Concert & Ticket Info Hub – Livekick

9 June, 2009 at 6:47 pm Leave a comment

I found this press release interesting today.

Particularly relevant for the future of any b2c Web 2.0 initiatives:

  • personalized concert calendar which you can easily export to your Outlook or iCal calendars
  • Widget, downloadable to a PC or a Mac scans the fan’s computer daily for new music files and adds new artists you listen to on your computer to your Livekick account

Concert & Ticket Info Hub Livekick Leaves Beta

Concert recommendation and ticket search engine Livekick jumps out of beta today. The free site helps fans discover local live concerts and then helps them get the best deal on tickets. The Livekick search engine includes 75,000 U,S. concerts of 20,000 artists performing in almost 40,000 venues.

Based on profile and location, Livekick sends updates on tours including presales and promos like today’s Live Nation announcement. Updates are delivered online, via email, Twitter or personal RSS feed. Once fans find a concert, Livekick searches for the best available tickets online. Their search engine continuously scans direct and reseller ticket sites including TicketMaster, LiveNation, StubHub, Tickets.com, TicketWeb, TicketCity, TicketsNow, eBay, and MySpace Music.

Fans can add their favorite artists or import them from iTunes, their computer, MySpace, Last.fm, Pandora, iLike, blip.fm or Rhapsody. Livekick then creates a musical profile and automatically imports new artists from your music services as you listen to new music online.

Additional Livekick features:
