AEG’s AXS ticketing platform has teamed with subscription service Rdio. The partnership allows concertgoers to hear their favorite songs anywhere, even before the concert starts, via mobile phones, the web, and on internet-connected TVs and wireless speakers.
Buyers who purchase tickets using AXS can sign up for a free, 30-day trial of Rdio’s Unlimited subscription service. Consumers who choose to continue using the Rdio service can purchase through integrated billing with AXS.
Additionally, every new Rdio account will automatically be tailored to the user’s concert history. They will also get notifications when an artist or band they have seen in concert adds new music to Rdio’s library.
The partnership includes only the United States, though Rdio offers a catalog of over 32 million songs in 85 countries worldwide.
“We are thrilled to partner with AXS to provide millions of concert goers access to our vast music library of over 32 million songs through this seamless integration with the live performance purchase experience,” said Anthony Bay, CEO of Rdio. “Rdio’s music discovery features and unlimited streaming service will provide AXS customers a unique and always-on experience that is second only to hearing your favorite music live.”
“AXS has always been about more than just ticketing. Our goal is to provide technologies that unify every aspect of the event experience and Rdio’s superior user experience and deep catalog will allow AXS.com users to easily find and listen to their favorite music, discover new artists they might want to see live, and help us alert them to events by their favorite artists,” said Bryan Perez, CEO of AXS. “We are excited to partner with and support Rdio to bring the music-listening experience from the concert venue to your home, office and smartphone.”
