AOL MUSIC is launching TOUR TRACKER, a free Web service presented by AMERICAN EXPRESS that lets music fans track their favorite artists and bands on tour. The site includes special incentive to buy tickets, including discounts for AMERICAN EXPRESS card members.
The newly launched site, accessible from the AOL MUSIC main page, provides fans with a single online destination to stay updated on band or artists tours and to discuss everything from set lists to favorite show moments to places to meet afterwards. The site also provides music industry executives a useful tool to monitor interest in a particular artist or tour beyond ticket sales.
"We're always looking to find new and innovative ways to help music fans stay current on their favorite artists and bands," AOL MUSIC VP BILL CRANDALL said. "TOUR TRACKER provides music fans an ongoing outlet to follow and discuss an artist throughout a tour or simply find comprehensive listings for which artists -- mainstream or indie -- are playing in one’s hometown on any given night."
