A New Concert Tab for Artist Pages

Your artist page is your homepage on Spotify. It’s where all of your music lives — and it’s where fans can discover more about who you are and what’s happening with you.

Today we’re adding a new “Concerts” tab to your artist page so fans can see all of your upcoming tour dates in one place. We already let fans know when you’re playing near them via personalized concert recommendations and a geo-targeted “On Tour” section. And now it’s easy for anyone to find your next stop on the road.

The “Concerts” tab is rolling out today in the Spotify desktop app. All tour dates are automatically pulled from Songkick. You can update your listings using Songkick’s Tourbox or by emailing
