The Ticketmaster-Live Nation merger was expected to change the touring industry as we know it, but what actually has changed? This panel discusses the effects of the merger on venue owners, bookers and bands. If approached effectively this merger could benefit the little guys out there. Then again, they might be crushed by the larger giant. There might even be ways for a mutually beneficial system out there in which large and small players can coexist. Come see if that is even possible.
