Music subscription service Rhapsody is joining them with the release of iPhone app Rhapsody Concerts. Released as a free download on Apple’s App Store, it tells people who’s playing soon near them, enables them to buy tickets for concerts from their phone, and if they’re a Rhapsody subscriber, listen to music from those artists too. Rhapsody is also curating playlists based on big tours and festivals. A 14-day Rhapsody trial is also built in for non-subscribers. “Our members are huge music fans and we have always understood that fans want to ‘do more than listen,’,” says SVP of product and design Paul Springer in a statement, hinting at more spin-off apps to come. Rhapsody Concerts follows the launch of Shazam-style identification app Rhapsody SongMatch on Android last December (Bulletin, 6-Dec-12), which has since been installed between 50k and 100k times according to Google Play figures. That app has yet to be released for iPhone.
