Online concert archive unveiled

If you’re one of those people who looks at a set of live listings and sees a chance to gather shit quality footage of your favourite band on a mobile phone, a new website will soon make your actions less infuriatingly pointless.

Songkick.com launches today, with the aim of documenting everything that ever happens at any gig held from now ‘til forever by providing a place for you to upload set lists, photographs and videos online.

It acknowledges the past too, boasting a pre-loaded archive of “one million concerts and complete tour histories of thousands of artists”, with data stretching back as far as Bob Dylan’s performance at the home of Karen Wallace in May 1960.
