If you enjoy live entertainment, you need a smartphone. At least that’s what some in the mobile industry argue. And once you learn more about the argument, it becomes exceeding difficult to disagree.
Take, for example, the team behind ScoreBig.com, a service that allows consumers to save money on tickets to their favorite pro and college sports, concerts, and theater events.
ScoreBig has just announced the launch of ScoreBig Daily, a free app for iPhone and iPod touch that gives users immediate access to great seats at hot live events in their city that night.
It’s the type of access one might not enjoy or even be aware of without such an app.
Just like ScoreBig.com, every ticket on ScoreBig Daily will be below retail price, and will never have any processing, delivery or convenience fee of any kind, the company says, once again underscoring the relationship between mobile and live entertainment.
With just a few taps, ScoreBig Daily lets people pick the number of seats they want for one of a handful of events each night, and then pick the price they want to pay for that event.
“Ticket prices to live events have skyrocketed by about 70% over the last decade, which means many Americans are getting priced out of seeing their favorite teams or bands play,” said Adam Kanner, ScoreBig.com CEO. “With our new ScoreBig Daily App for iPhone and iPod touch, our goal is to change that. We want fans back in the seats, cheering and singing along with their family or friends. By giving them easy and immediate access to the best seats on the day of the game or concert, fans will be able to save a bundle and actually afford to take their family to a great live event. We’re helping to make tickets affordable again.”
