Songkick Tour Dates Boost Universal Music’s New Artist Pages
Songkick Concerts information is now on Universal Music’s new Umusic artist site. With a roster like Universals’, we think this is worth a little shout out. This nifty integration really is good news for both fans and artists.
For artists, the new individual pages bring together the best of the web in one place. Easily searchable, they weave together content and comment from Songkick, Soundcloud, Twitter, Deezer, iTunes and Vevo and more.
For fans, having Songkick’s touring information on Universal’s artists pages takes us a step closer to bringing Songkick’s giant concert database to all the places you listen to music online. While you’re checking out your favorite artists’ videos and recent Tweets on their Universal page, you can see where they are playing near you and click through to quickly find the best ticket offer.
On an individual artist’s page, fans can see live performance videos, full discographies and a photo gallery. The pages link to additional editorial content from the BBC and The Guardian as well as a number of sites to buy music directly. There’s a recommendation engine that refers similar artists too and links out to Last.fm and MusicBrainz. You can read more on Universal Music’s blog here.
