Live Nation Review
Based in Beverly Hills, CA, Live Nation is a company specializing in the promotion of live events. Although the company can trace its origins to a prior incarnation as SFX Entertainment, the Live Nation name didn't come into existence until 2005. Since then, the company has become a leading promoter of live events that has further branched out into negotiating exclusive deals with various artists, including Jay-Z, Madonna, and Nickelback.
Similar to GoTickets.com and Ticketfly, the company primarily promotes concerts and other live events at venues around the world. In 2010, Live Nation merged with online ticket broker Ticketmaster to form Live Nation Entertainment, Inc., effectively integrating the services provided by both companies. The partnership allows for greater access to available seats at reasonable prices.
The heart of the services provided by Live Nation is its promotion of live events in various cities throughout the world. LiveNation.com is designed to allow for convenient browsing of concerts by simply typing in your desired event, artist name, genre, preferred city, or even the name of a specific venue. You will then get personalized results based on either your detected location or the location you specified in your search.
The Great New York State Fair, Ozzfest, and the Jägermeister Music Tour are some of the festivals and multi-stage events directly produced by Live Nation. Some of the festivals produced by Live Nation are handled by LN/Gaiety, a Live Nation subsidiary. The company is especially active in its oversight of festivals throughout Europe, including many in the United Kingdom.
One of Live Nation's most highly publicized deals is its landmark arrangement with Madonna through its Live Artist division. The deal includes nearly all aspects of the pop star's career and future endeavors. However, the company is known for making unique deals with artists that include different partnerships and strategic arrangements.
Free streaming events are also offered periodically via the Live Nation website. Oftentimes, these are free shows by artists featured on the site who are in the middle of current tours or getting ready to launch an upcoming tour.
If you're not sure what you're looking for, LiveNation.com features top tours and trending tours on its homepage. There's also a live concert feed that's shows new concerts added, additional dates for current tours, and other important news plus convenient links back to the company's social media pages.
Since Live Nation owns the House of Blues chain, there's also a portion of the company's site dedicated to events at various House of Blues locations. While the "Ones to Watch" section for House of Blues highlights certain events, tickets for most shows can be purchased through the site or you can go directly to a specific House of Blues page to view full details of all shows.
Live Nation also has a convenient mobile app. The app, available for Apple and Android users, allows for pre-sale access to events with no password requirement, in-seat delivery of refreshments at select venues, instant access to your purchased "ticket" in electronic form, and mobile forms of payment. The Live Nation app also allows for easy upgrades while providing ticket and tour alerts. Concert tips are also provided, including information on parking and other essential logistics details.
Live Nation has a reputation for effectively connecting with social media. The following YouTube video, for instance, is one of the company's most popular social media features; their Live Nation TV channel on YouTube that focuses exclusively on all aspects of live shows from around the world.
