Freeware Friday: Concert guides for Android

OnTour and JamBase help you stay updated on tour dates for your favorite bands and musicians.

The concert season is finally upon us! Summer is a popular time to head out, soak up the sun, and, of course, plan concert trips to see your favorite bands and singers. Whether you're into Bieber or Jagger, these apps will help you track events and schedule concerts to see your faves perform.

On Tour lets you discover new artists and track concerts as well as read band bios. The app will generate a list of concert tour dates and events based on your interests and existing music files. The interface has an easy-to-use design; swipe left and right to switch between event details, read singer biographies, and check out a list of bands that are similar to your musical taste.

JamBase is another useful alternative app for tracking concerts and other musical events, but focuses more on local performances. JamBase finds live shows that are specific to your current location and enables you to quickly plan ahead. In addition to having easy access to your calendar and maps to the venue, JamBase also allows users to track the artists' other shows and offers direct links to buy tickets.
