Gexa Energy Pavilion annually plays host to a slew of big summer concerts, and this year as a special treat — or perhaps to entice people to go out in the heat — Live Nation has announced a special Kickoff to Summer offer, giving fans access to select shows for just $20 per ticket.

While the deal won't include every concert coming to the Fair Park venue this summer — notable omissions include Weezer, Dixie Chicks, and Zac Brown Band — it does feature the vast majority of acts between May 13 and September 17, including Hall & Oates, Darius Rucker, Korn and Rob Zombie, the Avett Brothers, and Gwen Stefani.

That $20 is a flat fee, by the way; Live Nation doesn't hide fees in its purchases. But there is one catch: The promotion only runs for one week, so you'd better pay attention to the times. It starts at 2 am on Friday, May 13, and runs through 9:59 pm on Friday, May 20. Go here to purchase tickets and for more information on the offer.
