2013 was a great year  for concerts and live events around the globe, and we’re excited to share some highlights with you from the year. We had a chance to connect with our social team and uncover the top 5 most social artists and events from 2013.

Our site features multiple ways to interact and become more social with your favorite bands, artists, and live events. With our interactive seat map, did you know that you can tag where you’re sitting to your Facebook page? This was an exciting product that we rolled in 2013 for fans! You can now social share those seats with your friends on Facebook so they can sit close to you at the show. Make sure to mention that you’re  attending and Facebook RSVP to the next live event you attend and round up your crew. Being social is a great way to let people know where you’re sitting so they can easily find you at the venue.  Let’s recap our top performers from the year! Read the rest of this entry »

Ticketmaster (Red) Campaign World AIDS Day

 

Ticketmaster (Red) Campaign World AIDS Day

Every Dec. 1 for the past 25 years, people from around the world have come together to commemorate the fight against HIV/AIDS; to pay respect to those who have succumbed to AIDS and to support those currently living with HIV.

 Each year, since 1988, they have done this by uniting to observe World AIDS Day.

 This year’s World AIDS Day theme is “Shared Responsibility: Strengthening Results for an AIDS-Free Generation” and here at Ticketmaster, we’re doing our part to turn this theme into reality.

Through a special partnership with (RED)™, we’re raising money for the  Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which will be used towards prevention, treatment, counseling, HIV testing and care services for some of the poorest, most at-risk and marginalized groups facing HIV and AIDS in Africa. For every Ticketmaster mobile app downloaded Nov. 4 –30—and available for free in the iTunes® store and in the Android store—Ticketmaster made a donation to the Global Fund**.

 We’re also encouraging you as fans to get involved.

 Now and until Dec. 15, anytime you purchase tickets for concerts, sports, theatre and family events through Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com, you can make a $5 contribution that will go towards the Global Fund—towards much-needed monies for more services and medicines in densely affected areas.

 And, we’re not stopping there.

 We’re encouraging our employees to donate, matching their contributions, up to $10,000.

2013 marks the first time we’ve collaborated with (RED)™ to benefit the Global Fund, a campaign that has raised more than $215 million and positively impacted 14 million people*. Through our combined efforts with our fans and employees, we’re hoping to build upon the critical work that this organization has already done.
