If you’ve ever had to leave a concert early only to know half your ticket (and money) is going to waste, there is now an app to fix that.
New FlipTix is letting fans re-sell tickets at significantly reduced prices after leaving an event and is the only way vacated seats can be re-sold after a concert begins. After the BETA launch, fans will be able to press an “I’m gone” button and re-sell their ticket to anyone nearby who wants to slip in and catch the end of the show. The ticket will be transferred electronically by sending the new buyer a barcode for their ticket. Fans reselling their tickets can receive cash back, gift cards, t-shirts or discounts on other ticketing packages, depending on the event promoter. Currently traditional tickets sellers sell unused tickets at a premium price and stop selling once the show begins.
FlipTix is exclusively launching at BLK Live on June 30 for its BETA launch with a lineup of four concerts.
June 30: Protege, 7 p.m.
July 6: Pat Travers Band, 6 p.m.
July 14: Pure Prairie League, 6 p.m.
July 27: Lies, Deceit & Treachery, 6 p.m.
To take part in the BETA launch, download the FlipTix App and register. On the night of each show, anyone who has downloaded the app and is within a few miles of BLK Live will receive a notification on their phone (iPhone and Android) alerting them of ticket availability. Click the “order” button and then get in to the show at a great discount.
Bonus: Download and register by midnight on Friday, June 29 and be eligible to receive two free tickets to the Protege show.
CEO of FlipTix, Jaime Siegel, and his team founded the app and algorithm to make “flipping” possible. Siegel recently spent 16 years at Sony as VP of Intellectual Property and is also a member of the Board of Trustees of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
FlipTix will soon be available across the country at sports stadiums for pro and college sports, large and small concert venues, and at major concert festivals.
