House of Blues Dallas opened in 2007 in the historic White Swan Building at the crossroads of Dallas’ West End and the newly established Victory Park development. It hosts contemporary concerts that include some of the hottest acts currently on tour.
The House of Blues Dallas building dates back to the 1920′s when it housed a White Swan Coffee processing plant. Home to unique pieces of art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s “A Dream Come True” and S. Guion’s painting of Robert Johnson, this unique and history–rich building continues to celebrate and showcase art and music. In keeping with tradition, the House of Blues Dallas displays the “Crazy Quilt” and keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi underneath its stage.
The first House of Blues opened its doors on November 26, 1992 in the Harvard Square commercial district and retail area of Cambridge, Massachusetts. The company was originally financed by Dan Aykroyd, Aerosmith, Paul Shaffer, River Phoenix, James Belushi and Harvard University among others. This original location has since closed. However, the hands-in-concrete driveway where members of the Blues Brothers and others left their mark, still remains.
Dan Aykroyd and James Belushi remain closely associated with the brand and are present for most openings, most recently attending and performing at the Grand Opening Celebrations of both the Houston and the Boston Houses of Blues.
On July 5, 2006, Live Nation, the largest live entertainment company, acquired House of Blues. As a division of Live Nation, the company currently operates 12 clubs throughout North America with its location in Atlantic City being franchised. Nine of these locations also feature the VIP membership club, Foundation Room.

About Ticket Brokering
The ticket brokering business gets a bad rap from many people in that most believe that it is a business with no product being offered to customers but simply inflating the price of event tickets. Many believe that the ticket broker simply hoards up available tickets to different events and then automatically resells them to the public with no risk to themselves. This is far from the case.
A ticket broker will purchase tickets in advance to a sporting event or concert with the “HOPE” that they will be able to sell at a profit. In practice this doesn’t always work out favorably. Many times a ticket broker will purchase these tickets in advance and either sell at a loss just to get some of their money back or at worse be stuck with the tickets that go unsold. Many a ticket broker looks at his inventory Monday morning with a stack of useless, expired tickets from the weekend.
The Ticket Broker thus must buy tickets he knows he can sell at a profit in order to continue in this business. There is no sure thing in the ticket broker business. As in any speculative endeavor whether it be real estate, the stock market, gold coins or ticket brokering the key is buy low and sell high. Now how does one do this?
The only way to do this is with experience and some luck. The ticket broker to be successful must devote a lot of time and effort to his business and he must have the wherewithal to weather some lean times and mistakes in buying tickets. If you only have a bankroll of a couple hundred dollars and you make one mistake in a ticket purchase you can be out of the business quickly.
Finding good seats to sold out events is a good start. Scouring eBay or Craig’s list for fan’s excess tickets they would not use is a good means to find tickets for resell. It is key to have the exposure for your business in order to resell any tickets you do have. The Ticket Broker to be successful is usually the result of word of mouth and referrals. Treating your customers right as in any business leads to success.
The Ticket Broker serves a useful purpose for the sporting and concert industries. He allows fans to easily purchase tickets to an event and he serves as a method for fans that have bought tickets but cannot use them to unload them easily.
Also remember if you find yourself wanting to get some tickets to a sold out event or if you are looking to unload your excess tickets you should use a reputable source such as a ticket broker that is a member of the Better Business Bureau, Member of the Better Ticketing Association or The National Association of Ticket Brokers.
