TORONTO (June 16, 2015) – To celebrate the start of the summer concert season, Live Nation Canada and SHOP.CA have joined forces to give concert goers up to $100 in bonus shopping value at SHOP.CA and the chance to win concert tickets for Live Nation shows this summer. Throughout the summer, fans can expect to see SHOP.CA activation staff at various Live Nation concerts in Toronto.
The team at SHOP.CA is bringing this opportunity to life because of its desire to share the inspiring finds on the site with music lovers of all ages and stages in life. “Passionate and engaged concert goers deserve to find unique and inspired products like those on our site – from sun glasses to fashion, accessories, musical instruments and much more. Providing Live Nation’s customers with a free shopping bonus and access to more concerts, is a perfect fit for us,” said James Haggarty, CEO of SHOP.CA. “As a growing Canadian brand, we are pleased that a world-renowned brand like Live Nation Canada partnered with Canada’s first multi-merchant on-line marketplace to reward their customers with e-commerce and more concerts.”
Live Nation Canada is the market leader in Canadian live entertainment, generating approximately $180 million in annual sales for the company and producing more than 1,100 concerts annually for Canadian and international artists. Its commitment to bringing the best in live music to music lovers is underpinned by making the total concert experience the best one possible. This opportunity with SHOP.CA hopes to further amplify this.
“Becoming more relevant in the online shopping space is a great way to bring Canadian music lovers more value for their entertainment dollar,” said Riley O’Connor, chairman of Live Nation Canada. “We are confident this is just the beginning of many ideas and opportunities that the two organizations will achieve together.”
SHOP.CA has quickly grown to be a top 10 e-commerce destination in Canada with innovative partnerships, like with Live Nation, and by providing a unique Canadian experience that combines an outstanding selection of products, free shipping and returns, and an exceptional Canadian customer service team.
