PANDORA is teaming up with TICKETFLY to introduce the "simplest way to discover live music with hyper-personalized concert notifications."
Said PANDORA founder/CEO TIM WESTERGREN: “PANDORA is redefining the music experience, and that includes live events. 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.”
Among the new features:
• Personalized concert recommendations: The MUSIC GENOME PROJECT helps listeners discover live events based on their listening profile.
• Effortless show reminders: When a show is announced, users can set a reminder to buy tickets the moment they go on sale.
• Easy access to tickets: One tap will send users straight to the ticket purchase page.
When shows are announced or tickets go on sale, users get notified via push notifications via phone and feed alerts in the PANDORA app. Personalized concert digest emails will go out on a regular basis.
