Groupon, Live Nation form online-ticket deal site

   NEW YORK (AP) -- Concert promoter Live Nation Entertainment Inc. and online deal site Groupon are forming a venture to develop an online ticketing deal Web site called GrouponLive.

   Financial terms were undisclosed. The site is expected to go live ahead of the summer concert season.
   Groupon, a rapidly growing service based in Chicago that offers hundreds of daily discounts in 500 markets, and Los Angeles-based Live Nation, which acquired Ticketmaster last year, say the site will offer deals on tickets to concerts, sports, theater, arts and other live events.
   Led by Groupon, daily-deal ticket sites have proliferated over the past year.
