As downtown Tucson continues to grow, so does the Rialto Theatre Foundation. A Ticketfly partner since 2013, the foundation operates historic Arizona venue The Rialto Theatre and recently took over the mid-sized 191 Toole, bringing it into the ‘fly fold and strengthening the city’s growing music scene.
As our friend Ice Cube might say, today was a good day. This morning we announced a record-breaking sixty-day period for the ‘fly in the Southern United States. In just two months, 12 venues, three festivals, one promoter, and one professional sports team joined up with us and we couldn’t be prouder to say “thanks, y’all!” This unprecedented run was catalyzed by the success of Memphis in May’s Beale Street Music Festival this past spring. The notable additions span seven states and make Ticketfly the top provider to independent venues and promoters in the region. The newest partners include:
Brooklyn DIY venue and long-time Ticketfly partner The Acheron ended a six-year run on July 9, leaving a swarm of NY punks and metalheads mourning.
Ticketfly may not be in the Olympics, but we’re still going for gold. We recently launched Pandora concert notifications, along with offer templates in Ticketfly Promoter and automated cart abandonment emails to re-engage fans. But we can’t bring home any medals without an all-star team. Meet the newest additions to our ‘fly fam.
We love concerts, whether it’s an acoustic show at a cozy coffee joint or a roving festival with an explosive production. As long as the music reigns supreme, we’re all in. That said, we wouldn’t mind if the great music was being delivered on a stage along a river where we could also ride horses and BMX bikes, camp, play laser tag, wakeboard, speed down a 100-foot water slide that launches us 25-feet into the air, or pretend we’re superheroes while using a water-propelled jet pack.
While that may sound like a fantasy land you dreamt up as a kid, it’s a very real destination. Continue reading
Last year, we joined forces with Pandora to create the world’s most powerful music marketing platform. Today we’re taking another step toward making that vision a reality with automated, personalized concert notifications for Ticketfly shows on Pandora. Pandora listeners will receive notifications for just-announced shows and onsales in an increasing number of ways, including: feed alerts in the Pandora app (already live), push notifications on mobile devices (launching soon), and personalized live event email digests (launching later this year).
For live event promoters, marketing’s often costly, time-consuming, and never-ending. As fans, we’re faced with a million distractions and still end up missing events when we meant to buy tickets. Just over two months ago, we started tackling that exact problem: how we can help re-engage fans who’ve expressed intent (or who left tickets in their cart) without adding more work to the mix. Enter cart abandonment emails.
