Google Search Results Now Show Concert Listings

In a handy little addition for music fans, Google search results will now show upcoming concerts when you search for an artist.

Starting immediately your Google search results will display nearby concert listings gathered by Google's magnificent data-mining bots.

To find upcoming concert tour dates, we aggregate relevant data for events from multiple websites and show it under the band's official website with links to the event sites where you can find out more about the event or purchase tickets.

Concert search results, like those for election outcomes, sports scores, and airline flights, deliver you the information you're looking for rather than directing you elsewhere. That's useful but there's also great potential for accidental discoveries here. It's heartbreaking to accidentally miss a show because you didn't know it was happening. Music fans should be grateful that Google's new feature makes it that much more likely you'll catch the show. [Google via The Next Web]
