We’ve now got another interesting Live Nation acquisition The concert industry behemoth has just acquired the wiki site Setlist.fm.

Although most fans in the jam world have grown accustomed to being able to easily search and find a for most of their favorite bands’ shows, for other bands with less concert-centric fanatics, there really wasn’t any kind of comprehensive database until Setist.fm came around.

We’ve been fans of for a while now, so it’s cool to see how much they’ve grown. The wiki site now has a database of more than 400,000 for 24,000 artists in more than 70,000 around the world and claims to reach more than 1.5 million music fans each month.

Here are some quotes per the official press release:

built a great product for concert fans and we will further elevate this by incorporating it into ’s global portfolio across mobile, and online,” said Michael Rapino, CEO of Entertainment. “Setlist.fm fits perfectly with our goal of providing fans an engaging experience that extends the fun and excitement of the live concert before, during and after the show.”

has demonstrated great appreciation for Setlist.fm and our passionate community,” said Alexa Wildhaber, CEO of Setlist.fm. “We are thrilled that Setlist.fm will become a part of the world’s largest live entertainment company.

I have to say that the entrepreneur in me is now thinking that this space might have more legs than I originally thought. It’ll be interesting to see if Live Nation makes any other acquisitions this year as they flesh out their digital strategy around the newly-formed Live Nation Labs and seek out other ways to expand on the LiveNation.com site and fan community. As always, we’ll keep our eye on it.
