A hearing was held on the proposed merger of Ticketmaster and Live Nation

to evaluate the impact of the merger on competition and consumer rights. Witnesses discussed the potential impact on ticket prices for concerts and other events. Other topics included why the merger should be allowed and a recent incident in which some online ticket buyers for a Bruce Springsteen concert were told the event was sold out and redirected to a resale site, TicketsNow, owned by Ticketmaster, which Ticketmaster maintains was a computer glitch. close
