It appears that Tinder and Live Nation have swiped right for each other! The dating app and events promoter & venue operator company have teamed up to implement a new initiative called “epic first date”. The promotion offers Tinder users $30 tickets to a number of different tours in select U.S. cities, providing a more entertaining & less awkward date idea, as opposed to the age-old mini-golf or movie night.
Tinder users wanting to take advantage of the offer are required to swipe right on tour profile cards in the app. Users can then follow the link to learn more information about the tours and tickets. Tickets to a number of artists’ shows from the electronic music & Hip-Hop realms are on offer, as fans will be able to select from the likes of Meek Mill and Future, Logic, A$AP Ferg, Lukas Graham and Machine Gun Kelly, as well as The Chainsmokers, Gesaffelstein, Gryffin and the Alchemy Tour featuring NGHTMRE, SLANDER, Seven Lions and The Glitch Mob. The promotion is reportedly set to run throughout the month of October.
While the “epic first date” offer seems to be an ingenious idea, it’s not the first time the two companies have united. Earlier this year, the two teamed up on another initiative called “Festival Mode”, which involved allowing users to match up with their fellow festival-goers ahead of this summer’s festival season.
