U.S. Dept. of Justice Okays Ticketmaster/Live Nation Merger


Mega companies Ticketmaster and Live Nation are all set for their impending merger at least, as far as the U.S. Dept. of Justice is concerned. Business Insider reports (via The Daily Swarm) that the department gave the merger the long-awaited go-ahead earlier today.

Some loose ends still remain. Although the U.K., Norway and Turkey have already given their approval, Canada remains reluctant to join in. But despite the latter’s hesitancy, CNBC reporter David Faber says the merger is expected to go through immediately.
