Google Search Results Now Include Concert Dates

Are you one of those people who seems to always find out about concerts just a bit too late? If so, then I've got good news for you: Google will now automatically list relevant concert dates when you search for your favorite musicians.

As Kavi Goel, a Google product manager, explains in a blog post, Google search results conveniently now include upcoming concert tour dates right under an artist's official website. The tour dates are listed only if the artist will be appearing near your location within the next few months through, so no worries about having search results flooded with distracting data about distant concerts.

The upcoming concert date information is aggregated from several different websites and comes with links which will allow you to purchase tickets. No fuss, no muss.

Now the only thing that's missing is a button which will dispatch a Google employee who'll camp out in front of tour buses in order to collect autographs for you.
