The 25th season of summer concerts at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY is underway. To thank supporters for 25 years of patronage for some of the season’s shows, Live Nation has instituted fan appreciation promotions not unlike professional baseball teams.

Live Nation has traditionally tried two-for-one lawn tickets or $20 tickets at its venues, yet this seems to be a first promotional calendar we have seen for Jones Beach, a rare summer shed with no lawn seating.

Throughout the season concert-goers will instantly be qualified for more than 25 chances to win prizes including: autographed memorabilia, the latest edition 80 gig Apple i-pod, gift certificates, seat upgrade opportunities, cell phones, gym memberships, Beach Bucks, limited edition Jones Beach merchandise and more.

At select concerts one lucky fan will instantly become the night’s grand prize winner just by picking up a specially coded Jones Beach program. For select shows just getting to the venue early is the ticket to win. The first 25 patrons in line for the James Taylor show on June 22, Rush on July 14, and the Jethro Tull and Peter Frampton performance on August 9 will win special prizes on the spot.

To kick off the fan appreciation promotions one concert attendee at the highly anticipated Stevie Wonder concert on June 18 will walk away with the latest top-of-the-line 80 gig silver Apple i-pod.
