Live Nation Receives Requisite Consent in Connection With Consent Solicitation for Ticketmaster’s 10.75% Senior Notes Due 2016

The Consent Solicitation Statement provides that, if the requisite consent is received and a supplemental indenture is validly entered into, the supplemental indenture will bind all holders of the Notes (including those did not give their consent) and consents delivered will become irrevocable. The Company expects that the supplemental indenture will be entered into promptly and provide that the Proposed Amendments will take effect upon the consummation of a series of previously announced refinancing transactions (the "Related Transactions"), as further described in the Consent Solicitation Statement.

The Company’s obligation to make cash payments of $7.50 per $1,000 in outstanding principal amount of the Notes (the "Consent Payment") for consents validly delivered prior to the Expiration Time and not revoked according to the terms of the Consent Solicitation Statement is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including the consummation of the Related Transactions. The Company expects to make the Consent Payments on or promptly after the consummation of the Related Transactions. No accrued interest will be paid on the Consent Payment. Non-consenting holders will not receive the Consent Payment.
