It was already reported earlier this year that Madison Square Garden has begun using facial recognition technology for security reasons. Now, it appears that Ticketmaster and Live Nation may want to use the tech for ticketing too...
Songkick “will bow to pressure from Live Nation and Ticketmaster and complete the shutdown of all ticketing operations,“ its founder said in a statement. Facebook is now also officially scanning Bandsintown for concert listings.
Last year, it was revealed that Ticketmaster was giving away millions of free tickets to compensate customers, after a $400 million class-action lawsuit that dates back to 1999 was settled. Now another huge batch of free tickets are being given away.
Live Nation is selling $20 tickets to several shows for one week only, including Kings of Leon/Deerhunter, Future/Young Thug/A$AP Ferg, Dead & Company, Jean-Michel Jarre, Maxwell, Primus/Clutch, Yes, Deftones and more.
