Common tickets
finally on sale

It's taken a few months longer than expected, but tickets have finally gone on sale for Common at Pipeline Cafe on Sept. 24.

Rumors about this show have been circulating since the beginning of summer, just after the rapper released his latest album, "Be," in May. It also had to be rescheduled after he agreed to attend the MTV Video Music Awards last month, which took place the same weekend he was supposed to perform out here.

Tickets for the 18-and-over concert are priced at $30, with special VIP tickets available for $50. Doors open at 7 p.m. that night, with an 11 p.m. curfew so the club's "Level Saturdays" party can get started on time. Call 589-1999 for more info ...

AND WHILE they don't officially go on sale until next week, I've got the scoops on how you can score tickets to next month's Lifehouse concert.

That's the only way you can get them before Monday, when they go on sale at all Ticketmaster outlets.

This will be the first Hawaii performance for Lifehouse, currently enjoying success with the single "You and Me." San Diego's Building a Better Spaceship and Kauai's Cane Field Heroes will also play at the 21-and-over show ...

WANT TO be rewarded for eating fast food? Burger King is the place for you this month.

All you have to do is purchase four Angus Steak Burger or Tendercrisp Chicken Sandwich extra value meals, and you'll score a free ticket to the restaurant's "Get Down Session" at the Blaisdell Arena. The Sept. 23 concert will feature Fiji, Natural Vibrations, Malino and Koa'uka, along with special guest appearances by New York's DJ Noodles and Los Angeles' DJ E-Man.

Neighbor island residents are also being given a chance to get in on the action -- Burger King will award complete travel packages to 14 lucky winners who signed up by last weekend.

Don't want to stuff yourself with all those calories? Tickets are also available for the "Get Down Session" at the Blaisdell Box Office for $20 ...
