Amazon Tickets could take on Ticketmaster in possible US expansion


Enlarge (credit: Amazon) If you live in the UK, you’ve had access to Amazon Tickets since 2015. The service is similar to Ticketmaster in that you can purchase tickets to UK-based shows including “The Lion King” and “Wicked” and concerts of artists like Blink-182 and Drake. Now Amazon appears to be looking into expanding the program: the company has a number of job listings for Amazon Tickets positions based in Seattle, Washington on its employment website. “Following our debut in London’s West End with every ticket to every show, we are rapidly expanding our selection across the UK,” one of the job listings states. “As with any growing Amazon business, we are always looking for opportunities to expand into more categories and geographies.” Another Tickets job posting states that Amazon isn’t just looking to offer a wide variety of tickets to shows and concerts but also to “disrupt the entire live entertainment experience, including what happens before, during and after the show.” Most of the job postings harp on the idea that ticket-buying can be a frustrating experience when the prices are too high or if you miss your favorite artist because you didn’t know they were performing in your town. While there are no details on how Amazon wants to fix those problems, it’s clear that the company wants to set itself apart from the Ticketmasters—and possibly the StubHubs and SeatGeeks—of the world by creating a better ticket-buying experience.
