Finding Nearby Events with Google Maps
Concert Mapper is a new Google Maps based application to find and book tickets for concerts, theatre or sporting events.
If you share your location with Concert Mapper the map will zoom in on your location and show you nearby venues. If you mouse-over a venue upcoming events will appear at the top of the map and a YouTube video of the artist currently appearing will load in the map sidebar.
It is possible to search the map by location or search for a specific performer, artist or event. Currently Concert Mapper has listings for over 6,000 venues and around 40,000 events. If you find an event that you wish to attend you can click through on the map and book tickets via SeatGeek.
