For your viewing pleasure, we have transcribed an entire seven-part interview with former Ticketmaster Fred Rosen. (CEO of Ticketmaster Group Inc, from 1982 to 1998, during which time he transformed the company into the world’s dominant computerized ticketing service, with revenues of more than $1 billion. Currently, he serves as co-president and co-CEO of Outbox Enterprises, where he oversees marketing, sales and strategic planning).
We encourage you to read it as it answers a lot of commonly asked questions about why Ticketmaster does what they do, including how they release tickets, the company’s rise and success, their relationship with promoters and venues, and more.
We are not affiliated with Ticketmaster, Fred Rosen, or ArtistsHouseMusic who conducted the interview. All credit for this interview goes to ArtistsHouseMusic.org. Their site offers a lot of insight into the business side of music, and as a ticket broker, I’m confident you’ll get a lot of value and insight as they take a look at the inner workings of how money is made in the entertainment industry.
