NEW YORK, July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Live Nation and Gotham Air, the premier travel app and mobile website for New Yorkers, today announce the ultimate VIP flight package allowing concertgoers to experience Nikon at Jones Beach Theater like never before.

"We have teamed up to create the ultimate VIP gift and offering for client entertaining. Traffic driving to Jones Beach can often take hours, but with our new Fly. Rock. Repeat., you no longer have to worry about being late for a concert."

Priced at $5,000 per person, the Fly. Rock. Repeat. concert package includes a roundtrip flight on a Gotham Air Bell 427 Twin Engine Helicopter to Nikon at Jones Beach Theater from select departure locations: Wall Street Helipad (14 minute flight), Westchester County Airport (28 minute flight) and Morristown, New Jersey (26 minute flight). Purchasers will also enjoy a seat within the first ten rows of the stage, access to the private Live Nation Hospitality Room (including private bars and restrooms), a personal Live Nation concierge, backstage tour and dinner before the show, a pre-concert boat ride and more.

"We are lucky to have one of the top amphitheaters in the country in our backyard," said Dan Casale, Vice President of Live Nation. "In Live Nation's continued effort to provide our fans with innovative experiences, we are thrilled to partner with Gotham Air to pioneer a program that will give fans a first class opportunity to experience a show.
