From the filed marked “another fucking Live Nation acquisition”, the live giant’s ticketing firm Ticketmaster has bought Czech ticketing outfit Ticketpro, boosting its presence in Central Europe and especially the Czech Republic.

“The live entertainment industry continues to flourish. There are more events taking place and artists on the road than ever before, coupled with increasing demand from fans across the world,” says Ticketmaster International man Mark Yovich. “Acquiring Ticketpro enables us to better service our clients in Central Europe, while providing a world class service to the many fans in these countries”.

Meanwhile Ticketpro chief Serge Grimaux added: “Having started our business in the Czech Republic, Ticketpro has established a proven track record in Central Europe and many emerging markets around the world. Combining this with Ticketmaster’s global scale and reach will ensure that Ticketpro continues to provide an even better experience to its current fans, while attracting considerably more. This is an exciting time for the business and the live entertainment industry in this part of the world. For me, it is the end of a ticketing journey which has lasted over 25 years”.
