“In 2011, concert ticket prices decreased at a faster rate than any other category on StubHub, and we sold a record number of concert tickets. This illustrates the value of our marketplace – as more tickets enter the marketplace, prices decrease and more fans are able to purchase tickets,” said Chuck La Vallee, StubHub’s head of music business development. “With a number of top artists set to kick off tours, including Black Sabbath, Dave Matthews Band, Kenny Chesney, and Madonna, we anticipate 2012 to be another big year as fans look to us for the best selection of tickets and the flexibility to buy the tickets they want, when they want.”
