LOS ANGELES and NEW YORK, Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --For fans of live
entertainment nothing beats the in-person experience, whether it is the
unforgettable action on the field or the performance on the stage. To help
fans experience the world of live entertainment like never before,
Ticketmaster, a division of Live Nation Entertainment (NYSE: LYV), has
partnered with sports broadcaster Erin Andrews to create the "Voice of the
Fan" interactive program.
"We all see what happens on stage and on the field, but through Ticketmaster's
'Voice of the Fan' initiative, our goal will be to provide fans of live
entertainment with a sneak peek at some of the stories and personalities not
often seen," said Erin Andrews. "Like me, Ticketmaster is committed to
bringing fans real, authentic experiences, which is why I'm looking forward to
sharing this program with the true fans of live entertainment."
As part of the year-long initiative, Andrews will serve as the host of the
"Voice of the Fan" video series, featuring a number of lively interviews with
well-known personalities in the world of sports and music as well as their
fans. The videos will provide insight into Ticketmaster's continuing efforts
to create a better, safer, resale experience for fans, including
Ticketmaster's beta product, TM+. TM+ is a technology enhancement to
Ticketmaster that offers fans a safe, convenient place to see all of their
ticket options, both primary and resale.
Additionally, Andrews will host a select number of live charity and fan
experience events and will also serve as the fan's ambassador online and in
social media on topics related to the evolving live-event ticketing
"Nothing comes close to the excitement of live entertainment, whether it's
watching your local sports team in action or seeing your favorite band perform
on stage. Behind the bright lights and off the field, however, there is so
much more to experience and thanks to Erin's unique background as a broadcast
reporter and TV personality, we have the ideal guide to help fans discover the
stories behind the action," said Jared Smith, president, Ticketmaster North
America. "We are tremendously excited about the evolution in event ticketing
that Ticketmaster is leading. As the premier ticketing provider for live
entertainment and professional sports league partners, Ticketmaster delivers
the most amazing experiences possible. 'Voice of the Fan' is just one more way
we hope to forever change the way that fans experience live events."
