Buying concert tickets can be an utter ball-ache. The more popular the artist, the harder it is to get tickets if you're not quick off the mark. Trying to pick up tickets close to concert-day is a recipe for disaster, and sometimes a sure-fire way to end up paying through way above face-price for tickets.
The solution? Enter the 'smart' smartphone app BandsInTown
Bandsintown (Free to download via via iTunes)
The BandsInTown app provides completely personalized concert experience. With a smart events calendar which is based on the music stored in your iPhone library - this app delivers information which is truly relevant to your musical tastes. No more scanning through endless listings of bands or artists that don’t interest you at all.
Bandsintown will give you updates on tour dates and even line ups for different venues on your favorite artist’s tour. It’s also possible to sync Bandsintown with your iTunes, last.fm, and Spotify accounts making it a very user friendly app.
Popular concert Tickets site BoxOfficeHero has announced plans to launch a concert-tickets app too, as well as an API for programmers to create their own event-based apps in mid 2013.
