Ticketmaster

Ticketmaster is the world’s leading ticket sales company. It was founded in 1976 in Arizona, and its first concert was Electric Light Orchestra at the University of New Mexico in 1977. In 2009, Ticketmaster surpassed sales of 1 million paperless tickets. The company, now based in California, has faced criticism that it charges exorbitant fees. In 2010, it merged with concert promoter Live Nation, giving rise to Live Nation Entertainment, which trades on the NYSE under the symbol LYV.
