On May 31, 2012 I will be listening to Roger Waters make my ears smile. Alright, that kind of sounds creepy/weird, but I will be listening to The Wall and be beyond overjoyed.
The handy app that helped me to get tickets without standing in the hallway at school at 10 o'clock swearing at a busy signal and end up with no tickets to the sold out show was the Live Nation app.
So I took part in some presale action. They have more presales on the app than on their site, with no password necessary!
You can set alerts so you are told when new presales start, new concerts are announced in your area or when artists you have selected under your favourites announce a show.
As soon as you download the app, it takes the artists from your iPhone, iPad or iPod's music library and puts them in your favourites. You can then take out ones you don't want, or add any that you would like.
When you go to any of your favourite artists, or ones that you search, you can check out their set lists at previous shows. Once you're on a set list you can preview songs and go straight to iTunes to buy them.
You can also post anything from the app straight to Facebook and Twitter.
Another sweet thing, although this is mainly helpful for if you're running late or not going to a concert is you can check out what's going on at the show while it's happening. What time the artist took the stage and a live set list can both be found on the app.
So I bought my tickets and checked out my view right from the app. Sounds like this app is going to be dangerous for my student budget.
