BandsInTown Launches Spotify Tour Dates App

Concert recommendation and notification app BandsInTown has launched a Spotify app. Bandsintown now synchs directly with the songs, albums, and playlists users listen to on Spotify. Competing concert listing service Songkick launched its own Spotify app early last year.

Key Features:

• The app recommends similar artists based on the user’s musical taste and listening trends
• The app creates a local playlist of artists playing live in the user’s location, taking into account the image from http://www.mindofthegeek.comuser’s frequently listened to artists and those recommended by Bandsintown
• When users drag and drop any artist on Spotify into the Bandsintown app, a new pop-up tab appears listing the act’s upcoming tour dates and indicating whether they have any shows in their area
• Other features include the ability to buy tickets directly, status updates indicating whether a user is “Attending” or “Maybe” attending, email alerts notifying users of upcoming concerts in the area, and a personalized page of upcoming concerts that allows fans to click on the artist to play their most popular songs

Bandsintown services over 115K artists and has a monthly reach of 20 million fans.
