It was only a matter of time before the world’s largest promoter and the world’s biggest platform for streaming music joined forces. Today, Ticketmaster and Spotify announced a unique partnership, wherein Ticketmaster can now include links to buy tickets into pages on Spotify. The union between Ticketmaster and Spotify will allow for unprecedented marketing of live music events, directly to the fans who are listening to the artists of interest.While Spotify has long recommended live performances to its users, the direct connection to Ticketmaster seems to be more comprehensive. Spotify is also partnered with concert database website Songkick, so shows that do not fall under the Ticketmaster umbrella will still be represented. The ultimate goal is to provide meaningful show recommendations for listeners who would want to experience certain performers live.You can read the official statement from Spotify about this new partnership, below.We’re also furthering our commitment to the live space through a new partnership with Ticketmaster. Starting this week, we’ll be integrating their concert listings into artist pages, the recommended concerts feature, and our emails. Ticketmaster’s global scale provides Spotify users with the most diverse options for live events and will help drive more fans to concerts. Working directly with the Ticketmaster team and their data feeds will simplify the purchase experience and deepen our understanding of how recommendations drive sales. By combining listening data with purchase behavior, we’ll be able to refine our recommendations — and ultimately provide you with a sharper understanding of your fans.We’ll continue partnering with Songkick for concerts that aren’t being sold via Ticketmaster. Through Songkick’s comprehensive database of shows, we’ll ensure that every date — no matter who you ticket through — is listed and can be recommended to fans around the world.Will SpotifyMaster help fans get out to more concerts? Only time will tell.
Most old timers remember the Black Sox Scandal (when the Chicago White Sox threw the World Series in baseball), and some of the point-shaving incidents in college basketball that crop up every once in a while. What you hear about every year is who really controls certain pro sport playoff outcomes. I read that if the Pacers had beaten the Heat, TV revenue would have been cut in half. With those kind of statements, people will still always wonder if the games are really played out or are they manipulated toward a positive TV outcome. I am still not so cynical that I believe all of them are fixed and most of the time the team playing the best ball wins. We all know that certain players get by with a lot more than the lesser known ones do. Michael Jordan got 5 steps before he traveled, and Joe Morgan seldom ever got called out on strikes. Likewise, LeBron James never pushes off to get open. Once in a while officials have been disciplined for questionable calls in games, but those are usually for ineptness rather than trying to allow a certain team to win. You do wonder how certain ball players seem to always avoid drug testing when later it is revealed they use banned substances. I know TV is powerful and schedules are altered so certain teams get on TV more than others, but I still think that most championships are still won by the best team in that particular season. At least we hope that is the case.
