LIVE NATION DONATES 1M+ TIX FOR VETS

Live Nation has announced today (3/5) it has donated 1m+ tickets to veterans since launching its partnership with the Veteran Tickets Foundation, aka Vet Tix. As the top donor to the 2008 founded Vet Tix, Live Nation has gifted $75m+ in tickets since 2014, helping the nonprofit to continue providing free tickets to currently serving military and all vets. Last year, Ticketmaster created custom ticketing software to improve the nonprofit’s platform, simplifying the ticket donation process for artists, venues, theatres and clubs while making it easier for vets to see ticket availability in real time.

Live Nation’s CEO and President Michael Rapino says, "We're honored to have helped over one million service members and their families create life-long memories together at our concerts and events.” Vet Tix CEO and founder Mike Focareto adds, “[Their] support and passion for the Vet Tix mission has been vital to our success, their support also assists veterans, service members and first responders in coping with their post-traumatic stress challenges which leads to positive experiences by attending concerts with family and friends. We can’t thank them enough."

Live Nation’s commitment to supporting vets also extends to Got Your 6, the veterans’ hiring organization it partnered with in 2017, as well as the recently launched Hero Nation, an internal resource program for vet employees.
