Market Potential
What is Live Nation
Competitive Advantage
SWOT Analysis
Concert Promotion
Venue Operation
- Exclusivity agreements at most major venues around the country
- Lack of strong governmental regulation/tight connections in D.C.
- Controls artists' tours from coast to coast
- Continuous acquisitions solidifies the company position in the industry
- many barriers to entry

- with the decline of record sales, artists are more and more compelled to give live performances to increase revenue

- growing popularity of festivals, especially related to EDM in the United States (Insomniac)
- Subsidiary companies complement each other perfectly

- Exclusivity rights at concert venues

- Concentration and horizontal integration growth strategies

- Strong brand identification
- bad economy

- increasing number of start ups/third party options competing

- rapidly changing public tastes

- unanimous negative attitudes towards the company by artists, venues, and consumers
- Net losses for the past eight years

- High long-term Debt

- High Interest Expenses
Although there is a current competitive advantage, the long term debt is too much to overcome
We would NOT invest in Live Nation Entertainment.
