Ticket resale site TicketChoice has revamped its site, adding a calendar-style listing of upcoming events where people are selling spare tickets and tools to promote those sales on Twitter, Facebook and other sites.
When we first looked at TicketChoice back in March, it was a pretty bare-bones affair and there weren't a huge number of events on offer, but the basic concept—letting individuals resell tickets they can no longer use—was a useful filler for a market gap. The volume of shows on offer seems to have risen considerably since then, though that might partly be because of the redesigned site now has a listing of currently available tickets on the front page. As ever with secondary markets, this isn't necessarily going to score you a bargain; on the events I checked, ticket prices were generally higher than market price, but that's probably inevitable with sold-out performances.
The other major change is the introduction of sharing buttons to promote specific ticket sales via Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Windows Live and FriendFeed. You can also grab embed code to place general ticket listings in your blog, and there's an RSS feed if you want to keep track of what's on sale via your favourite reader. If you can't find tickets for an event you want, TicketChoice will also show search results from eBay.
Listing and selling tickets on TicketChoice is free. As we pointed out last time, caution is sensible if you plan on reselling your own tickets, as some events and venues specifically bar resale.
