TicketMaster Acquiring UK Ticket Reseller Get Me In

IAC-owned TicketMaster is acquiring UK-based ticket reseller Get Me In, according to WSJ. The acquisition is the company’s second such purchase this month, as it recently announced a $265 million deal for TicketsNow. TicketMaster’s move into a space dominated by StubHub has raised concerns that TicketMaster, by controlling new and resale tickets, will be able to exert undue power over the market — a charge that’s been leveled at the company in different forms for a long time. Get Me In CEO Andrew Blachman was previously a consultant at Stub Hub. Terms of the purchase were not reported.
