    How to Buy X Games Tickets Online
    Tickets for the August 2004 Summer X Games in Los Angeles went on sale at 12 noon on June 17, 2004 and they are available online through Ticketmaster. Ticket prices range from $5 to $15. I recommend purchasing your tickets now, and buying the best tickets you can afford, because some viewing locations are not that great, especially for the half pipe events

    Meet Me at the Los Angeles X Games!
    The 10th annual EXPN Summer X Games will take place in Los Angeles, California August 5-8, 2004. This is great news for me because (1) I live in Venice Beach not far from the X Games venue, and (2) that date does not conflict with the early September Speed Worlds in Italy which I am also hoping to attend. I will be in the press area at all of the Staples Center events, which includes the skateboarding and inline skating competitions and some of the Moto X and stunt bike events.

    ESPN Confirms 2004 X Games Sports and Venues

(B) Most of the 2004 events will take place at either Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles or the Home Depot Sports Center in Carson (all inline skating and skateboarding events will be at Staples Center), (C) There will be only final events at the 2004 Summer X Games - no preliminaries.

    Eight new TV and print ads for the Summer X Games were filmed in April of 2004 at the Los Angeles International Airport. The ads portray X Games X professional athletes in various airport scenarios, all rushing to get to Los Angeles for the the X Games.
