Bristol-based venue operator and concert promoter MJR, which also promotes shows in Australia and New Zealand, has announced a tie-up with ticketing platform Eventbrite.

The two companies say that their new alliance “is focused on global ticket sales which commenced with over 25,000 ticket purchases for two concerts in Australia for 50 Cent, and will roll out into MJR’s portfolio of future touring events, creative productions and venues”.

Confirming the tie-up, MJR chief Richard Buck said yesterday: “With lots of innovative projects planned over the next years, a ticketing partnership with Eventbrite felt the right move to support our growth. They completely understand our independent ethos and can provide us with a constantly evolving tech platform that suits our needs and helps deliver our expansion as a leading global entertainment company”.

Meanwhile Eventbrite UK’s Head Of Music Paul Everett said: “This partnership with Richard and MJR Group is a direct result of Eventbrite’s continued dedication to the independent live music space. MJR are a highly ambitious company and we are aligned on how we view the future of the live music space around the world”.
