Shows by Sale Date?

List of concerts/shows by date tickets go on sale?

Wondering if there's a website (or other resource) that lists concerts by the date their tickets go on sale. I imagine they might not want to do this because it attracts scalpers, but I always seem to find out about concerts (big ones that sell out) way too late to get tickets for anything close to face value.

Does this exist?

Aside from a website (of which I know of none), some ways that may help you find out about shows ahead of time:

1. Visit ticketmaster,, live nation, etc. They often send out emails announcing when tickets for shows are going on sale.

2. See if your favorite club has a website and/or an email list you can join. They usually announce new shows and secret/advance sales of tickets.

3. Go to Pollstar and search by city, venue, or artists to see if what shows are scheduled. A lot of times the tour dates are announced in advance of ticket sales; that way, you can get a heads up and call the venue and see when tickets go on sale.

Not sure of your location or preferred music genre, but in the LA area the modern rock station KROQ has a free "Street Team" mailing list that regularly announces presales and passwords. Maybe your local radio station has something similar. Also many bands have their own mailing lists/twitters that announce new shows.

Also, check out music blogs like or (if you like indie-ish rock) who regularly aggregate new tour announcements and such.
