You’ve matched with your perfect partner on Tinder, now you probably want to wow them by giving them an experience that’s dark, smelly, loud and best of all cheap. Or an “epic first date”, as the dating app and Live Nation are calling it. The two companies have expanded their partnership to flog off cheap tickets to a selection of concerts in the US.

Tinder and Live Nation first collaborated on the app’s ‘festival mode’ earlier this year, which helped users meet others at various festivals. Now they’re teaming up to offer $30 tickets to twelves shows in selected cities in the States, headlined by artists including The Chainsmokers, A$AP Ferg, Logic, Future, Young Thug and Gesaffelstein.

To access the promotion, Tinder users just need to swipe right on the featured tour profiles when they pop up, as if they actually wanted to date the concert. Once you’ve bought tickets, you don’t even have to take a date. You could take a friend who doesn’t use Tinder and doesn’t know what a cheapskate you are.
