Update on Live Nation/Ticketmaster merger

Here is an update on the proposed Live Nation/Ticketmaster merger: http://blogs.suntimes.com/derogatis/2009/05/keeping_an_eye_on_live_nation.html.

Live Nation is already charging you more for beer and souveniers and hiding parking fees (even if you don't drive) in the ticket. So if you think the merged company would be consumer friendly, you're delusional. More control will only lead them to raise prices on everything surrounding the price of a show.

Thanks to Live Music Blog for bringing this article to my attention.
