“For the first time ever, consumers can give the gift of live music this holiday season and provide their friends and family tickets to some of the greatest concerts in the world,” said Nathan Hubbard, President of Live Nation Ticketing. “This is an exciting new way for music fans to come see their favorite artists play live, and a great opportunity for Live Nation to extend the live concert experience to a brand new audience.”
Libby Biason, Vice President of National Alliances at Live Nation, commented, “Costco should be commended for embracing this innovative approach to selling concert tickets and serving the millions of music fans who pass through their doors every day.”
After purchasing or receiving an Amphitheatre Concert Pack card as a gift, consumers simply register as Live Nation ticket club members at http://www.livenation.com/amppack, and sign up to receive regular email notifications when new concerts are scheduled in their local area for the 2008 season. When a show of interest pops up, registered music fans simply enter their PIN code on the back of the card to redeem their two general admission lawn tickets. Music fans will also use this PIN code to download six of their favorite tracks from the Live Nation music download page.
