About Us

What Does Goldstar Do?

We help people get out more to live entertainment, like theater, comedy, sports, music, performing arts and even things like wine tastings, sushi making classes and rodeos.

When you sign up for Goldstar, which is free and easy to do, we bring you:

Fun ideas.
Our site and emails are filled with fun things to do, and the experience is customized to you using sophisticated technology.
Half-price tickets.
We work with more than 4,000 venues and producers across the country, and offer the world's largest selection of half price tickets.
Member reviews.
We're one of the world's largest online sources of live entertainment user reviews.
Everything else you need for a great night out.
Get everything from a venue map to tips on how to dress, where to eat and where to park.

How Do We Do That?

Unlike so many ticket sellers online, we're not brokers. We work directly with our 4,000 venue partners to connect them with our huge and growing Goldstar audience. Not every show sells out, so instead of letting seats go empty, venues list them with us to sell to our members.

Here's why our venues like us so much:

  • We've got young, smart, active members looking for things to do.
  • We sell tickets that may have otherwise gone unsold.
  • We're easy to work with, and we're constantly investing time and money in improving our service.

Who Are We?

The three founders, Jim, Rich and Robert, have spent the last decade and beyond in the Internet and e-commerce business, and are backed by degrees from UCLA, Stanford and Harvard.

The rest of the Goldstar team is equally impressive, and consists of venue relations experts who know live entertainment like the back of their hands, a tech team that just put together one of the biggest Ruby on Rails implementations in the live entertainment business, lightning-fast customer service specialists, top-notch copywriters, and a marketing team that keeps Goldstar in the news.
