: 11 a.m. July 24, Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center.
Warped organizers say this is the final summer the tour will travel from coast to coast. Dozens of bands, including Simple Plan, Reel Big Fish and Every Time I Die, will play at Ruoff.
4. Kesha, Macklemore
The show: 7 p.m. July 19, Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center.
If Kesha replicates her powerful Grammy night rendition of “Praying,” that’s worth $20 alone.
5. Avenged Sevenfold, Prophets of Rage
The show: 5:30 p.m. Aug. 12, Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center.
Back in 2000, Rage Against the Machine canceled a co-headlining tour with the Beastie Boys after Beastie Boy Mike D injured his shoulder in a bicycle accident. Deer Creek Music Center (now Ruoff) was a scheduled stop on that tour that never happened, and neither Rage nor the Beasties ever made it back to Central Indiana. Prophets of Rage, a band made up of three former members of Rage Against the Machine plus Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Cypress Hill’s B-Real, represents a bit of closure for Mike D’s poorly timed spill.
The show: 8 p.m. July 17, Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park.
Sure, the Chainsmokers seemingly play Indianapolis every other month. But a visit from Halsey, who collaborated with the Chainsmokers on 12-weeks-at-No.-1-hit “Closer,” is relatively rare.
7. Gov’t Mule, The Avett Brothers
The show: 7 p.m. Aug. 23, Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center.
Beyond a sure-to-please performance by the Avetts, Gov’t Mule will perform Pink Floyd songs on this limited-edition ”Dark Side of the Mule” program.
8. Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Dwight Yoakam
The show: 6:30 p.m. Aug. 18, Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park.
It’s hard to argue against paying less than $7 per iconic country performer on the so-called “LSD” (Lucinda, Steve and Dwight) tour.
9. Ozzy Osbourne
The show: 7:30 p.m. Sept. 23, Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center.
If your concert bucket list includes music’s Prince of Darkness, this date is part of a three-year farewell tour for Ozzy (he retired from playing dates with Black Sabbath in 2017).
10. Weezer, Pixies
The show: 7:30 p.m. July 8, Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center.
All the fun you had in the ’90s probably deserves this one-night encore, right?
Local appearances by Charlie Puth, Chris Brown, Dierks Bentley, G-Eazy, Keith Urban, Logic, Maroon 5, Ray LaMontagne, Rob Zombie, Steely Dan, and Smashing Pumpkins also are included in the offer.
