The road to 1 million tickets....

1 million

June has been BIG for The one millionth ticket was sold through our online marketplace this month! The landmark ticket was purchased by a customer in Ohio for an upcoming Jackson Browne concert.

One million tickets is a lot — a lot of live entertainment fans (like you!) searching for must-have tickets, and a lot of other people (from other fans to independent ticket brokers) looking to sell their extra or unwanted tickets. certainly has come a long way since its launch in 2007. For instance...

Did you know...?

  • The first ticket sold through was for a Stevie Wonder concert.

  • Traffic on has grown more than 600% since 2007.

  • Our site now displays tickets for more than 75,000 events worldwide.

  • We've served more than 380,000 customers from 113 countries and territories.

As much as some things have changed, other things — such as each year's most in-demand tickets — have stayed fairly consistent. Since 2007, the top-selling performers on the marketplace have been time-tested entertainment legends and the latest up-and-coming teen phenomenons.
