OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pandora (NYSE:P), the go-to music source for fans and artists, today announced the simplest way to discover live music with hyper-personalized concert notifications for Ticketfly events. You no longer have to spend your own time trying to figure out when your favorite bands are coming to town, because now Pandora will do all that work for you. Just sit back and tune in to your favorite stations and notifications will be sent whenever an artist you love has a show nearby.
“Pandora is redefining the music experience, and that includes live events,” said Tim Westergren, founder and chief executive officer of Pandora. “There’s nothing like the magic of a live show, and there’s nothing worse than missing your favorite band because you didn’t know they were in town. Pandora and Ticketfly are solving that with personalized and effortless access to live, local events.”
With these new features, you’ll receive:
- Concert recommendations just for you: The Music Genome Project helped you discover your favorite artists, now we’ll help you discover live events based on your listening profile.
- Effortless show reminders: When a show is announced, you can easily set a reminder to buy tickets the moment they go on sale, so you won’t miss out.
- Easy access to tickets: One tap will send you straight to the ticket purchase page.
When shows are announced or tickets go on sale, you’ll get notified via push notifications on your phone and feed alerts in your Pandora app. We’ll also send you a personalized concert digest email on a regular basis, with a list of shows we know you'll want to check out. For you hardcore fans out there, keep an eye out for some special offers in those emails.
