LOS ANGELES, Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Live Nation Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: LYV) today announced that it priced an offering of $575 million in aggregate principal amount of 4.875% senior notes due 2024 (the “Notes”). The Notes were priced at 100.000% of their principal amount. The Notes will be guaranteed by certain domestic subsidiaries of the company.
