TicketNetwork.com Provides Sunny Forecast for Cirque Du Soleil Fans

Secondary Seller Offers Lowest Prices on Cirque Shows

VERNON, CT--(Marketwire - August 12, 2008) - TicketNetwork.com, the leading source for the ticket industry's most comprehensive inventory, announced today its prices for Cirque du Soleil shows worldwide fare extremely low compared to the competition.

According to Cirque du Soleil's Web site, the company was founded in Canada in the 1980s by Guy Laliberté. It has since grown into an operation that includes 18 unique productions around the globe. Some shows, such as "KOOZÅ" and "Varekei" tour the continents; while others, such as "La Nouba" and "Zumanity," have resident homes.

Its broad appeal however creates a high demand for tickets, which the secondary market tries to meet. "Prices in our industry are governed by demand," said TicketNetwork CEO Don Vaccaro. "Saving up to $90.00 on a single ticket can determine whether a family can afford to see a show or not," Vaccaro further said.

TicketNetwork aims to provide customers with Cirque du Soleil tickets at competitive prices. As is the case in most other industries, comparison shopping is crucial in secondary ticketing. The price samples below outline the differences between companies:
