Website for ticket alerts?

Please help me find a website that notifies you when a ticket goes on sale by providing them with a link of the page you will be purchasing the ticket from.

SonicLiving has historically been the perfect thing for this, with email alerts containing links that easily get you to the ticket purchase site. However, it was sold a little while back, went down for a while, and only recently came back from the dead with a still-under-construction facelift. My account still works and the calendar is well-seeded with new events, so it's still probably worth a try.

I've had good luck with the Bands in Town facebook app. It requires you to like all the artists pages on facebook, but I grabbed tickets during pre-sale periods for artists I loved but never actually signed up to the email list/twitter for, but had likes from when the old 'list of musicians you love' field in facebook was converted into page likes/follows.

Bandsintown is also an Android/iOS app that can scan your music library for the artists you listen to, and track when they go on tour. I get email notifications for every new concert announcement which has made me much more likely to hit up a show! Ticket purchase links are included.

Response by poster: I'm looking for more of a site that you can add the page url of where the tickets will be selling and it alerts you when they are on sale. Not for a specific artist. For example, I tend to purchase tickets often from ResidentAdvisor. They post events months ahead and then a month or two before the event the tickets go on sale. And I am usually checking everyday until they start selling them.
