Always Know when Your Favorite Band is Town with Concertimatic App

by Tobey Grumet Segal on December 29, 2009

Your favorite band is on tour and you’re psyched to see them live. But what if you forget to check the dates or didn't realize that they're playing in your town? It’s happened to best of us (I’m still kicking myself for missing the NYC tour of Duran Duran—don’t laugh).

Here’s the antidote: a new iPhone/Touch app called Concertimatic ($0.99) will automatically go through the iTunes library on your iPhone and find all the related concert listings in your area.

You’ll need the new 3.0 OS to use it, but once you get it downloaded, Concertimatic will search music sites like Pollstar and Jambase to find upcoming events. You can search by week, by month or for the next two months out, and you’ll be rewarded with a chronological list of concerts. Concertimatic then lets you email a reminder to yourself or your friends, and also provides box office phone listings to make a purchase. A map of the concert events gives you a bird’s eye view of the performance seating and you can get directions to the venue as well.

Unfortunately, Concertimatic does not link with online ticket sellers, such as Ticketmaster. And, two months out may not be enough notice for the most popular performances.

Also, Concertimatic will not sync with your computer's iTunes library. So, if you have additional artists there, you may want to consider iConcertCal ($2.99), which will sync with both your phone and PC/Mac.
