Gametime, the leader in on demand mobile sports ticketing, today brings its unique mobilefirst platform to millions of live music fans with the launch of concert ticket sales on the app.
Events will debut in five key markets: San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York/New Jersey, Chicago and Seattle, with additional cities following quickly. Tickets for upcoming shows by The Weeknd, Muse, Odesza, Justin Bieber, Billy Joel and Metallica can now be purchased in seconds for venues like San Francisco’s legendary Fillmore, New York’s Radio City Music Hall, LA’s Staples Center and the Showbox in Seattle. In total, Gametime has activated nearly 150 events for close to 50 venues for its launch cities with many more to follow in the coming weeks. Continuing on its mission to better connect fans through access to live events, Gametime offers mobile enabled concert tickets even after a show begins, often at discounted prices a key consideration for concert goers who may not be interested in opening acts and wish to buy closer to the headliner.
To further support the needs of music consumers, Gametime will now also list concert events much further in advance, months rather than weeks, to ensure its customers are first to snag tickets to their favorite shows if they choose. For example, Justin Bieber’s tour stops in New York in July are already live on Gametime. “For some time our users have wanted the same instant delivery and spontaneity for music that we offer with sports tickets. We’re excited to fulfill those requests and welcome even more music fans to Gametime,” said Brad Griffith, Founder and CEO of Gametime. “Ultimately, whether fans decide hours or weeks before to attend an event, we want them to enjoy the most seamless experience from browsing to purchase without worry about printing or forgetting tickets.”
In just over two years, Gametime has grown a heavy base of millennial, mobilesavvy and spontaneous fans who voiced the need for a live music ticket provider offering the same ondemand, seamless experience Gametime delivers for sports tickets.
With the infrastructure in place, and sports side of business firmly established, expanding into live music was a natural progression for Gametime. Concert tickets will initially come from Gametime’s established third party suppliers. The company expects its music offering to open doors to new partnership opportunities that continue to broaden its supply.
