Ticketmaster Online Buys Ticketmaster

from the the-other-way-around dept

I thought we were through with the days of crazy dot coms buying successful brick-and-mortar to support their silly business ideas with actual cash earning power. Instead, we were seeing all these reports of brick-and-mortar companies launching online businesses which they could support. Now, comes the news that Ticketmaster Online is buying their offline namesake, Ticketmaster. To be totally honest, I’m surprised this didn’t happen much earlier. There’s really no reason I can think of that these should be seperate companies.
