U.S. War Veteran Launches New Website ShowTickets.ws, Offering Affordable Tickets To Popular Events Across The Country

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ShowTickets.ws is a new website that offers visitors the chance to purchase tickets to any major Broadway or other theater show, sporting event, live music concert and even tickets to Las Vegas attractions. The website is the brainchild of Phillip Polite, an Army and Air Force veteran who was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from his tours of duty. Polite invoked his entrepreneurial spirit, knowing that a traditional job would be difficult given this condition. Polite decided to enter the world of online businesses and develop this website to make gaining access to fun events that much easier. Offering tickets through this website seemed perfect for Polite and as he recently said, "I wanted a business model that made sense for me and I wanted to sell something fun."

Polite was first deployed with under the 173rd Airborne Brigade and he was one of the first soldiers on the ground during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Polite brings the same dedication and attention to detail that he learned during his time in the military to his new business, and he has already dedicated himself to making ShowTickets.ws America's first choice for tickets. In fact, to honor his military service, Polite took the extension .ws, which he jokes stands for "War Stripes."

Visitors to the website will find it very customer friendly. The home page features categorized lists of all the major events for which customers can find tickets. Visitors can quickly and easily browse through the available tickets for most major sporting, music and theater events. The site even features handlists of the current top events and this list is updated on a regular basis. One aspect of the site that visitors really like is the simple search feature that lets them search for events by major US city and by date. When a visitor to the site clicks on any one of the categories they are taken to a list of specific events and from there to a page where they can choose their ticket and then purchase.
