Like many artists this summer, Beyonce is offering discounted seating on her  "I Am...." tour that hits the U.S.  on June 21.  At each U.S. venue, other than her four-night stand at The Encore in Las Vegas, 2000 seats per arena will be sold for $20.  Many of the "economy-value" tickets have already been sold, but the remaining 1,000 per show will be released to the public on Friday, May 29.

It's a smart move and Beyonce isn't the only one with a low tier of pricing this year. Both Taylor Swift and Keith Urban offer $20 seats. No Doubt is selling lawn seats for as low as $10 for some of its amphitheater shows.  U2, whose US tour starts in September, set aside 10,000 seats per stadium, priced at $30.

The diva is currently playing to sold-out shows in Europe before launching here with two concerts at Madison Square Garden.
