Apple Music and Apple Maps Launching New Concert Features Today

Apple today announced new concert discovery features for Apple Music and Apple Maps that will be rolling out around the world beginning today.

Concert Discovery Feature Feature
Apple Music is getting a new Set Lists page that spotlights "a selection of major tours, letting fans listen to set lists and read about the productions."

Apple Maps is gaining 40 new guides curated by Apple Music editors that "highlight the best venues to experience live music" around the world, with initial featured cities including Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York City, San Francisco, Berlin, London, Paris, Vienna, Tokyo, Melbourne, Sydney, and Mexico City.

In both Apple Music and Apple Maps, users will now be able to browse upcoming performances directly in the apps via Shazam's concert discovery feature.

Why is this an Apple-picked list of 5 mainstream bands that Apple loves and not live tours from the bands you personally listen to on Apple Music?

Another feature that will set Apple Music apart, which is great. But Apple continues to ignore fundamental features like crossfade, EQ, performance improvements, etc. etc. that users have been asking for years at this point.

Obligatory: Hopefully iOS 17 shall pave the way for better AM and Siri experiences.

Big bands in capital cities don’t need any extra promotion. It’s the small bands in small town with small door prices that are on my playlists I’m interested in hearing about.

This doesn’t set Apple Music apart. Spotify has had this feature for years. The other month I used it to learn about and buy a Tomorrow X Together concert ticket. I’m guessing Spotify got a cut of the sale.

Either way, custom EQ is a badly lacking feature. I know Apple want to finely tune our listening experience, but sometimes I just want that Xtra Bass (read: extreme bass) feature that Sony offers.

Hey Apple...
Instead of adding features and features, how about fixing the core functionality of the music app?
Like tracks not starting, lag, errors, missing album in search and a way to actually discover new music based on your taste?
For real...
