Do you remember when young Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears shared the television screen in the 80′s as Mouseketeers doing variety skits for the Mickey Mouse Club? Maybe you recall  Selena Gomez  practicing her spells on Wizards of Waverly Place? And this wouldn’t be a complete blog post if we didn’t talk about Miley Cyrus as undercover pop star… Hannah Montana anyone? Yeah, that’s right.

Now, let’s flash forward to today where Justin is busting the hottest moves across the main stage, Selena Gomez headlined her own tour, Miley is all the rage, Demi is mentoring up-and-coming artists on The X Factor, and Britney has a two-year residency in Las Vegas?

Ticketmaster Holiday Tips – Holiday Gift Giving

Ticketmaster Ticket Transfer for Gifting

Looking for the perfect present for everyone on your list? Avoid the holiday shopping frenzy and wrap up the most thoughtful gifts yet: TICKETS to rock out with a favorite band, cheer on their top team or sing along to a sensational Broadway musical.

This year you can do all of your gift buying and delivery from the comfort of your home—even at the last minute.

Here’s how to hook up the perfect event for friends and family on your list, no matter where they are:

  1. Buy tickets as you normally would at Ticketmaster’s website
  2. Log into “My Account”
  3. Select the tickets you want to “gift” or transfer*
  4. Enter your personalized message, then click or tap the Transfer Tickets button and your gift is on its way!

Transferring tickets from your computer or mobile phone is a safe, convenient and quick way to “gift” tickets to your special someone this holiday season and all year round. Plus, you can transfer tickets up until the event free of charge, which means you’ll never scramble at the last minute again (and will gain a few fans yourself in the process).

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.
