The Senate hearing on Tuesday, titled “That’s the Ticket: Promoting Competition and Protecting Consumers in Live Entertainment,” will focus on Ticketmaster as a dominant force in the ticketing industry after the company came under scrutiny for botched sales in recent months.
Senator Amy Klobuchar, Democrat of Minnesota, called the hearing to convene witnesses that include a top Live Nation executive along with some of its competitors in ticketing and concert promotion; experts on antitrust and market competition; and a performing artist.
The Times will provide live video at nytimes.com, accompanied by analysis from reporters, when the hearing, headed by Senator Richard Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, starts at 10 a.m. The hearing will also be carried live on the Senate Judiciary Committee website and C-SPAN.
