The new venture, GrouponLive, is already available if you want to use your email to subscribe to deals but deals won't start until the summer.
Live Nation Entertainment, a venture by Live Nation and Ticketmaster, currently promotes 20,000 shows every year.
Says Groupon CEO Andrew Mason:
With unprecedented access to Live Nation's expansive roster of performers and events, GrouponLive will be the destination for exclusive live event deals. We're excited to work with Live Nation to further deliver on our commitment to offer amazing local experiences to our subscribers.
Adds Michael Rapino, President and Chief Executive Officer of Live Nation Entertainment:
GrouponLive represents a new channel to drive value for fans, while helping artists and others to reach ever larger audiences. By adding this channel to our ticketing platform, we will also provide our venue partners with another option for driving ticket sales across a wide range of events. Our success is based on selling tickets and filling seats and GrouponLive gives us another platform to achieve this.
