LIVE NATION GIVING BACK TO VETERANS

Live Nation, which has donated more than 75k tickets to the Veteran Tickets Foundation, is launching a nation-wide job fair to attract and hire veterans across its various divisions, and introducing a mentorship program at the company.

Working with veteran associations throughout the country, Live Nation will host veteran job fairs in 10 major markets, among them Los Angeles, Calif., New York, Philadelphia and Atlanta. For the mentoring program, newly hired veterans will be partnered a mentor to help them with their transition into a civilian role.

Information on the job fairs will be announced soon.

Live Nation is the top donor date to the Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix), which, since 2008, has provided more than 2m free tickets to 450k service members, veterans and their families.

“Welcoming our troops and veterans to Live Nation’s concerts is the least we can do to show our gratitude for their service and sacrifices,” said Michael Rapino, President and CEO, Live Nation Entertainment. “Freedom of speech and artistic expression that we enjoy wouldn’t be possible without the dedication and bravery of our veterans.”

In addition to strengthening family bonds and building memories, Vet Tix notes that providing live entertainment to service members and veterans can reduce stress and encourage them to stay engaged with local communities and American life.

“Every single ticket donated to Vet Tix makes a real difference in the lives of our country’s heroes, which makes a partner like Live Nation, who delivers an unmatched scale and variety of tickets, invaluable,” said Mike Focareto, CEO of Vet Tix.
