Revolutionizing the music space, TikTok’s collaboration with Ticketmaster has brought a significant change. Introduced in the U.S. in Aug. 2022, this partnership allowed TikTok users to effortlessly purchase concert tickets directly through the app.

By Dec. 2023, this feature expanded to 20 new markets, including the UK, Ireland, Australia, Germany, France, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, and Sweden, offering users the opportunity to buy tickets directly from select performers’ accounts on TikTok.

TikTok has reported successful utilization of this feature by both established and emerging artists, comedians, and sports teams, with names like Niall Horan, The Kooks, Burna Boy, and Shania Twain. Several other prominent names including Demi Lovato, One Republic, Usher, the Backstreet Boys, and WWE have also embraced this feature.

Despite facing criticism for long queues for sold-out tickets and an unregulated reselling system, Ticketmaster’s influence in the live music industry persists, exemplified by the global reach of TikTok x Ticketmaster.
