Walmart, Ticketmaster team up

Posted By on Thu, Aug 4, 2011 at 11:25 AM

In what The Onion's A.V. Club calls a "partnership made in corporate hell," Walmart and Ticketmaster have made a deal to sell concert tickets in Walmart kiosks. This wonderful convenience fee-laden convenience hasn't hit Arkansas just yet. Kiosks will only show up in stores in the northeast, for now. From the A.V. Club item:

"By integrating ticketing into Walmart stores, we are able to offer fans this very convenient way to learn about upcoming events, purchase and take home tickets without leaving their neighborhood," Nathan Hubbard, CEO of Ticketmaster, bloodlessly read from a fire-hot parchment handed to him by Satan.
