LOS ANGELES, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Live Nation has announced that it has entered into an agreement to sell general admission lawn seating tickets for the 2008 amphitheatre concert season at Costco retail stores nationwide. This marks the promoter's first foray into national level retail sales.
The tix will be sold in the form of a "Concert Pack Card" which will retail for 39.99. Each card will include a Personal Identification number, or PIN that will be redeemable for two general admission tickets to any 2008 concerts at amphitheatres which are owned and operated by LN, subject to availability. The PIN will also allow the cardholder to download six mp3s from a Live Nation-branded music download page supplied by Puretacks.
"For the first time ever, consumers can give the gift of live music this holiday season and provide their friends and family tickets to some of the greatest concerts in the world," said Nathan Hubbard, President of Live Nation Ticketing. "This is an exciting new way for music fans to come see their favorite artists play live, and a great opportunity for Live Nation to extend the live concert experience to a brand new audience."
For those of you who have been living in a cave, Costco is a chain of large warehouse stores that provide customers who pay for memberships the ability to purchase consumer goods in bulk. The LN ticket packs are on sale now at 263 Costco locations around the U.S. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
