Cross-posted from the YouTube Artist Blog
At YouTube, we understand the importance of helping artists find ways to build deeper connections with their fans — the ones who not only watch and listen to videos, but are also willing to pay to see live performances. And, with live concerts becoming a bigger driver of revenue for artists, we want to help artists reach those fans, keep them updated about upcoming shows, and sell more tickets.
We’ve been experimenting with ways we can offer a ticketing experience to fans and we’re excited to announce our first ticketing partnership with Ticketmaster. Starting today, we will begin featuring hundreds of artist’s upcoming U.S. tour dates on their YouTube videos. Fans enjoying an artist’s official music video on YouTube can now learn about upcoming concert listings and with a simple click, go to Ticketmaster to purchase tickets.
YouTube’s massive fan base paired with Ticketmaster’s global roster of concerts and security of verified tickets means we can easily connect a fan’s discovery of music on YouTube to their ability to purchase concert tickets.
We’re just getting started. We’ll be rolling out this feature to all artists who have Ticketmaster shows in North America with plans to expand globally. And, as part of our ongoing commitment to support artists, we’ll continue to find additional ways to make meaningful fan and artist connections.

Are you experiencing screen problems on your DROID Turbo 2? The picture comes from an unhappy owner who posted a new issue in Motorola’s forums. People are complaining about a vertical green line appearing on the display of their new handset.
So far just a few have reported the appearance of the inexplicable green line throughout the display. One owner wrote that the line began widening over time and that he was forced into getting it replaced. Motorola is keeping an eye on the issue, but has not reported anything just yet. Verizon workers are aware and will reportedly replace the device so long as you’re under warranty. If you’re experiencing this malfunction, we strongly recommend reaching out to your local Verizon store and Motorola’s customer care as soon as possible to get a replacement sent out.
Is your DROID Turbo 2 having similar issues? We’d love to hear from you in the comments down below.
