LOS ANGELES, Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Live Nation upgrades the Live Nation iPhone app to version 1.3 driving more than 1 million downloads in the past week to become the # 1 Free Music App on iTunes and Top 20 Free App in all iTunes categories.  Live Nation's iPhone App has been downloaded 5 million times, and is consistently in Top 20 ranking of the iTunes music apps category, since its debut in November 2010.


"The Live Nation mobile apps are quickly becoming the new preferred point of purchase for fans, showing tremendous growth patterns amongst our mobile base," said Michael Rapino, President and Chief Executive Officer of Live Nation Entertainment.  "The mobile app recently broke new ground by outselling traditional outlets for a Paul McCartney show on sale in Western Canada."

Live Nation iPhone App v1.3 new features include:

Passbook Support - Users now have the option of moving tickets purchased in the Live Nation iPhone app to the new iPhone Passbook application.  Seventy Live Nation venues currently accept Passbook's 2D barcode for mobile entry into a venue. 

For a list of venues that are passbook supported visit or visit the "Help" section under "More" in the Live Nation App.

Improved Search - The search function is now faster than ever. Search results also return the event closest to you and additional tour dates by that artist. A new radius slider quickly limits search results by the user's preferred radiance from 1-500 miles.   

Password Reset -  Passwords can now be changed immediately within the app.

Location Change - The app automatically targets your location, while enabling you to change your location directly and easily from the home screen.

The Live Nation iPhone app provides immediate, on-the-go access to Live Nation concerts, Ticketmaster ticketed concerts and additional independent local shows throughout North America.
