Songkick app: ‘We won’t be selling tickets ourselves…’


Tags:

Songkick the company is shutting down, ending its ticketing operations after a punishing legal battle with Live Nation and Ticketmaster.

Songkick the concert-recommendations app, however, is very much alive and kicking, having been sold to Warner Music Group earlier this year.

To head off potential confusion for its users around the corporate-shutdown news, the app’s team published a blog post late last week to clear things up.

“First things first, we’re not going anywhere,” they said of the WMG acquisition. “Together we’ll be doubling down on our mission to improve the live experience, bring fans and artists closer together and, of course, make sure you never ever miss your favourite artists live.”

The app no longer has ambitions to actually sell tickets though.

“You can still count on us to be the first to tell you about new concerts, and to point you to the fairest, safest places to buy tickets,” continued the blog post. “Though we won’t be selling tickets ourselves, we’ll always be your trusted home for live music online.”
