KIEL CENTER REACHES DEAL WITH TICKETS NOW
Published April 7, 1995
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).
