The tour schedule now appears in a new section under the description on an artist's official video and includes a direct link to Ticketmaster to purchase tickets for the events. Artists already using the new feature include Halsey, Lady Gaga and the Killers, who all have upcoming tour dates linked to Ticketmaster’s website on their videos.
