“Well, the coolest thihng I’ve done lately, besides my recent trip, is I’m part of a major corporation called AnyTickets.com. I’m the lead adviser of Business Development,” Rodman said in a statement. “These guys are a leader in event ticket sales, they invest in major events worldwide; Super Bowl, NBA, Final Four, every concert on the planet, Hamilton, you name it man – it’s a perfect fit for me, because I love sports and I love music.”
AnyTickets.com partner Marcus Stern said, “Dennis knows everybody from athletes to movie stars to (obviously) politicians and heads of state. That’s perfect because he will be handling the premium ‘once in a lifetime’ experiences for the company.”
