Pandora bails on selling tickets, offloads TicketFly to Eventbrite

It’s not the acquisition many expected, but Pandora just got a $480 million investment from SiriusXM. At the same time, Pandora is selling TicketFly, the ticket-selling service it acquired in 2015, to Eventbrite for $200 million.

For now, it seems like the streaming pioneer’s biggest priority is sorting out its core business and trying to become a legit player in the on-demand subscription market dominated by Spotify. JPT
