Ticketmaster Turns Tickets Pink For October's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In support of the NFL's "A Crucial Catch" breast cancer awareness campaign, Ticketmaster, a Live Nation Entertainment company (NYSE: LYV), announced today that all Ticketmaster tickets for the month of October will be pink to help raise awareness for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Additionally, a portion of every NFL ticket sold on Ticketmaster and on NFL Ticket Exchange, the official ticket resale marketplace of the NFL, in October will go toward the American Cancer Society's fight against breast cancer.

"Breast cancer affects so many of our families, which is why we are proud to team up with the NFL to support the American Cancer Society and raise funds for breast cancer research, treatment and education," said Nathan Hubbard, CEO of Ticketmaster. "This is the first time in Ticketmaster's more than 35-year history we are changing the color of the Ticketmaster ticket and we hope the millions of pink Ticketmaster tickets will help raise breast cancer awareness. With a portion of NFL tickets sold during October going directly to support breast cancer programs at the American Cancer Society, every fan of live entertainment will be doing their part to help beat breast cancer."

In addition to the donations made through a portion of tickets sales in October, Ticketmaster will also be raising funds through the auction of official pink NFL merchandise signed by Hall of Fame Quarterback Troy Aikman, who is serving as the spokesman for NFL Ticket Exchange powered by Ticketmaster. As part of the NFL's "A Crucial Catch" breast cancer awareness campaign, Mr. Aikman has autographed special commemorative NFL merchandise that will be auctioned for charity on NFL Auction ( www.nfl.com/auction).

"The American Cancer Society continues fighting for every birthday threatened by breast cancer in every community," said Roshini George, National Vice President of Health Promotions for the American Cancer Society. "Through the generous support of Ticketmaster and the NFL, we look forward to continuing to make important strides in the fight against breast cancer."
