Seatwave Launches Gig App Timbre in UK

timbre appTicket marketplace Seatwave has acquired the concert listing and booking app firm Timbre and is launching the service in the UK.

The app enables music fans to find gigs and listen to artists before buying tickets directly from venues and primary ticket sellers, as well as accessing sold-out gigs through Seatwaves existing marketplace.

Timbre claims the UKs largest live music database, with 18,000 gigs listed at any one time on average. The app is designed to keep fans up to date with tours by their favourite artists while enabling them to discover new acts. Timbre was acquired by Seatwave from Boston-based agency Intrepid Pursuits earlier this year and has been working since February to prepare for the UK launch.

“With Timbre we want to help music fans to go to more gigs and create more live music memories,” said Ajay Chowdhury, CEO of Seatwave Group. “The Timbre app offers the whole package from browsing gigs, to playing tracks and purchasing tickets from multiple sources.

“By using Timbre, fans will have the UKs most comprehensive live music listings at their fingertips, removing the hassle from planning a night out. This is the first of a wave of new mobile products that we plan to launch.”
