How Ticketmaster Conquered the World of Live Entertainment. Ticketmaster is the world’s leading ticket provider. They provide tickets for a wide range of events, including sports, music concerts, theatrical productions, and family shows. Tickets can be purchased online, at a number of retail outlets, or by calling the Ticketmaster Booking Lines.
History of the Company.
Ticketmaster was formed in Phoenix, Arizona in 1976. They produced their first tickets the following year for a concert at the University of New Mexico.
In 1978 they signed their first international client in Oslo, Norway. In the same year they signed their first exclusive contract with a venue, the Louisiana Superdome, and with a major league sports team, the New Orleans Jazz; now known as the Utah Jazz.
In 1980 they expanded into Canada, entering the UK market the following year, and Australia in 1998.

Merger with Live Nation.
In 2010 Ticketmaster merged with Live Nation, the world’s largest concert promoter. The merger led to the creation of a new parent company, Live Nation Entertainment. This merger tightened Ticketmaster’s grip on the entertainment industry.
TicketsNow is a subsidiary of Ticketmaster that acts as a marketplace for tickets, where customers can buy and sell tickets. This has not been without controversy as some have argued Ticketmaster has used this outlet to corner the re-seller market at inflated prices.
Ticketmaster’s Business Model.
Ticketmaster makes money by charging a service fee on top of the ticket price. By signing exclusive contracts with venues and sports teams they have been able to dominate the market and make it difficult for competitors to gain a foothold in the industry. Over the years people and businesses have called the Ticketmaster phone number to complain about fees charged, are excessive. And have resulted in inflated ticket prices that are unfair to its customers.
Most famously, the band Pearl Jam led a crusade against this pricing structure, accusing Ticketmaster of developing a monopoly on the ticketing industry. This effort ultimately failed as Pearl Jam realised they could not conduct large-scale national tours without using venues signed to exclusive deals with Ticketmaster.
