June 8, 2009

From performances by your favorite chart-topping artists to free local concerts, Livekick helps you never miss a live concert again

NEW YORK, June 8 /PRNewswire/ — Livekick, the live concerts recommendation and tickets search engine, announced today the official launch of its platform at http://livekick.com. The site, which is free to use, helps music fans easily discover local live concerts based on artists they like and find the best and cheapest available tickets online. The Livekick search engine includes more than 75,000 concerts in the U.S., more than 20,000 artists performing, close to 40,000 venues, and near real-time updated ticket pricing information from the most popular concert tickets web sites.

Anyone can easily create a free account at http://livekick.com and add their favorite artists in seconds by pointing Livekick to anywhere they engage with music, online or on their computers. You can import artists from your iTunes library, computer music library, MySpace Music, Last.fm, Pandora, iLike, blip.fm or Rhapsody accounts. You can also add artists by name or by selecting artists Livekick suggests. Livekick creates a musical profile based on your favorite artists and automatically imports new artists from your music services as you listen to new music online.

Based on your musical profile, and where you live or travel to, Livekick makes sure that you are always updated about artists’ tours that are relevant to you, and about special promos, tickets presales and more. Livekick automatically sends you newly announced concert recommendations via email, Twitter or personalized RSS feeds and you can also check your concert recommendations on http://livekick.com .

Once you find a concert to go to, Livekick makes it easy for you to find and to buy the best available tickets online. The Livekick tickets search engine continuously scans the most popular direct and reseller ticket web sites, including TicketMaster, LiveNation, StubHub, Tickets.com, TicketWeb, TicketCity, TicketsNow, eBay, and MySpace Music, to find the cheapest currently available tickets.

“We developed Livekick to help music fans never miss a live concert again,” said Aviv Eyal, co-founder of Livekick. “Our live concert recommendation alerts ensure you’re among the first to know when an artist you like is performing near you, and our tickets search engine provides you with the most affordable ticket options available via all of the major ticketing sites. Livekick is a valuable one-stop destination for music fans and anyone who’s looking to make the most of their entertainment dollars.”

For music enthusiasts, Livekick has additional features that make it the ultimate one-stop destination for live concert information. Your Concerts provides a personalized concert calendar with your favorite artists’ performances, which you can easily export to your Outlook or iCal calendars; Your Artists tracks your favorite artists with complete tour listings, user-generated videos from their live concerts, links to artists’ web sites, and more; the Livekick Desktop Widget, downloadable to a PC or a Mac, automatically scans your computer daily for new music files and adds new artists you listen to on your computer to your Livekick account; and social network sharing enables you to share concerts with friends via Facebook and MySpace.

Web site developers can use the free Livekick API, available at http://livekick.com/api/ to add rich, local and up-to-date concerts and tour information to their web applications. Utilizing the API, CBS Radio Online provides radio listeners with a link to Livekick to find out about live concerts by artists they hear on the radio, and to find the cheapest tickets available online.

Livekick was founded by Aviv Eyal and Yarden Tadmor in May 2008 and soft-launched in beta in Fall 2008. Livekick was recognized by AlwaysOn as an OnHollywood 100 winner in 2009.
