Ticketmaster Online-City Search, Inc. said Tuesday it had bought privately-held TicketWeb Inc. in an all-stock deal valued at $35.2 million, expanding CitySearch's move into ticketing for local events.

Berkeley, CA-based TicketWeb becomes a wholly owned subsidiary of Ticketmaster, which is majority-owned by USA Networks Inc.

Earlier this year, CitySearch kicked-off its entry into ticketing for small and medium facilities with its acquisition of museum and cultural events ticketer 2b Technologies Inc.
