Apple's Shazam App Now Includes Info on Local Concerts

Apple today announced that its Shazam app has a new "Concerts" feature, which is designed to allow Shazam users to find concerts that are happening in their local area.

shazam concert app
The Concerts section can be found in My Music, with recommendations based on each user's Shazam history. Apple says that Shazam users can browse, search, and filter by artist, date, and location, plus they can explore trending concerts.

Events can be saved in the app with the option to set reminders about upcoming shows, view tickets, and unlock concert exclusives from select artists. These exclusives can include new watch faces and wallpapers, along with behind the scenes video, tour photos, and show set lists.

Shazam's new Concert functionality follows new concert options that were added in iOS 17. Searching for an artist in Spotlight shows information about upcoming concerts with options for purchasing tickets and getting information on venue details.

Shazam can be downloaded from the App Store for free, and the song discovery features are also integrated directly into iOS.

I want the action button start recording feature while in pocket back.

Let's say Im in a conversation that I want to stealth record. Before this update I could simply start it but putting my hand in my pocket. No one is the wiser.

Now I have to pull out my phone and potentially alert the other party of my intentions.

We should have to option to turn this on or off.
Is that a Shazam in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

What a half job!
This needs to be part of the Apple Music app like Spotify, so you can see favourite artists or artist you listen to if they’re playing near you!
Also add in notifications for concerts nearby for favourite artists. Come on Apple.
