That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Live Nation Entertainment's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.65. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Live Nation Entertainment's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 13.8 million Live Nation Entertainment shares held short by investors – that's known as Live Nation Entertainment's "short interest". This figure is 13.2% down from 15.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Live Nation Entertainment shares can be evaluated.
Live Nation Entertainment's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Live Nation Entertainment shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Live Nation Entertainment shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). Live Nation Entertainment's SIR currently stands at 6.35. In other words for every 100,000 Live Nation Entertainment shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6350 shares are currently held short.
However Live Nation Entertainment's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Live Nation Entertainment shares, or, against the total number of tradable Live Nation Entertainment shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Live Nation Entertainment's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Live Nation Entertainment shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0989% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Live Nation Entertainment shares, roughly 99 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Live Nation Entertainment.
