Microsoft has teamed with Live Nation to establish an interactive display area for its Zune portable music device in 28 concert venues across the country. The Zune Spots, as they are called, will allow concertgoers to demo and buy the device on-site.

Additionally, the Zune division will award free concerts at Live Nation events, as well as create Zune Zones in certain Live Nation venues where fans with downloadable vouchers can watch the show in an area set aside with lawn chairs and a private waitstaff.
