I Object!

A group of independent promoters followed Jack Orbin’s lead recently by filing objections to the Live Nation/Ticketmaster merger with the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.

It’s My Party, Seth Hurwitz, Frank Productions, Sue McLean & Associates, and Metropolitan Talent joined the National Consumers League in filing opposition comments under the Tunney Act.

The objections echo arguments made in a previous filing by Orbin, claiming the U.S. Justice Department’s remedies are insufficient to promote competition and prevent retaliation against non-Ticketmaster venues, requiring, at minimum, further remedial relief.
