Live Nation Doesn’t Want My Money!

Live Nation launched an affiliate program through Commission Junction, but they’re not letting many people join their program.. I’ve been TRYING to get approved for the past 3 weeks, with no response. I finally e-mailed their affiliate manager, who grilled me like you wouldn’t believe. After jumping through hoop after hoop, they finally responded with this generic crap:

We currently are not working with ticket brokers or sites that are affiliated with ticket brokers, ticket presale codes, etc. If that policy changes in the future, we will reconsider your application.

Umm.. What?! I’m a huge affiliate in the ticketing scene, and I’ve made your #1 competitor $160K in the past 10 months. Why would you shut me out?? Some of the sites in my CJ profile have ads from other ticket brokers (affiliate commission is good, but guaranteed up-front money is always appreciated), and I guess that got their panties in a bunch.

So bizarre.. I’ve NEVER had this much trouble getting acceptance into a program before. Ridiculous..
