Now it’s easier for fans to view your whole tour at a glance and book their hotel in a few easy steps. All you have to do is add your events–we’ll do the rest.
Artist pages now feature an event map powered by Stay22 showcasing all of your upcoming shows. Organized by date and location, fans can easily navigate the map and expand events they want to see details for. The map also shows fans the best hotel deals in the area and takes them right to booking sites so they can get to shows as easily as possible.
Fans can view the whole tour, or select dates to see shows within a certain range and hotels in the corresponding locations.
*This is an extension of an existing tool which shows hotel deals on specific event pages. The new feature appears on artist pages, rather than event pages, and consolidates all listed events and hotel deals into one map.
