Are you sick and tired of waiting in security lines to get into see your favorite band? Well, that could soon be a thing of the past…if you’re willing to pay for it.
Live Nation has teamed with IdentoGo, the company associated with the TSA Pre-check at airports, to provide a similar service for concert fans. The service, which will cost $85 for five years, will provide registered, pre-approved fans with a dedicated line at concerts and festivals. In order to qualify, besides the fee, concertgoers only need a valid government issued ID, and once enrolled they’ll get an ID number that will help them walk right into a show.
Live Nation has already tested the service at the Watershed Festival in Quincy, Washington last month, with those registrations good until the end of next year. They can be used at such upcoming festivals a Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival in Las Vegas and Meadows Music & Arts Festival in Queens, NY, as well as certain venues across the country.
