Top Social Shared Artists and Events from Ticketmaster 2013

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 Makes it Easy to Give this Holiday Season

Ticketmaster will donate an additional $1 for every “like” to Ticketmaster’s Facebook page now through 12/31.

 

At Ticketmaster, we value service to strengthen our ties with charitable partners and build community. Ticketmaster is proud to announce another year with the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® in support of their ninth annual Thanks and Giving® campaign.  Over the last four years, with your support, we have raised almost a million dollars to help save lives. One hundred percent (100%) of the donations benefit St. Jude, the nation’s leading pediatric research and treatment center devoted solely to children with cancer and other deadly diseases. St. Jude has developed protocols that help push overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent when the hospital opened in 1962, to 80 percent today. And no family ever pays St. Jude for anything.

This year, we’re pleased to announce three new ways for you to Give. To Help Them Live.

Option 1:  Donate During Checkout

Through January 6, 2013, fans will be able to make donations for the ninth annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign directly at the end of their ticket buying transaction via a click on a donation box.  This simple click can help save the lives of children in communities everywhere.

Option 2:  Donate Now

For the first time, we now have an easy way for you to give directly, even if you are not buying tickets.  Simply visit our donation event and make a $5 or more donation.

Option 3: Like to Donate

Ticketmaster is donating an additional $1 for each new like to Ticketmaster’s Facebook page through 12/31 – over $7,500 raised so far! You can help us spread the word by “liking” the page and by sharing a message from Ticketmaster’s Facebook page and/or retweeting one of the St. Jude messages from @Ticketmaster.

Even the smallest gifts make a big impact!  Here’s how your gifts of hope make a difference:

$3 = one box of pediatric isolation masks to help protect patients with compromised immune systems
$4 = one snack bag for patients and siblings
$8 = one blank medical teaching doll to help patients understand medical treatment and procedures
$10 = one rehabilitation weight used to help improve patients’ quality of life
$15 = four boxes of pediatric bandages
$20 = one new toy for hospital play areas or recreational areas at St. Jude housing facilities
$25 = one one box of toddler footies
$30 = one day’s worth of meals for a St. Jude family in the Kay Kafe, the St. Jude cafeteria
$35 = one #heystjude T-shirt seen in the video
$40 = one rehabilitation ball used in physical therapy
$50 = necessities for parents who may have hurriedly left home after their child’s diagnosis

Make saving children’s lives part of your holiday tradition and “give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not.”
