Update On Possible Comcast/Ticketmaster/Live Nation Abomination (With Poll)

After yesterday’s news that Comcast was considering getting in on the already-under-antitrust-scrutiny merger between Ticketmaster and Live Nation, the original article has been updated to be slightly less bad.

The Bloomberg article that we had cited has since been updated to better state rumors that Comcast is considering acquiring some of Ticketmaster’s ticketing and client contracts, not that they were considering merging with Ticketmaster itself. So instead of being forced to buy tickets from Ticketmaster, you might soon be forced to buy tickets from Comcast.
