Two seasons ago, when the Los Angeles Kings raised ticket prices by an average of 7.5 percent, even though they had given loyal fans nothing in terms of success on the ice, I wrote in an op-ed piece:
“The Los Angeles Kings and the Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), headed by Philip Anschutz and Tim Leiweke, the entertainment and real estate conglomerate that owns the Kings, sure have a lot of nerve.”
Well, AEG and the Kings apparently have more nerve than I thought.
Rich Hammond reported on May 1 that the Kings will once again raise ticket prices, claiming poverty. You can read about it here:
In other news, the Kings also announced that they will be hosting a Draft Party for their season ticket holders on Friday, June 20 at LA Live, across from Staples Center. Details here…Kings To Host Draft Party.
