If heading to some concerts is on your summer to-do list, I’ve got some good news.

In celebration of National Concert Week, Live Nation will be offering $20 concert tickets to select shows May 1-7, or while supplies last. The deals begin at 9 a.m. Pacific and all fees/taxes are included in the $20 ticket price.

And, don’t worry, these are not tickets to concerts for bands you’ve never heard of. We’re talking artists like The Backstreet Boys, Brad Paisley, Jennifer Lopez, Florence + The Machine, New Kids on the Block, Train, The Goo Goo Dolls, The Who and more.

Because these are some pretty good deals, you’ll need to expect that tickets will sell out fast. You can sign up for a sale reminder on Live Nation’s website or download their app, which will likely be the best way to get tickets quickly.

Live Nation does not say just how good the seats are, so chances are you will not be in the front row. But, hey, paying just $20 to see an artist you love is awesome no matter where you’re standing.

If you’re a T-Mobile customer, you’ll actually have a chance to purchase tickets a day early, on April 30, so you’ll have a pick before the general public.

You will need to save the deal in your T-mobile Tuesdays app by May 1 and redeem it by then as well to receive a unique multiple-time use offer code. Ticket purchase limits will apply and are dependent on event-specific order limits.

If you’re lucky enough to get some $20 tickets, you may be even luckier than you think. According to a study led by Patrick Fagan, a lecturer at Goldsmiths, University of London, regularly attending concerts may actually add years to your life. Why? The researchers found that just 20 minutes of live entertainment increased “feelings of wellbeing” by 21 percent, which can improve your overall happiness and stress level.

Do you plan on going to any concerts this summer?
