Listening to your favorite acts on Spotify or Google Play Music is one thing, but there is nothing like being there and hearing them live. The buzz of the crowd, the booming of the speakers and the general atmosphere. If you are a regular gig-goer then it can be hard to keep up to date with all of the bands and acts that are currently playing. That said, there are a number of Android apps now available and designed to make it easier to buy tickets, arrange your schedule and generally make sure the only thing you have to do is turn up on time. Here are ten concert and ticket apps that are currently worth checking out.
Starting off the list today is Bandsintown. This is an app which will keep you up to date on all the live music events that are heading your way. You can create a personalized calendar for the events you are interested in and the app will even try to suggest music events that you might be interested in, based on your preferences.
Songkick is another app which looks to make sure you are kept informed on your favorite artist’s touring schedule. Once the app is aware of the artists you are interested in, it will look to notify you when dates near you are announced or tickets become available. This app also seems to be making it easier for you to import your preferences over with support for Facebook, Spotify and Google Play Music included.
Ticketmaster Event Tickets
For anyone who does frequently book tickets for events, then Ticketmaster will need little introduction. This is a very established ticket purchasing service and this is their event tickets app. As such, you will find access to tickets to all upcoming events, both music-based and otherwise.
Live Nation At The Concert
Another option worth checking out is Live Nation At The Concert. Once again, this app will let you purchase tickets and keep you informed on all your favorite acts. However, it also comes with some additional features too, like support for Uber so you can book a car to get you to and from the event, or order food and drink while you are there.

Goldstar 50% Off Event Tickets
Another app which looks to offer tickets at the best prices possible is Goldstar. So if you are someone who is looking for tickets but a great deal as well, then this might be an option worth checking out. You can also set up a hit list of acts you are interested in and then receive notifications when tickets at cheaper prices become available.

This app also lets you buy tickets in-app and will keep you informed on the availability of tickets to your favorite acts or festivals in the U.S., UK or Canada.
Vibe tickets is yet another app where you can find tickets to live music events, however, it is also an app where you can sell your tickets too. This is a sort of marketplace app which focuses on live music events and lets you sync up with others who are trying to sell their tickets or looking to buy. Nice social element added to this one for those looking for a more social-focused app.
LiveList -Live Stream Concerts
While most of the apps on the list are designed to help you get to the event, closing out the list today is LiveList. This is an app which looks to give you the concert experience without actually leaving home. If your act is planning on live streaming a concert then this is the app which will help you stay in the loop about how and where to live stream the event. Not to mention, it has a ton of older concert footage available for you to check out while waiting for your next big event.
