About Ticketmaster Entertainment, LLC

Ticketmaster Entertainment, LLC, a major player in the live event ticketing industry, was founded in 1976 and is based in Beverly Hills, California. The company merged with Live Nation in 2010, creating the global powerhouse Live Nation Entertainment. Ticketmaster offers a platform for venues, artists, and promoters to sell tickets for concerts, sports events, and various other live performances. Despite criticism over service fees and market dominance, Ticketmaster remains a leader in the industry, processing over 500 million ticket transactions annually through its digital and physical fulfillment centers.

What Happened?

On May 31, Live Nation, the parent company of Ticketmaster, disclosed that it had been the victim of a cyber attack compromising user data. This confirmation came following reports that data of 560 million users was being offered for sale on the dark web.

According to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Live Nation reported that on May 20, 2024, they “identified unauthorized activity within a third-party cloud database environment containing company data.” Less than two weeks after the breach, the notorious hacker group ShinyHunters listed the data on the dark web for $500,000. The compromised information includes names, emails, phone numbers, addresses, and credit card details.

In the SEC filing, Live Nation stated it was “working to mitigate risk to our users” and cooperating with law enforcement officials. The company also mentioned that the breach was unlikely to have “a material impact on our overall business operations.”

In addition to the data breach, last month, the U.S. Department of Justice, along with 29 states, filed a comprehensive lawsuit accusing Live Nation and Ticketmaster of monopolizing the live entertainment industry. The government alleges that Live Nation employed tactics—including threats and retaliation—that have allowed the entertainment giant to “suffocate the competition” by controlling nearly every aspect of the industry, from concert promotion to ticketing.
