Live events discovery hub Bandsintown is bringing a new revenue model to the livestream space, hoping to capitalize on the industry’s rapid growth. Today (Jan. 12), it launches Bandsintown PLUS, a subscription-based service where fans pony up $9.99 per month (after a seven-day free trial) to access more than 25 exclusive livestreamed shows, interviews and original series monthly. The app scans the music on your iPhone and your FB likes, then helps you find local concerts for those bands and others like them. You can even RSVP to events, synching with your own calendar, making sure you never miss a show. • Browse upcoming concerts for any artist or city and buy tickets directly in the app.
