Greensboro, NC -- Festivals, sporting events, concerts, and movies. All are on the agenda this summer.

We found some ways you can save on tickets for movies and concerts. LifeHacker.com shares how you can get cheaper movie tickets by finding free advanced screenings. 

Try AdvanceScreenings.com or the site's twitter account: @ncscreenings. You can also check Fandango, Fat Wallet and Retail me not for coupons and deals.

Let's talk concert and sporting event tickets. You have two options: purchase right away when they go on sale or take a risk and buy them second-hand. If you do buy them second-hand: make sure you watch out for Craigslist red flags, research the person selling the ticket to you and aways meet them in a public location and bring a friend with you.

Service fees at concerts and events can add up. Avoid those fees by going straight to the venue to buy the tickets. 

$20 Concert Tickets

No one stands to make a profit from Kid Rock's upcoming tour, especially the rocker.

In an effort to lure more fans to his shows and thwart scalpers, Kid Rock announced that all the tickets for his upcoming tour, VIP or otherwise, will go for $20 a pop. Thus, the "$20 Best Night Ever" U.S. summer tour.

 For a few lucky fans chosen at random, he's roped off the first two rows of his shows. Additionally, he's slashing beer prices to $4 a chug and designated drivers get free coffee. To block scalpers, concert promoters encourage paperless tickets. T-shirts are the same cost as tickets. To get the $20 tickets, fans should buy them from Walmart or Live Nation only.

The tour, in promotion of his 10th album, Rebel Soul, will kick off June 28 in Bristow, Va., and wrap up Sept. 15 in Tampa. Kool & The Gang, ZZ Top and Uncle Kracker landed the opening spots.

Kid Rock comes to NC September 10th at Charlotte Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre.
