WAL-MART has reached an agreement with LIVE NATION to sell tickets to concerts and other events at approximately 500 stores. BLOOMBERG reports that the service will launch in the next few months in cities such as CHICAGO and LOS ANGELES.
The revelations came from LIVE NATION Executive Chairman IRVING AZOFF, who was speaking at the NBA Technology Summit in DALLAS. Reportedly, the tickets will be sold in the stores' entertainment section; what the surcharge will be, compared to other outlets such as BLOCKBUSTER stores, is not known.
