Live Nation has partnered with BandPage to add artist profiles on LiveNation.com. The match follows similar BandPage Connect API integrations with VEVO, Xbox Music and Rhapsody. BandPage's 500,000 artist profiles will begin appearing on Live Nation websites and mobile apps in December 2013.
"LiveNation.com and our other digital properties are data-driven by our BigChampagne Ultimate Chart platform,” said Eric Garland, general manager of LiveNation.com. “We look forward to partnering with BandPage to enrich our consumer offering even further." Garland's hinted "further" integration could mean the addition of BandPage powered tour dates, which are not part of the initial offering.
"We're on a mission to revolutionize the music industry: BandPage empowers artists to engage more fans, in more meaningful ways, and enables them to make significantly more money,” said J Sider, CEO and founder, BandPage. “By working with major players like Live Nation, we are helping artists and musicians connect directly with their fans in the places where they are most engaged.”
