Walmart announced yesterday that it has teamed up with Ticketmaster to sell event tickets in 45 of its stores.

The touch screen kiosks will be available at 26 New Jersey stores, 18 New York stores and one store in Pennsylvania.

Ticketmaster, a division of Live Nation Entertainment, sells tickets for family entertainment, concerts and sporting events.

"By integrating ticketing into Walmart stores, we are able to offer fans this very convenient way to learn about upcoming events, purchase and take home tickets without leaving their neighborhood," said Nathan Hubbard, CEO of Ticketmaster. -[]

Hopefully the stores add extra security the next time Justin Bieber tickets go on sale.
