A securities fraud class action complaint alleges that Live Nation, via certain of its officers and directors, made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, the class action complaint alleges Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that Live Nation engaged in anticompetitive conduct, including charging high fees and extended contracts with talent, and retaliated against venues; (2) that, as a result, Live Nation was reasonably likely to incur regulatory scrutiny and face fines, penalties, and reputational harm; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

Current Live Nation shareholders who have held Live Nation stock since prior to February 23, 2022, can seek corporate reforms, the return of funds spent defending litigation back to the company, and a court approved incentive award at no cost to them whatsoever.

VNUE TO ACQUIRE LIVESTREAMING COMPANY STAGEIT

Acquisition Enables Creation of Full-Service Venue and Event Monetization Platform and Brings Key Music Recognition Technology Talent On Board

New York, NY (July 28, 2021) – In a strategic double-whammy, music technology company VNUE, Inc. (OTC:VNUE) today announced that the company is acquiring live streaming innovator StageIt in a deal that will add over nine million in revenue and access to thousands of performers and creators. The deal brings hundreds of thousands of live music fans and complementary technology to VNUE’s portfolio in addition to delivering key pioneering talent in the Music Recognition Technology (MRT) space to VNUE’s roster, which the company believes will accelerate the rollout of the company’s groundbreaking platform, Soundstr.

The companies expect to close within 60 days pending the completion of diligence and the required financial audit, and Stageit will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of VNUE.

StageIt, launched by musician Evan Lowenstein in 2010, is one of the earliest and most prominent live streaming companies. Lowenstein has served as Executive Chairman of StageIt since music industry veteran Stephen White joined as CEO in 2020. Exploring new alternative revenue-generating options outside of touring became essential for the live entertainment industry when the Covid-19 pandemic hit. Since then, thousands of artists have utilized StageIt’s services to monetize their livestreams and stay connected to their fans, from Grammy Award-winning Ramsey Lewis, American Idol star David Archuleta, and rock icon Joan Jett to international stars Celtic Thunder and fan favorites Devin Townsend and Rhett Miller. Music fans purchase tickets to see online concerts powered by StageIt’s best-in-class platform and enjoy the intimacy of these unique live experiences. The StageIt service is complimentary with VNUE’s set.fm “instant live” mobile and web platform, and the company will add a feature that not only allows fans to enjoy a livestream but purchase the audio of the performance immediately afterwards and relive the experience over and over.

In addition to White, Stageit is led by Chief Product Officer Vadim Brenner, both of whom have a long tenure in audio content recognition. White was president of Gracenote, Inc., which was bought by Nielsen in 2017, and more recently was CEO of music rights company Dubset Media Holdings, which was acquired by Los Angeles-based Pex last year. Gracenote is a well-known pioneer in audio “fingerprinting” technology, and Dubset specializes in ensuring that uploads of unofficial mixes and DJ sets can obtain copyright clearance for streaming, and that the subsequent royalties get paid to the right stakeholders.

Brenner also served in high level positions at both companies – at Gracenote, as Vice President of Product Management and at Dubset, as Chief Product Officer. In addition, the acquisition also brings together a “dream team” of engineering and development talent that VNUE not only will leverage to further the growth of StageIt, but also for Soundstr initiatives.

Zach Bair, CEO of VNUE, said, “The acquisition of StageIt represents the first step in a multi-pronged plan to grow the business and enhance shareholder value, as I have committed to since day one. The company will pursue both organic and inorganic opportunities that are synergistic, and with StageIt, we have incredible synergy not just with the StageIt platform and how we can integrate with our existing content platforms such as set.fm, but with the incredible leadership and talent pool that we will now have access to in order to move our Soundstr technology forward.”

“VNUE, as their name suggests, has been creating a platform for artists, labels, rights holders and venue operators that enhances revenue and helps resolve complex rights compliance. The addition of StageIt will enable the first full monetization suite for venues, festivals and events that will make it simple for our clients and operators to generate more revenue and embrace the hybrid future that livestreaming provides,” said White. “We couldn’t be more excited to join Zach and the VNUE team and to help push this vision forward.”

StageIt hosted 6,280 shows in 2020 and paid out over $7M to artists, generating more than $9.2M in gross revenues. The platform has over 58,000 performers and over 900,000 users from 135 countries. The company launched a venue program in 2020 and has a significant set of venue partnerships that include historic venues such as The Bluebird Cafe in Franklin TN, d.b.a. in New Orleans, LA, The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, CA, and many others.

About VNUE, Inc. (www.vnue.com)
VNUE, Inc., (OTC: VNUE) is a multi-faceted music technology company dedicated to monetizing the live music experience for artists, labels, writers, and publishers, with products such as its set.fm instant content distribution platform (www.set.fm), exclusive license partner and "instant live" pioneer DiscLive (www.disclive.net), and protecting the rights of artists and writers with the company's Soundstr music recognition technology (MRT) (www.soundstr.com). The veteran entrepreneurs, artists, and songwriters behind VNUE, led by music and tech entrepreneur and recording artist Zach Bair (www.zachbairmusic.com), are passionate about the future of their industry and ensuring that rights holders' value is not lost amid always-changing technology. VNUE also holds a 4.99% stake in RockHouse Live International, a new live music venue & restaurant chain that was recently launched in Clearwater Beach Florida, and which is expanding globally, with new locations announced in Key West, FL, and Oxford, MS.

Sector Snap: Concert companies jump on upbeat note
Concert promoters, ticket sellers advance after analyst says ticket sales remain strong

NEW YORK (AP) -- Concert ticket sales are holding strong despite the weak economy, an analyst said Thursday, boosting shares of concert companies.

TKTM 5.30 +0.72

WMG 4.41 -0.21


Thomas Weisel Partners analyst Benjamin Mogil wrote in a note to clients that meetings with concert promoter Live Nation Inc. earlier in the week reinforced his view that the company is seeing strength in ticket sales across multiple music genres despite consumer discretionary spending.

Through February, the company kept up with last year's pace in terms of pricing and sales, Mogil said. He said he expects strong first-quarter results, which are to be released in May.

If the proposed merger with Ticketmaster Entertainment Inc. is not approved, Mogil said Live Nation's go-it-alone approach will continue to give it an edge in the industry.

Live Nation last year ended a long-term contract to sell its concert tickets through Ticketmaster, and it launched its own ticketing service for its venues in January.

That threatened to siphon off at least 15 percent of Ticketmaster's revenue and set the two companies up for a head-to-head fight for ticketing contracts. But in February, they announced they had agreed to lay down arms and join forces.

Mogil kept the target price for Live Nation at $8.50 and held an "Overweight" rating on the stock.

In late trading Thursday, Live Nation shares rose 41 cents, or 13.3 percent, to $3.49, while Ticketmaster stock rose 57 cents, or 14 percent, to $4.64. Shares of Warner Music Group Corp. gained 84 cents, or 21.4 percent, to $4.76.

Live Nation and Comcast Announce Naming Agreement for Hartford's Premiere Music Venue - 'Comcast Theatre'





HARTFORD, Conn., April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Comcast, the nation's leading provider of entertainment, information and communications, and Live Nation, the world's largest live music company, today announced a seven year partnership that gives Comcast the naming rights to the former New England Dodge Music Center located in Hartford, Connecticut. Starting with the opening of this summer's concert season, the amphitheater will be called the Comcast Theatre.

(Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20090415/NE99049 )

"We are excited to join with Live Nation to place our name on one of the most-loved entertainment venues in Connecticut," said Michael Parker, Area Vice President for Comcast in Connecticut. "As we continue to invest and grow throughout the state, this partnership underscores our long-term commitment to delivering an unparalleled entertainment experience to our local customers."

The Comcast Theatre, owned and operated by Live Nation, can accommodate 25,000 people and hosts approximately 20 concerts per year. Some of the well-known acts on this summer's lineup include Nickelback, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Coldplay, Phish, Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith and Dave Matthews Band, with many more expected to be announced shortly.

"Comcast recognizes that our live music platform is a unique and powerful way to reach their customers," said Jim Koplik, Chairman of Live Nation's Northeast Region. "Brands like Comcast realize that an association with live music is impactful and drives their business. On the heels of a record year in 2008 at this venue, and with concert attendance looking very strong for the coming season, we are seeing a very healthy appetite for these kinds of sponsorship deals despite the current economic downturn."

With more than 1,300 employees in Connecticut, Comcast has made significant investments throughout the state, offering the most advanced services over its fiber-optic network, including high definition television, video-on-demand, digital video recorders, high-speed Internet and phone services. Additionally, Comcast operates two call centers in the state, including a state-of-the-art facility in Enfield that opened in 2007 as part of Comcast's commitment to its local customers. The company is also proud of its partnership with the 83 Connecticut communities it serves, contributing grants to non-profit organizations, in-kind services like high-speed Internet and cable television to schools, libraries and Boys & Girls Clubs and volunteer hours. Last May, over 1,000 of Comcast's Connecticut employees participated in the company's annual Comcast Cares Day, volunteering for Comcast's company-wide day of service at seven nonprofit organizations throughout Connecticut. The company is gearing up for this year's Comcast Cares Day, which will take place this year on Saturday, April 25.

U2 360 TOUR Presented by BlackBerry: FASTEST SELL OUT & LARGEST CONCERT ATTENDANCE IN ROSE BOWL HISTORY




U2 CONCERT SOLD OUT AT 90,000 TICKETS!

LOS ANGELES, April 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- With combined sales this morning of over 450,000 tickets sold, U2 360 Tour has now surpassed an amazing 2.5 million tickets sold throughout Europe and North America since the tour was announced on March 9th.

The response to the tour has been overwhelming as records continue to shatter as new shows are put on sale. In Los Angeles, at 4:00 pm today, tour promoters Live Nation announced that the Rose Bowl performance was sold out at 90,000 tickets. This makes U2's October 25th performance both the fastest selling and the largest attended concert to play the Rose Bowl in history.

Last Monday, when the first North American shows were put on sale, U2 360 Tour, presented by BlackBerry, set the largest single day attendance records in New York (82,000 tickets sold), Boston (72,000 tickets sold) and Chicago (65,000 tickets sold). This morning continued the trend as a 2nd and final New York Giant Stadium performance (Sept. 25th) was an immediate sell-out, bringing the total tickets sold at that venue to 164,000. In Washington sales quickly surpassed 60,000 tickets sold in the first few hours while the 2nd Chicago concert (Sept 13th) sold an additional 60,000 tickets. Vancouver kept up the momentum with over 57,000 tickets sold. Along with the huge L.A. success, additional on-sales in Atlanta, Tampa and the second Boston performance brought today's total ticket sales to over 450,000.

The European sales have also been record breaking. At Dublin's Croke Park, 160,000 tickets for U2 360 Tour performances on July 24th and 25th sold out in just 40 minutes leading to the immediate announcement of a 3rd and final event in that city. Sales in Gothenburg and Amsterdam were so brisk that 2nd performances were added and sold out within hours of them going on sale. In Zagreb all previous sales records in that country were shattered with an unprecedented two sold out stadium events. U2's tour opener in Barcelona sold out in 54 minutes becoming the fastest ever sold out show in the history of pop music in Spain with a second show subsequently added.

The final 2009 concert dates were also announced today. Tickets for U2 concerts in Raleigh, NC on October 3rd at Carter Finlay Stadium as well as the October 18th performance in Norman, OK at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium go on sale this Friday. Tickets for the October 23rd performance at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, NV go on sale this Saturday. And lastly, tickets for the October 12th performance in Dallas, TX at New Cowboys Stadium, in Houston, TX on October 14th at Reliant Stadium and in Phoenix, AZ on October 20th at University of Phoenix Stadium will go on sale Monday, April 20th.

Full details of all dates and on-sale information as well as a virtual model of the unique production and seating positions can be found on a dedicated microsite at U2.com. Subscribers to U2's official website U2.com will have an opportunity to purchase tickets in advance of the public on sale date.

I just stumbled accross it myself the other day. I think the deal with ticketmaster will be up soon and they will handle all the ticketing themselves. Around 14% of ticketmasters marketshare

ferrari5- Great find - I didn't even know they were public. I'm in the Northeast and they broker tons of shows. I know they have a different deal than Ticketmaster but I haven't really checked into it.

I ran across this stock while following "my college band" that i have seen over 200 times. The band is the Zac Brown Band and they just got their first song on the radio called "Chicken Fried". This band has alot of talent and hard to find someone in the Country genre that will put on a better live show. While doing my initial searching, i found that they have signed Jay-Z, Madonna, U2, Nickleback.....So it peaked my interest.

As for the company, I am still doing my DD, so the ibox will be a slow process becuase it is my first time as a moderator. Feel free to assist or drop some tips my way.
