Apps for Scoring Cheap Tickets

Post saved!

There’s nothing like jamming out to your favorite band or witnessing the spectacle of a Broadway show. However, such immersive and awe-inspiring experiences do not come cheap. Live entertainment can be pricey, but with apps like Bandsintown, SeatGeek, and TodayTix, seeing quality shows come at low costs. From Broadway, to concert venues, to stadiums, the options are within one click.

Rated as the number one concert discovery app and serving as a tracking and ticket app, Bandsintown allows users to track down their favorite artists and receive notifications when they are touring near the user. For the avid concert-goer, Bandsintown also keeps track of the many concerts in your itinerary by syncing RSVPs for concerts into your calendar as well as allowing users to share show details with friends. Using intel gathered via your music libraries from iTunes, Spotify, and Soundcloud, as well as frequently liked musicians mentioned on Facebook and Twitter accounts, the app personalizes a list of potential artists and similar-sounding musicians as track suggestions. The app’s “Promoters” feature updates users on pre-sale, on-sale, maintenance, and back-end sale prices, ensuring users are aware of price fluctuations and ticket inventory so they can be the first-served when purchasing, saving both time and money.

One of the best event apps out there, SeatGeek hooks users up with the best deals on some of the hottest events. Choosing from sports, concerts, plays, and even comedy clubs, SeatGeek is the place to go for price comparisons on all events, uploading offers from thousands of sellers and color-coding each offer based on price rates. The app covers all major cities throughout the United States, from Boston to Los Angeles. Have a last-minute cancellation and don’t want to waste tickets you’ve already purchased? SeatGeek users can also sell their tickets via the app’s Sell feature. Listing tickets on SeatGeek is free, albeit a 20% fee off the seller’s purchase price. However, sellers are free to remove their unsold listings at any time. Additionally, SeatGeek’s Deal Score feature helps both buyers and sellers find the best discounts and rates, helping users make the most informed decisions. From WWE tournaments to Red Hot Chili Peppers concerts, SeatGeek is an awesome platform for the avid entertainment-seeker.

TodayTix and tkts
For musical junkies and theater geeks, apps like TodayTix and tkts are the ultimate key to saving on Broadway’s A-list shows. When theaters have extra seats or last-minute cancellations, these apps are the first to know about them, offering users tickets at half off the original price. Covering nine major US cities and London’s West End, TodayTix offers hundreds of great offers everyday thanks to their partnerships with over 150 theater institutions worldwide, making it the perfect platform for discounted tickets and expanding accessibility to professional theater. Whether it’s the Metropolitan Opera, Blue Man Group, Cirque Du Soleil or Hamilton, these apps are a necessity for those who frequent the theater.
