CoS teams up with SeatGeek for Concert Ticket Calendar

on September 23, 2010, 4:45pm

We’re excited to announce a brand-new feature, the Consequence of Sound Concert Ticket Calendar.

Basically, SeatGeek has developed an event calendar enabling readers to find out when their favorite artists are playing and find the best tickets to those concerts. Using SeatGeek’s powerful search and aggregation, the Ticket Calendar page displays available tickets from all major secondary markets and provides intelligent forecasting information that helps fans quickly discover the best deals.

In layman’s terms, SeatGeek offers something different than most other ticket brokers…or even Ticketmaster for that matter. So, say you want to go see Gorillaz at Madison Square Garden, but the show is sold out. You were locked out of Ticketmaster’s early morning on-sale and aren’t looking to fork over $150 on Craigslist. Well, you’ll go to SeatGeek and search for “Gorillaz”. All the band’s respective upcoming events will be listed, and upon clicking on the one for Madison Square Garden, you’ll be presented with a window listing a slew of available tickets along with the venue’s seating chart.

$87 sounds pretty steep for nosebleeds, right? Duh, so that’s why the Ticket Forecast comes in handy. Upon logging into SeatGeek, you’ll be able to view the forecast for a ticket’s price. So, as you can see below, Gorillaz ticket prices keep going down, so you might want to wait a few more weeks before pulling the trigger.

Now, where does Consequence of Sound come into this? Well, as mentioned, SeatGeek developed a ticket calendar for us. Using your IP address, the calendar is able to list all upcoming events in your area. You’re then able to buy tickets for one of the shows listed or search for a specific band or city in the search box at the top.

In an era where early morning on-sale dates and insane surcharges have made ticket buying a despised activity, we felt this solution offers something new and different. It puts the consumer, aka you guys, in control, so we hope you enjoy.
