Live Nation, one of the most popular in-house ticketing companies, has signed a three-year ticketing deal with Blockbuster. Under this new agreement, Live Nation will become Blockbuster’s exclusive ticket retailer at approximately 500 Blockbuster stores in “strategically chosen” markets across the country for the start of the 2009 concert season.
Since Live Nation’s deal with Ticketmaster expires at the end of this year, this new agreement with Blockbuster stores will essentially replace the existing Ticketmaster venues for Live Nation with the new Blockbuster locations. Additionally, the selected Blockbuster stores will offer exclusive blocks of tickets available during the first four hours of ticket sales as well as general ticket sales as long as supplies last.
