Songkick announced today that they’ve created a tool for allowing musicians to publish their tour dates across a myriad of online networks, much like the ArtistData tool that was bought by Sonicbids a few years back. They’re calling this tool Tourbox; read more from their founder Ian here via their official blog post.
Today, we’re expanding our mission to enable artists to join Songkick’s community of people who believe in the power of live music. We’re excited to tell you about Tourbox, our revolutionary new publishing tool for artists. It’s super easy-to-use. Simply enter your tour dates, once, and we publish them everywhere. Automagically they hit Songkick, Spotify, SoundCloud and YouTube as well as on an artist’s website, Facebook and Tumblr. Tourbox helps musicians at any stage of their career power their tour listings across all of their pages and profiles.
