AEG’s AXS ticketing and independent concert promoter JAM Productions (JAM) have entered into an exclusive long-term agreement to bring an enhanced ticketing experience to Midwest concertgoers.

Jam will begin rolling out an AXS mobile-first solution at Chicago’s Riviera Theatre, The Vic and Park West starting in late 2020. The agreement includes AXS's line of services, including premium reserved ticketing functionality and 3D seat maps.

“As an independent concert promoter and venue operator, we look for every opportunity to compete more effectively. When we evaluated our options, it was clear that only AXS could give us all the tools we need to improve the fan experience and drive incremental revenue, along with better functionality, to manage our business. We are excited to partner with them,” said Jerry Mickelson, CEO of JAM.

JAM will also have access to dynamic pricing technology, membership capabilities, real-time reporting and marketing tools to personalize the overall fan experience from discovery to purchase.

Dean DeWulf, SVP Music for AXS, added, “We are incredibly proud to partner with Jerry and his team at JAM to provide a premium ticketing solution and white-glove service for concerts and events at his iconic venues.”
