I've seen two different artists who both go by the same name, and are grouped together for statistics, understandably. Maybe some way to separate them, such as where they're from?1 vote
Yes, the way to do this is to add the location in parenthesis after the band name of the smaller band. For example, say there was a bigger band named Mono, for the Mono in Japan you’d enter it as “Mono (JP)”.
You can do this yourself by editing the concert(s) that the smaller band played, removing the band, and adding the new band with the location in parenthesis.
More of a defect report ;)
Make the 'Cancel' button after taking a 'Save and Add Another' action on the Bucketlist page take you back to the 'Bucketlist' index page. Currently, it takes you back to the 'Add to Bucketlist' form.
Haven't tested any other spots like this (if there even are), but I'd bet it's a common issue.1 vote
This is fixed :)
Copy/paste table view
I was already maintaining a spreadsheet for my concerts. When I found this site, I reformatted my spreadsheet so I could import it easily. I still maintain my spreadsheet to keep track of future shows and additional info.
It would be cool to have a table format copy/paste import so I can just copy the new concerts I haven't imported yet and paste them into a table input form on your site.1 vote
The easiest way to do that would be to do an export from Concert Archives (‘Export to Spreadsheet’ link in the menu) and then you can easily copy/paste the concerts from your Concert Archives spreadsheet into your other spreadsheet.
Be able to post pics of you and the bands if you have met them1 vote
You can currently do this by uploading the photo on the Concert page.
The "not seen" feature seems to only work for bands you've never seen. If you've never seen them and click on the artist, it says you've never seen them. However, if you have before, it counts the time you marked them as "not seen" toward the total times seen.1 vote
This was fixed last week. Thanks for letting me know!
It seems that there are some bands that have two entries for the what is clearly the same band. It might be nice to have a feature to request to merge two names, so that everything already entered under an incorrect name gets added to the band's real name. One example: "NOTS" and "Nots (Memphis)" are clearly the same band, since NOTS is from Memphis, TN, but their band name is definitely not "Nots (Memphis)".1 vote
You can already request bands/venues/locations be merged by using the ‘Report Issue’ link in the navigation.
Thank you for taking the time submit this anyway though :)
Cannot delete a concert chosen by accident (ie chose wrong date, location)1 vote
If you chose the wrong concert, you can remove it from your archive by hitting the ‘Remove From Your Archive’ button on the concert page.
somewhere to add your individual, personal concert experience/memories that is not shown on the public concert page!!1 vote
You can now post ‘Private’ comments on concerts (as well as on band, venue, and location pages). More details here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/24907109
Using a similar format to the export file, allow for import of concert lists. Many of us have long lists of concerts, this would be much easier and quicker than manually entering them all.19 votes
This has been added! You can now import concerts into your archive from a CSV spreadsheet. More details and a link are included in the Release Notes: https://www.concertarchives.org/release-notes
Merge multiple listings of the same artist due to misspelling or typos9 votes
I released a feature called ‘Aliases’ a couple of weeks ago that helps solve this. We can now set ‘Aliases’ for bands, locations, and venues behind the scenes. For example, the official spelling is “blink-182”, but a lot of people enter it as “Blink 182”, which caused there to be duplicate listings. Now the “blink-182” listing has an alias of “Blink 182” (amongst others), so any time somebody enters “Blink 182” it’ll automatically get corrected and applied to “blink-182”. This works for Locations (“Portland, OR” vs “Portland, Oregon”) and Venues as well.
You can email me a list of aliases to be entered to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the ‘Report Issue’ link in the site navigation.
Fix the order of the bands by the way you input them, sometimes the headliner would not appear first9 votes
Allow me to specify which artists I saw at a festival so my artist counts are more correct37 votes
This is already possible by creating a new Concert from scratch by entering the info manually rather than using the Past Concert Search Engine.
One other good tip is to create a separate Concert for each day of the festival and the system will do a better job at finding the artist setlists.
If I'm looking at my own archive and click on the name of a band, I'd like it to redirect me to that band's page, not to my own stats about them. (Or if it must first redirect me to my own stats about them, then from THERE I'd like to be able to click a link to visit their page.)
This feels like a more natural thing to do than going up to the "browse all archives" button and just typing in a random band you've thought of.3 votes
I added some additional links like you mentioned from the “user’s band page” to the main band page. Hopefully that helps. Thanks for the suggestion!
A Spotify / YouTube integration that matches either specific concerts or tours to Concerts and Bands seen would be fantastic.4 votes
You can now play the setlist of a concert via Spotify! Just click the ‘Play setlist on Spotify’ button next to the setlist on the concert page. Hopefully YouTube integration will be coming soon too :)
When I click on a concert I attended it’d be nice to see what your it was from. This could be synced from setlist as well if it’s not on song kick.1 vote
The concert’s Title field is to be used for the Tour Name if there isn’t any other specific concert name (like a festival name for example).
Be able to combine the same band name so there would be no more duplicate names3 votes
If you find duplicates, please use the ‘Report Issue’ link in the navigation and we can combine them.
Currently only setlists for bands playing on the first day of a multiday concert entry are displayed. To correctly link other bands' setlists, you need to specify different date.3 votes
This was fixed a few months back. The system will now check for setlists for all days of a multi-day concert.
Patreon only allows for subscription type donations. some people aren’t comfortable with that but would still like to contribute3 votes

Add Opening Acts for a specific concert3 votes
This is complete! You can add all of the bands that performed at a concert and re-arrange them into the order that they played.
Ideally I would like to add planning concert I have tickets already. It can be just a wishlist, or calendar view. Then I would like to click on Archive button to move particular concert.1 vote
I just added quite a few new features around ‘upcoming concerts’. You can see more details on the Release Notes here: https://www.concertarchives.org/release-notes
I also added the “Bucket List” feature a few months ago that is like a wishlist.
Thanks for the suggestions!
