How can I find out as soon as concert dates are added to a band’s tour, and find out all the musicians and groups that are coming to my area?
The very best way to get fresh ‘n’ hot tour dates is directly from your favorite band or musician’s Facebook page, website (especially if they have an email announcement list) or their Twitter feed. Almost always, that’s where the news will show up first. In many cases, you might also be notified about ticket pre-sales and other special offers for early birds.
If there’s a particular venue in your region and you want to be among the first to know who has been booked in — again, Facebook and Twitter are great places to look.
Still, there are a few good sites (and an app) that will help you keep track of multiple groups or concert venues — for example:
For years, Pollstar has been a reputable source for concert tour dates
AOL’s tourtracker.com site is part of their music hub, and offer their own lists and chars of popular shows and the latest dates added.
The granddaddy of all ticket sales obviously is a great source for information about the shows they have coming up.
Stubhub is a great place to look for tour dates and legal (and guaranteed) ticket resales.
In May 2012, Live Nation launched Concert Calendar, which is a free Facebook app that compiles concert listings from Ticketmaster and more than 70 other ticket agencies.
