I went all the way to AZ, Nevada, to see an artist featured in song kick. We get their and not only was the show canceled. It was a name very similar to the artist I was looking to see perform. You song kick even provided a picture of the group. It took 2 months to finally be issued a refund. The concert I am attending tonight you added the name in the line up that is scheduled to perform at the same venue tomorrow. Lastly, you listed the Isley brothers where going to join in he lineup at the Greek theater LA. It was also an error. The group listed wasn’t even performing that night. Please double check your info before you post the performance notification. Thanks
So I love this app, I’ve probably had it for over 4-5 years now. During the pandemic I used it a lot less, but now that everything seems to be opening up again I thought I’d see what it lists, except…. The dang thing constantly crashes! I’ve tried updating it, opening it from the app drawer, the App Store, and searching but it always crashes. Might load like 5-6 artists, then freezes and crashes. Often it doesn’t even load anything before it crashes. I’m on an iPhone XR (latest IOS version too), but it still crashes. I actually saved a screen recording video of the behavior, if a developer wanted to see what I mean. Like I said I love this app, but if it doesn’t even open it becomes kinda useless. If this gets fixed at some point I’d gladly improve my rating, figured this might be the best way to let someone know of the problem though.
No way to reach customer service , all attempts in vain
I have been trying to reach out to customer service at Songkick with no luck. I purchased 2 tickets on Sept 26 for an upcoming event and have received no confirmation emails, nor does it show anywhere that I have purchased these tickets except on my bank statement. I’ve tried reaching out because every time I choose the option to submit a request, I get looped back to information to reach out to the vendor. The problem is, I cannot find the vendor. On your app, it simply says prekindle and my bank statement says Granada, however, neither of those are on your list of vendors so I cannot access my tickets. This does not seem very user friendly, when I cannot even email you about a ticket I purchased through your site. I would rather have dealt with this issue quietly through email, but leaving a review seems to be the only way to reach anyone. Very frustrating !
My genre is aging, and then the pandemic puts this “chokehold” on live performances. I’ve asked Songkick to keep me abreast of what is new and exiting in my area (Rochester Hills MI) and they NEVER waste my time with “junk” outside the style of music I’ve asked them to follow for me. Not a peep out of them for months until today as they proudly tell me the band Modern English will be (hopefully) performing at a tiny venue in Royal Oak, just a few miles from home! I thank those at Songkick who are behind the script of what is allowed to come into my smartphone. I’m off now to hopefully buy some tickets to the concert!
I used to love this app. It was my primary source to find concerts for the artists I love and had an amazing yet simple interface that made finding the info I needed easy. After they changed the ui however, it started randomly adding artists to my tracked artists. This isn’t after scanning my library either. I’d open the app and be inundated with info for artists I neither knew nor cared for who were also now being tracked. There are no options to fine tune or disable this and after a while I just stopped using Songkick altogether. It’s probably still worth using to find info quickly in a pinch, but with seeing loads of unknowns every time I open it I’d rather just google.
Fantastic way to track gigs by your favorite bands
I used to miss gigs constantly because I didn’t know about them till it was too late, but with Songkick I get notified as soon as a band in my music library has a new gig, and then I can click through the site to order tickets from multiple ticket vendors, which makes it so easy to do by phone when tickets become available. It’s also useful for keeping track of which shows you’ve going to and what you’re thinking of if tickets become available. Awesome app, has improved my live music life so much.
Hey! My name is Avery,and I love this app! It let’s you buy concert tickets straight from the app. It also lets me look for different tour dates. Being a huge Shawn Mendes fan, of course I wanted VIP tickets and looked as soon as I got the app and they were all sold out in my location. And I wanted to know we’re they weren’t sold out. So could you install an feature where I can see where VIP is still available? That would be excellent and i’m sure others would appreciate it as well! If not, i’ll just have to figure out where his hotel is but that’s hard enough as it is, because who knows where he could be staying. Thank you for reading this!
... for my wallet. I have attended way more concerts since downloading this app, since I’ve been notified about them, and reminded to buy my tickets when I express interest in them. I seriously have a concert problem. This app is amazing for keeping track of events and shows. I’m using it for nearby places and places I travel to often and it is great for planning out my trips around school. I guess I need to work more hours to compensate for the amount of concerts I’m now attending 😭
When I travel, I like to be able to look up my favorite artists to see if any of them are playing in my destination. This should be a simple filter, but the app makes it impossible. Look by favorite artist? No filter by location. Look up places? No filter for favorite artist. Also, the calendar feature limits you to one day at a time, making it hard to see if bands I like are playing over my time in town (like over a weekend). When they fix these, it will be great. Would also be nice if the app showed when favorite bands released new music. Also, the “email us” feedback button doesn’t work.
How do I make the list *ONLY* artists I want to see? I added many artists to my list, yet somehow there are a bunch of other artists showing in the “your shows” calendar. Some artists that show up randomly and unwanted I have no interest in seeing, others I have never heard of. I hand-selected my own list, and did not allow the app to sync with my music library so this makes no sense. It’s just cluttering my lists. Make it go away, and you’ll have a much better app. Make it so that EVERY show listing also has ticket prices and a quick link to get the full info for the venue (website, phone, & physical address) and you’ll have a 5-star app. Right now it’s hardly even a concert calendar.
I love getting notifications about favorite artists, but there is a problem with the search function. You can only pick particular cities/locations to track. However, Songkick returns results from locations more than 100 miles away. For example, I track Wilmington, DE, and Songkick shows me results from Reading, PA and Wilkes-Barre, PA. There needs to be a function that limits the output to a user determined range from the city or from a particular city. I would like to be able to have Songkick only tell about concerts within 75 miles of Wilmington. Right now I get a flood of notifications that are much farther than I want to travel. Add that capability, and this app is 5 stars!
CAUTION! THEY NOT TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY TICKET
Recently I bought a ticket through this app where they provided link to a third party website. I was checking my concert in the app and I found the concert was displeased. Then I realized something went wrong and I checked my event through the third party website where I bought ticket from, suddenly I realized it’s not the same artist!! Their name are similar and confused me!! I don’t know how many people got also confused about this concert, but now the tickets are non-refundable from that website and SongKick claiming they do not take responsibility for any tickets, it’s just terrible... apparently they didn’t check the authority of concert event well when it comes to not that famous artists. Really disappointed. Won’t use it anymore.
this recent update is horrible! What was once a great app w an easy list of my concert plans has become this nightmare... why ruin a good thing? The cluttered page w the ‘tracked artist’ & a bunch of bands ‘because you might like’ is visually confusing. Plus the font of all the artists are chopped off so it’s unreadable. And the ‘my tracked artists‘ page Is better by comparison but now I can’t easily tell what concerts I have or plan to buy tickets to as I could w the previous version. I used to use this app all the time now I’m having a hard time wanting to continue to use it... Please please please reconfigure to make it great again!
There aren’t many apps that have had such an impact on my quality of life and happiness. I don’t check Songkick every day, but when it sends me notifications about concerts that I want to go to I can immediately buy tickets and put the gig in my calendar. I used to stay up to date by checking the websites of the various venues in St Louis when I lived there, which was time consuming. Now that I live in London it’s impossible! That’s why Songkick has been, in my opinion, the best innovation in the app world.
This app isn’t perfect but I use it as my main source for looking for concerts. Well I was looking for concerts for the dubstep producer “Moth” that heavy deathstep artists. Well it shows up and the picture for the banner looks like something a metal band or someone would use and it says “moth.” Unfortunately the dates listed are not for the dark head banging dubstep producer but for a more relaxed “Moth Story Slam” where people go on stage and read story’s they have written. Almost bought tickets and thank god I didn’t.
I love Songkick. I have been using it since I was a teenager. One of my favorite features on this app is how they let you know the concert dates way in advance, as well as the ticket prices and where to get them. I also like how you are now able to add the show dates to your calendar. All in all, this is a very convenient app and for someone who does not have any social media, it makes it easy to know when my favorite artists will be in town.
For the most part this app has been super useful and I’m very happy with it. However, a couple of the artists i follow on Songkick have shows in my area that are actively being promoted on Facebook by their respective venues, but they aren’t listed in Songkick for some reason. I follow these venues on Songkick, too so I don’t understand why not all of their events are showing up. I think giving users the option to submit their own info about concerts would be a nifty feature.
I’ve beeen using Songkick for at least 5 years now and it’s never let me down. They give just the right amount of notifications and they know about any old thing or band that’s swinging into town. I love when notifications for a band playing soon comes in at night— there’s nothing better then waking up to a little message that somebody rad is going to be playing sweet jams in your neighborhood soon. 10/10 dog. Forever and always.
Songkick is good except for their wish to control my life. I have a few groups that I want to track but Songkick wants to alert me of every concert in my city instead. Songkick constantly nags to add new groups. Maybe songkick just isn’t the right app for me. I hope not because with a small addition to the settings it could be perfect. For example, allow tracking specific artists, whereever they are and let me specify alerts for only specified artists. Let me turn OFF Tracking in my local city.
If there’s a concert that will sell out quickly, don’t rely on this app to notify you. Concerts aren’t really posted until a couple days after they’ve been announced, so I usually find out about the concert before songkick does. My biggest problem is that there’s barely any information about the actual concert. I almost always have to dig through the internet to find out about the age restrictions or seating. If there was a section for the age restrictions, I would give the app 5 stars. However, If your above 21 year’s then I recommend this app.
I was really excited to try out the app, however, quickly discovered that only a very small subset of concerts is available through Songkit. For example, neither SFJazz nor Stanfor Live programs are featured. I searched for a few artists who had local concerts coming up, but the app said that none were on the artist schedule. I sincerely hope that more sources will be added in the future to make this app really useful. Love other features though, e.g. scanning the music library for favoriteartists, etc. Clean UI as well.
Bad functionality is great, needs better location and notification filters
I have several locations set, would like to be able to set one as primary others as “would travel for” this is useful because I live in a medium sized city, then I would like to have notifications work around that so I’m not flooded with notifications and dates for duplicate concert tours at many locations, this would also make app easier to browse
I love this app. been using it for years. notifies me when an artist I track is playing near me and gives me options of prices to buy tickets! shows you were the artist will be touring and the price on each website they’re selling their tickets! love it more than any other app to buy tickets or track. use this app if you want to go to see all the people you love!!
Be the first to know about your favorite bands coming to town
In the past, I always wondered how people found out about awesome concerts and bands playing near me. It was always a mystery. Now, with Songkick, I’ll always be the first to know. It’s amazing. You tell Songkick a few of your favorite bands, and it learns the kind of music you like. Then, when a band that matches your musical tastes plans a concert near you, you get a notification a few months in advance. It really is the best.
The only thing I would update is some posts about concerts aren’t accurate. Some of the concerts get cancelled and it would be nice if these posts either get taken down or if you alerted people who might have bought tickets that this has happened. Continuing to have the post up is a bit misleading and if the actual post on Ticketmaster or whatever site didn’t have accurate info could cause problems for future people trying to get tickets to that event.
I’m sixty and computer illiterate if not for you folks I wouldn’t know how to follow my favorite bands. I just saw go go’s are playing nearby and James Taylor also. I have cancer And don’t know how long I will be around and before I leave this world I would love to see James Taylor up close and personal. One of my most favorite gutair players ( along w/ C S N Y) so Thank You for doing what you guys do!! God Bless you all. Now I have to see how I can pull this off. Thanks again !!! Patrick
I used to LOVE Songkick. It did everything I needed and didn’t have extra unnecessary features. Now it’s almost the opposite. It’s always pushing new artists and the app is cluttered. It’s a hassle to find upcoming shows from artists I track (the entire purpose) without being bombarded with annoying suggestions. I get the notification badge when there’s nothing new and other times I don’t get any notification and I find out about a concert from another source. A couple years ago, this was my go to app. I recommended it to people as the only concert app they’ll need. Now I might as well delete it.
One of the BEST BANDS OF ALL TIMES!! I’m 63 and would love to see them before I leave this world! Their music inspires me. Brings back the time when music was MUSIC. Makes me laughs and cry. Brings back emotions I thought I had forgotten. KEEP ON ROCKING LADIES ! Maybe one day maybe my daughter will get to see them. If I had the money I’d walk to Alpharetta. But when you’re on disability it’s had to buy groceries must less see the greatest bands around. EVERYONE THAT GOES ROCK ON FOR ME! I’ll feel it! Thank you! Much love to Heart Fans!!!❤️
It’s a great app and I used to use it all the time. But it’s only really helpful for people who listen to music genres other than k-pop. They have groups like BTS, Red Velvet, Everglow, ITZY, and Twice and they only have 12 more or so. They’re missing groups like LOONA, NU’EST, SEVENTEEN, APRIL... I was especially disappointed by how they didn’t have CLC or Day6. They didn’t even have K-Pop listed as a genre :( What I’m trying to say is, I hope in the next update they add K-Pop as one of the official genres and more groups/artists, especially since it’s so popular now internationally. Thank you ❥
This app is great I’m gonna use this app to go to one of my favorite band/group thing and I this app is perfect for finding concert tickets I am a big fan of bts my dad went to one of there concerts and I really wanna go to one although I probably won’t be able to but me and my cousin are obsessed with them and I’ve always wanted to at least me jimin and I hope that one day I will be able to go
I like the way this app works but you can’t depend on it 100%. It misses shows from significant artists. Looking just now and they have a few dates for Roger Daltrey but are missing a show that’s between two dates they do list. Then, Ringo Starr shows dates with no year, so I had to go elsewhere to see they were next year. A few years back, there was at least one Rolling Stones gig that wasn’t listed. If you keep that in mind, it’s a cool app.
This was the answer to my scattered, music-loving brain to stop missing my favorite, especially Indie bands. But, I love ALL music! So,I’m thankful how well this app skillfully notifies me of the perfect (even new to me) bands from all genres based on my quick registration. I actually got teary-eyed just now when I r a very meaningful (to my fam) update because music does unite families! I know I sound corny! I hope you’re laughing. Lol.
You used to be able to scroll the entire calendar end to end to forecast shows that were coming through before this new update. Now you have to page through every 2 or 3 days and each time it defaults to your current date which adds more back-tracking and redundancy. It also doesn't include the entirety of a date on a page, so if you aren't careful, you can potentially miss shows because they aren't all listed in the same place. At least include a next page button to reduce the amount of backtracking involved.
Thank you songkick!! I will continue to recommend this app to every music lover I know. Songkick has helped me find amazing shows I didn’t even know were happening. I found out that all these bands were playing in my area through Songkick: Alvvays, Wallows, Hippo Campus, Bad Suns, Cage the Elephant and so many more!! I always have an amazing time at the shows that Songkick recommends to me based on the music I like and artists I track.
Songkick is almost perfect! But as someone who loves live music, I’d love the option to view upcoming concerts if followed artists and those recommended in a monthly calendar view, it would be great to easily see which concerts might conflict or busy weeks for shows. I’d love to see the monthly, tag what I have tickets to and sync to a Songkick calendar in my iCal to share with friends. Thank you for considering my suggestion!
I always used to check other websites and apps on days when I thought I might be off for what shows were coming up. But I always felt like I was missing my favorite bands. The integration of my current favorite artists is amazing and I’ve had this app for about 23 minutes. Can’t wait to never miss another one of my favorite shows!
Hi there, This app is terrific. The one killer search-option would be to search by venue in a city or state. This would help cut down searching or saving by band and provide another quick way to not miss shows. Also - many folks prefer one venue over another space location seating etc and this could help boost more people searching the app and converting the consumer.
Was an incredible performance We were all amazed at his quality of song and play. Truly a treat and blast from the past when I saw him last in 1985 at Park West. His last two songs effected me profoundly as I was about to commit adultery after 26 years of marriage. Tomorrow I was going to do it and now I am not thanx to Howard and his music. Thank you Howard for Sharing your life with people you don’t even know.
This is the greatest app for any music lover who likes to catch live music. It’s hard to track every band you’re into. And I’ve caught shows I wouldn’t have known about without Songkick. Shows that I am glad I didn’t miss. It’ll scan bands in your playlist and search for events. Plus with notifications you get surprises daily on upcoming shows to look forward to.. High high praise for Songkick!!! -Ed N.H.
I am a stay at home dad and I need to get out of the house like you read about! For me there is no better way to escape than to get out with the best music fans and thrash around headbang and listen to some live metal! Love it! Songkick keeps me informed on who where and when! Nothing worse than hearing about a show after and I’m left going, why didn’t I know about that, so I love songkick! They totally rock!
This app is awesome! Thanks to Songkick, I got pretty decent seats to Twenty One Pilots for a VERY cheap price! Literally all you have to do is make a list of your favorite artists, and it sends you a notification when they schedule an event near you. It tells you when and where all of their events are, and offers you tickets at a very good price. My ticket for tøp was only $40!
The service and the app are good. I’m into hyper local shows, and it catches some. For others it aliases the names to other bands with the same name elsewhere, but that’s acceptable. What’s not acceptable is that the app logs you out all the time. I have alerts set for new concerts, but every week I click on an alert it gives me a dead end page asking me to list my location, etc. Then you find it logged you out. There is absolutely no reason a mobile app should log you out without your consent more than once every few months at most. There isn’t even sensitive information that could be compromised. It makes zero sense. Hence there are competitor apps that are much less of a hassle that are worth checking out for local shows.
Great app, the best I know of for tracking concerts nearby. I think it’s better and less sloppy than Bandsintown. Simple and efficient. My only complaint is that not every concert is always listed, I found out an artist I like was performing in Chicago from their website and SongKick didn’t have it on the app. There’s only been one or two instances where I’ve noticed this, otherwise it’s great
I used to hate missing a concert because I didn’t always look at all the venues calendars and music is always in the process of being booked. Along comes Songkick which taps into my favorite artists and let’s me know when they’ll be nearby. Love this app! Never miss your favorite bands again!
please add an option to only display concerts by location in order of precedence. for instance, I see 4 concerts from the same artist on four different night sun my relevant section because I have four locations added, but I only want to see the concert in my city and if they’re not going to be in my city, then show me other cities nearby. Sort of like adding a ranking to all your locations, if PHL concert then don’t show NYC concert.
Love the app, very easy to use. Makes finding events for my favorite artist a breeze. Two star demerit because for some reason the app is telling me events are happening in my town but when i got to check the address of the actual venue the location is a whole city over… ~_~ Huge bait n switch as im already excited that my fav artist is in town only to find out theyre not even close. Otherwise, great app!
This app is just okay. I like kpop, and it’s very rare for the bands to come to where I live. I have had Songkick for a few months, and I’m slowly realizing that they tell you about concerts and when artists will be performing near you, but it’s super delayed. I knew about a kpop concert three days before Songkick even sent me a notification. If I hadn’t been looking in the internet for a concert, I wouldn’t have known until the seats were sold out. A little disappointing.
The app does not allow the band to announce a concert it seems to rely on some outside agency to announce his show which the artist never has connection to. You keep artist down when you do not allow them to announce to the world their performances. I think you should not be in existence because you’re interfering with people and you’re playing the algorithm game,
This app has contracted the disease referred to as “Carouselitis” where a bullheaded product manager mandates (without user testing) that carousels (horizontally scrolling trays limited to about 5 results) be shoved in every nook and cranny of the app. What is our product roadmap for the next 12-months? “Carousels of carousels!” Why actually innovate when you make the UI 100% carousel? Still use the app and go to shows all the time recommended by Songkick. Just praying for SongKicks speedy recovery from carouselitis. I have 100s of artists on my watchlist, get these carousels out of my way.
Always get good recommendations and I love that they use your music apps to curate concerts for you. Only complaint isn’t one just that I would love an option to mark if your under 21 so that I know what shows I can actually go to instead of getting teased that a band is coming that I love but can’t see.
