Klobuchar Talks MN Music, Concerts in Senate Hearing on Ticket Competition


U-S Senator Amy Klobuchar expects more Justice Department investigations of Ticketmaster/Live Nation’s alleged monopoly on the concert industry.  Klobuchar chaired a hearing on the lack of competition in ticketing and said she worked part time on weekends to pay for concerts:

“I love music.  So, I grew up in the suburbs, in high school I remember loading Johnny Royer’s van with my friends and going off to see Led Zeppelin and the Cars and Aerosmith.”

The Minnesota Democrat says kids these days cannot afford tickets to major concerts.  Live Nation’s president told senators they do not set the ticket prices or service fees.
