LOS ANGELES--StubHub, the ticket reselling subsidiary of eBay Inc., is launching its StubHub Music app nationwide as it goes after core music fans in a challenge to Live Nation in the concert business.
The app, which launched in San Francisco in June, expanded to major cities nationwide Tuesday. The app — currently only for Apple iPhones — scans your music library and recommends upcoming shows by your favorite artists or similar ones. A radius dial allows you to set how far you're willing to travel to see a show, up to 150 miles.
