Live Nation appears to have had no issues weathering recent bad news related to ticket scalping at their Ticketmaster subsidiary. Revelations that the firm worked with ticket scalpers to ensure that they would get their cut of profits served to further inflame concert goers, but did little to arrest the rising share price over the past months.

They also continue to shrug off complaints of monopoly behaviour at concert venues, building or buying additional venues in many areas as well as finding new ways to make more money off of concert attendees once they are in those venues.

As far as good news goes, the firm is about to open a wildly-anticipated venue known as “the Met” in Philadelphia and their latest foray into film with the remake of “A Star is Born” starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga is expected to garner numerous Oscar nominations.

In addition, the latest earnings results were impressive. Q3 results were the best ever for the company, with revenue up more than 10%. All divisions of the firm–concerts, sponsorships, and ticketing–were similarly strong. The company expects to sell more than 90 million concert tickets for the year, and that will also be a record.
