Win Tickets to Kanye West at NOKIA Theatre LA Live!
Kanye West tickets for the April 21st concert sold out extremely quickly this morning during pre-sale (uh oh!). But we're happy to announce that they just decided to have a second Kanye West concert at NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE taking place the next day on Tuesday, April 22.
Lucky for you, we have one pair of tickets to give away here on LAist. To enter the contest, you must submit a comment on this post telling us your favorite Downtown Area Los Angeles tip by 11:59:59 P.M., Monday, February 18, 2008. You must also be available to respond to an e-mail from from LAist by 3:00:00 P.M., Tuesday, February 19, 2008 if you're randomly selected to win the pair of tickets.
A Downtown LA tip could be your favorite restaurant, best cut through traffic tip, where to find bicycle racks, where free secret hidden wifi is, your favorite seat inside NOKIA Theatre L.A. Live, etc. Have fun with it, but tell us something about Downtown where Kanye will be playing. If you've never been downtown, we're sure you can find something cool via Google.
Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m., you can purchase them here at Ticketmaster.
