Walmart, Ticketmaster team up

"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.
