Ticketmaster today updated its iOS app to add integration with Apple Music.

Version 1.10.2 of the app uses the Apple Music API, made available to developers last April, to provide users with recommendations based on artists in their music library.

App users who allow the Ticketmaster app to scan their library will receive ticket alerts from their most listened-to artists, and – if they also enable GPS/location services – push notifications when they are playing nearby.

After Spotify, Apple Music is the second most popular on-demand music streaming service, surpassing 20 million paying subscribers in December.

Ticketmaster has a deeper partnership with Spotify – predicted to soon break the 50m subscriber mark – that sees its concert ticket listings integrated on artist pages in the Spotify app.
