Ticketmaster releases the list of concerts where customers can use their free concert vouchers. But none of the vouchers are for concerts in Michigan.

Ticketmaster's list includes 440 events that will be free this summer to those with vouchers as the result of a class-action lawsuit.

A lawsuit was filed in 2003 against Ticketmaster claiming it charged excessive and deceptive fees.

Ticketmaster denied the claims, but settled the lawsuit last April.

The company is giving customers who made purchases on its website between October 21, 1999 and February 27, 2013 vouchers for tickets and online codes for discounts on tickets.

Under the court settlement, Ticketmaster had to have the vouchers available at venues owned and operated by its parent company Live Nation. However, according to the Detroit Free Pres, Live Nation owns no large concert venues in Michigan.

So unless Michigan residents are up for a road trip, there isn't much hope at this point for a free concert in the state. To check to see if you have a voucher, log into your Ticketmaster account and look for an option that says "Active Vouchers".
