Live Nation Entertainments (based in California, USA) was given the contract to arrange the entertainment events at the London Olympics. They also own Ticketmaster which handled the ticket sales.

Over the last few weeks Live Nation have upset numerous members of the public with draconian rules for attendance at events including BTLive with the banning all home-produced or shop-bought food and water.

A petition about this has almost gone viral:

With regards to the ticketing of the Olympic events and venues professional web-designers have proclaimed it to be the WORST website they have ever seen:

I understand from Wiki and other websites that both Live Nation and Ticketmaster do not actually have squeaky clean reputations with regards to their dealings with artists, venues, and the public.

Has anyone had any good or bad experiences with them?

Good links -- thanks BP.

Have signed the petition and sent the link to friends. Doesn't look like it's gone viral yet, though -- I was the 27th person to sign, so far...
