Live Nation will acquire concert promoter Spaceland Presents and its L.A. music venues, the Echo + Echoplex and The Regent.  https://lat.ms/2w6vif0 

The acquisition is the latest in a string of deals that Live Nation has made with Southern California music venues in the past year as the industry continues to consolidate.  http://lat.ms/2w6vif0 

The deal underscores the growing concentration in the venue business. Independent concert promoters have struggled to compete against large concert promoters like Live Nation.  http://lat.ms/2w6vif0
