The popular music discovery app Shazam recently added a new suite of concert features. They designed it to make it easier for users to locate and explore upcoming live shows. When users do “Shazam” to one song, they’ll see some concert information and tickets for upcoming shows nearby. They also can explore a page with more tour dates, times and locations of upcoming events related with this artist.
With live music slowly returning at any side of the world, a feature like this could not have come at a better time. It also includes smaller venues and independent organizers, which has been a good thing when it comes to supporting local artists.
“Shazam has a long history of innovation in music discovery and connecting artists and fans. With the re-emergence of live music, we’re excited to give Shazam users access to concerts and bring even more discoverability to artists.”Oliver Schusser, Apple’s Vice President of Apple Music and Beats
