LOS ANGELES, Aug. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Throughout the Bay Area fans can purchase live event tickets from their local Walmart store.  Using point of sale touch screens located in the electronics departments of forty-four participating Walmart stores, fans throughout the area can browse available tickets for family shows, concerts and sporting events.  Once the desired event is selected by the fan, a Walmart employee helps complete the transaction and immediately prints the tickets.  

"By integrating ticketing into Walmart stores, we are able to offer fans this very convenient way to learn about upcoming events, purchase and take home tickets without leaving their neighborhood," said Nathan Hubbard, CEO of Ticketmaster.  "In addition, Ticketmaster will continue to work closely with our clients to create exclusive high value offers for Walmart customers."
