Google says that it's rolling this feature out for a few hundred artists that use Ticketmaster for tickets at first.

"With live concerts becoming a bigger driver of revenue for artists, we want to help artists reach those fans, keep them updated about upcoming shows, and sell more tickets", said a statement from the YouTube Music team posted to the official artists blog. Tapping the shows link will expand a list of tour dates, starting with the show soonest and nearest the user.

YouTube today announced a partnership with Ticketmaster that will see the Google-owned video network connecting fans with concert tickets and tour information directly on artists' YouTube video pages. The feature works in the standard YouTube app but not the YouTube Music app as of yet. The company also hints this is the first of other planned features focused on artist-to-fan connections, but it didn't detail those plans. In addition to removing videos that directly preach hate or seek to incite violence, the company will remove videos of named terrorists - unless the content is journalistic or educational in nature, such as documentaries and news reports. To view more or purchase, simply press "Tickets" to be directed to Ticketmaster's full website.

Music videos consistently are among the most popular content on YouTube, which boasts more than 1.5 billion monthly visitors. MTV lost the "music" portion to reality shows some time ago, and YouTube is now the main source for watching an artist's music videos.

It's worth stressing here that this doesn't mean tickets will be available next to any music-related video on YouTube - those grainy fan-shot clips won't be used to sell tickets to the next gig on a tour. The listings appear in a new section underneath the video description on the official videos on their channels, on both desktop and mobile apps.
