CHICAGO, Nov 6 (BestGrowthStock) – Barry Diller, the former
chairman of Live Nation Entertainment (LYV.N: ), sold 2.53
million shares in the company, according to a government

In a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission on Thursday, Live Nation said Diller, the chief
executive of IAC/Interactive Corp (IACI.O: ), still owns 10.4
millions shares of Live Nation.

Diller sold the shares for $9.62 each, making the total
sale worth $24.3 million.

Diller, who became non-executive chairman of the struggling
concert promoter and ticketing company after the February
merger of Live Nation and Ticketmaster Entertainment, stepped
down in September after a brief and controversial stint.

Diller said in a statement in September he had expected his
time as chairman to be short through the transition and
integration of the two companies.

Live Nation this week said it earned 30 cents per share in
the third quarter on revenue of $1.84 billion.
