LOS ANGELES (AP) -- ScoreBig, an Internet startup that sells cut-rate tickets to sporting events and concerts, is trying to get bigger.
The name-your-price discounter is lifting the invitation-only restriction on its website on Monday and is launching an app for iPhones that highlights deals of the day in local markets. The app will work in San Francisco and Los Angeles at first, to be followed by New York.
The Los Angeles-based company launched its website in October 2010 with the goal of helping teams and concert promoters sell some of the 40 percent of tickets that go unsold for most events. It's like Priceline for live events.
The company has high-profile backers including former Facebook Chief Financial Officer Gideon Yu and Shari Redstone, the daughter of billionaire media mogul Sumner Redstone.
