Cheap Live Nation tickets for Tinder users

Live Nation has announced a new partnership with mobile dating app Tinder, providing users of the app with US$30 tickets to concerts by the Chainsmokers, Asap Ferg and more for an “epic first date”.

To access the discounted tickets, Tinder users in the United States must swipe right when they come across a tour profile card. A link will then lead to a landing page featuring all tour and ticket information. The promotion will run until the end of October.

Tickets are available in select US cities for twelve concert tours for shows by the Chainsmokers, Asap Ferg, Logic, Lukas Graham, Meek Mill, Gesaffelstein, Gloria Trevi, Gryffin the Head and the Heart, Sabrina Claudio and Young Thug.

Users can also access discounted tickets for the alchemy tour, featuring Nghtmare and Slander.

The initiative is not the first partnership between the dating app and live music giants. In May, Tinder teamed up with Live Nation and AEG to create “Festival Mode”, allowing users to match with fellow festivalgoers before attending events in the United States, the UK and Australia.

Ticketers offer discounts for Black Friday

Several venues and ticket agencies have slashed ticket prices for the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend.

Chief among them is Ticketmaster, which is offering up to 50% off shows by Craig David, Bay City Rollers, Matt Goss, The Coral (pictured) and The Damned in the UK and a range of ‘holiday’ deals on Ariana Grande, Mary J. Blige, Kenny Rogers, The Jezabels and Andrew WK in the US.

Elsewhere in the US, a number of Pennsylvania venues are discounting up to 35% from Weezer, Disney on Ice, Harmlem Globetrotters and Foghat tickets, while Florida-based Ill Points is offering 20% off tickets to its concert series at Art Basel in Switzerland (James Blake, Chet Faker, Young Thug) next week.

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, widely regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US

In the festival world, meanwhile, Bonnaroo begins its 2017 Black Friday presale today, with car/camping passes thrown in for free when buying four general admission tickets.

And for those wanting to take advantage of Spotify’s Songkick and Ticketmaster concert listings, the world’s most popular streaming service is giving away three months of Spotify Premium (with full, on-demand music streaming) for US$0.99 until 1 January.

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, widely regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US (Cyber Monday is the following Monday). It has since spread to other parts of the world, including the UK, Romania, India, France and the Netherlands.
