Spotify says that users can now get personalized concert recommendations, in addition to personalized music streaming.

The streaming service has rolled out a “Concert” feature for iPhone and Android users that shows when a user’s favorite artists are going to be in town. These results are based on music that users stream.

Concerts can be accessed via the browse tab, and once selected, users adjust their location if they are traveling, for example.

The event dates are aggregated via Songkick, which also helps users search for tickets for these events.

This announcement comes after streaming rival Pandora announced its partnership with Ticketfly, making its own move into the live events space.
