Live Nation Liability Waiver

You know those terms of use statements you agree to when you buy concert tickets online?  They could really cost you.  I’m Amy E. Feldman.

In the wake of the tragedy at Astroworld Fest in which people died and hundreds were injured at the Travis Scott concert, million dollar lawsuits have already begun to pile up.  But Live Nation Entertainment, the promoter of the concert, has done its best to insulate itself from liability.

When you purchase tickets online, you almost always have to agree to the terms of use on the website, which no one ever reads.  Live Nation’s Terms of Use read: You voluntarily assume all risks and danger incidental to the event for which your ticket is issued, and you waive any claims for personal injury or death against us.  Those types of liability waivers are generally considered enforceable so the injured may have trouble collecting any money from Live Nation.  It’s a good lesson: before you go to a concert, educate yourself about the safety of the venue and read those terms so you know what rights you’re waiving, and then decide if it’s worth it.
