Apple may soon be taking on Ticketmaster after the Company submitted an application to patent a new ticketing system for desktop PC’s and iPhones users called “Concert Ticket +.”

The new Apple technology lets users buy concert and sporting event tickets within iTunes and then Apple is also value adding the system by building in additional features such as the ability to buy a live recording of the event, or a video recording of a game.

They are also proposing coupons for discounted refreshments or merchandise.

The patent also outlines a concept for a series of kiosks enabled with a technology called near field communications, or NFC. NFC would require a turnstile or kiosk at the venue is equipped with a chip that can recognise when a Concert Ticket iPhone is near, and swap data with it.

 That would allow users to simply swipe their phone near a turnstile to gain entry, or swipe it near a cash register to receive a discount. However it also requires venues to install special equipment, and that’s been something that has stalled the mobile ticketing effort for years.

Other services listed in the patent applications include the delivery of song lyrics, venue maps and directions, prepaid and discounted parking, and exclusive content.

Apple believe that the technology can be used by conference organisers, amusement parks and even wedding organisers to communicate with a given audience.
