Live Nation said Thursday its Ticketmaster unit has acquired Eventjoy for an undisclosed sum, and Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino touted the purchase at an investor conference in New York, where he also said more acquisitions are likely.
"On a global basis, there's obviously companies still out there that are in our space — ticketing and concerts on a global basis. We'd love to consolidate and continue to grow," Rapino said Thursday at the Goldman Sachs 23rd Annual Communacopia Conference.
He added, though, that he's not looking for anything overly dramatic. "There's no AOL-Time Warner deals here. We don't need to do anything outside of our core lane to grow our business."
