Live Nation expands even further.

Standard

Live Nation who merged with Ticketmaster back in 2010 to create Live Nation Entertainment, giving its users “more options than ever to enjoy live events” (http://www.ticketmaster.com/h/about_us.html)… or did that really just give the company more control over ticket pricing, and in fact less options for concert-goers?  Either way, the concentrated ticket powerhouse has now purchased yet another music company to add to it’s repertoire, setlist.fm the ‘wiki-like’ website where users can collect and share musical artists’ setlists… ‘all for free!’  Seems like a reasonable enough addition to the Live Nation fam, right?  The way I see it, the purchase of setlist.fm provides a way for Live Nation to see what musicians people are most interested and perhaps they hope to use this knowledge to expand and deepen their concert options?  I’d be alright with that.

About madie m.

Hello, my name is Madie. I'm a born and raised Norfolkian, took the popular public school route, (Larchmont Elementary , Blair Middle, Maury High) and am currently finishing up my Second year at the University of Virginia. In Charlottesville I am involved in many media extracurricular activities including writing for the Arts and Entertainment section of UVa's Cavalier Daily and a morning news broadcaster on one of the area's most popular radio stations, 92.7 KISS FM. I am currently majoring in French and Economics at the University and minoring in Media Studies. I love learning about the happenings of new technologies as well as new music. I think it's incredibly important that we all keep up to date with the rapid developments of the technological world so as not to find ourselves lost in the dust. But if you're not into searching the tech sections of news sites and other sites like Mashable.com and TechCrunch.com, no worries, that's what I'm here for. Just check out my latest "digital trend" and you should be safe. Apart from the music and tech scene, I enjoy running, practicing yoga, cooking French cuisine, and doing whatever else might give me a laugh on any given day!
