KIEL CENTER REACHES DEAL WITH TICKETS NOW

     The Kiel Center and Tickets Now have signed a "peace
agreement" which calls for the ticket agency to continue as the
official ticket provider for the arena "for a minimum of three
years."  Blues hockey, St. Louis Univ. basketball, concerts and
other shows are all included in the new deal.  The deal comes in
the wake of last year's "threat" by Kiel Center Partners, the
group who owns and operates the arena, and Contemporary
Productions Inc., the region's biggest producer of concerts and
other events, to form their own ticket agency after they were
outbid in their effort to buy Tickets Now.  According to Kiel's
new President and CEO, William Haviluk, "it did not make sense to
start [our] own ticket agency" (Adam Goodman, ST. LOUIS POST-
DISPATCH, 4/7).
