Live Nation has announced that fans attending concerts can now request Uber rides using the updated Live Nation iOS and Android app. The new development will allow fans an easy option for ordering rides to and from events complete with time and cost estimates for Uber users.
“Offering the ability to request a safe and hassle-free Uber ride through our Live Nation app lets fans focus less on arrivals and departures, and more on their great live music experience,” said Mark Campana, Co-President North American Concerts, Live Nation Entertainment.
Live Nation is also creating special Uber pick-up/drop-off zones located close to main entrances of Live Nation Amphitheaters to provide fans faster entry into concerts.
New Uber users are eligible for a $30 discount on their first ride and the app is available for download at both the Apple and Android stores.
“We are thrilled to work with Live Nation to launch this first-of-its-kind partnership,” said Matt Wyndowe, head of product partnerships at Uber. “With this integration, music lovers from across North America will be able to connect with Uber and request a reliable ride at the touch of a button.”
