YouTube Partners With Ticketmaster To Display Tour Dates

YouTube Partners With Ticketmaster To Display Tour DatesFor artists, YouTube is both a promotional platform and a destination for the music itself. The video site is home to many forms of video content, such as official music videos, Art Tracks and other less formal looks like behind the scenes footage or specific events. That’s why YouTube has become a place for fans to discover music and also learn more about the artists they love. While artists have always been able to use video creatively to promote live performances, YouTube and Ticketmaster have added a direct tie between an artists’ music videos and tour dates.

Thanks to the recent partnership, YouTube has begun featuring upcoming tour dates under official music videos on artist channels and Vevo channels.
