Item 8.01 Other Events.

On May 19, 2014, Live Nation Entertainment, Inc. (the “Company”) announced that it plans to make private offerings of $250 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2019 (the “Convertible Notes”) and $250 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2022 (the “Senior Notes”). In connection with the Convertible Notes offering, the Company expects to grant the initial purchasers a 30-day option to purchase an additional $25 million aggregate principal amount of such Convertible Notes to cover over-allotments, if any.

The Company expects to use the net proceeds from these offerings to redeem, in the near future, all of its outstanding 2.875% Convertible Senior Notes due 2027, to pay related fees and expenses, to reinvest in the company’s core business and for general corporate purposes, including potential acquisitions. A copy of the press release is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

Each of the Convertible Notes and Senior Notes will be offered through a private placement and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or any state securities laws. As a result, the Convertible Notes, Senior Notes and common stock issuable upon conversion of the Convertible Notes may not be offered or sold in the United States or to any U.S. persons except pursuant to an applicable exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act. Accordingly, the Convertible Notes and Senior Notes will be offered within the United States only to “qualified institutional buyers” under Rule 144A of the Securities Act or, outside the United States, to persons other than “U.S. persons”, and the Senior Notes will be offered to certain non-U.S. persons in transactions in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act.
