Monopoly: Live Nation Edition

It looks like Ticketmaster is about to get some serious competition as Live Nation, the owners and promoters of music venues all over the globe as well as the group that gave Jay-Z and Madonna their $100 million contracts, will be launching its own ticketing arm once its contract with Ticketmaster expires at the end of the year. A little competition is always good for both the consumers and the producers. But then again, at the end of the day, Live Nation is still a corporation. Sooner or later, they’re going to suck the life out of us too much like every other corporation does.
