(BENTONVILLE, Ark.) -- Walmart announced a deal with Ticketmaster Wednesday that will allow customers to purchase tickets for events through kiosks inside Walmart stores across the country.
Consumers will be able to buy tickets to a variety of Ticketmaster events, including concerts, sports, and theater through a partially self-serve touchscreen kiosk. All purchases will be completed by a Walmart employee.
"By integrating ticketing into Walmart stores, we are able to offer fans this very convenient way to learn about upcoming events, purchase and take home tickets without leaving their neighborhood," said Ticketmaster CEO Nathan Hubbard. "In addition, Ticketmaster will continue to work closely with our clients to create exclusive high value offers for Walmart customers."
As part of the announcement, Ticketmaster is running a promotion through August 15 offering customers discounted four-packs of tickets to concerts Ke$ha, Toby Keith, Maroon 5, and Journey.
