TORONTO, May 16, 2014 /CNW/ - Canadian indie-powerhouse Dine Alone Records recently launched a cutting edge mobile app in time for City and Colour's sold-out show at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. The cutting edge technology was such a huge hit with fans that Dine Alone plans to bring the City and Colour Live Mobile App experience to Green's upcoming shows in Edmonton on May 20 and Calgary on May 21.
The first to employ Bluetooth Low Energy iBeacon technology in a concert setting, the official app gives fans an opportunity to automatically be eligible to win in- app giveaways throughout the show via Bluetooth Low Energy powered iBeacon's deployed around select venues across Canada. Fans with Bluetooth enabled smartphone's who walk by an active iBeacon at the right time are randomly rewarded with prizes. Concert-goers will also be able to interact with other City and Colour fans from around the world throughout the night by joining the ongoing in- app Twitter conversation as well as access City and Colour songs, videos, news, upcoming tour dates and more.
Over 3500 people downloaded the app in time for the Toronto show and 45 prizes were given out on the spot at the ACC to ecstatic fans who quickly took to social media to share their excitement. Prizes included ticket upgrades to floor seating within the first 10 rows, suite access, and autographed City and Colour merchandise.
One very happy winner received a grand prize, a Martin guitar signed by Dallas Green, delivered right to her seat at the venue. Now Edmonton and Calgary fans will be able to share in the excitement. The app "City and Colour Live" is available as a free iPhone and Android download through the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store.
