The two companies will also present special events with promoters, and MySpace users can get special offers, including pre-release tickets and special allocations.

"For MySpace users and music fans, we are providing an easy, efficient and safe means of purchasing tickets, as well as a huge forum of interactive content that music fans are hungry for."
