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 artist. A radius dial allows you to set how far you're willing to travel to see a show, up to 150 miles.
    
In many cases, it will direct fans to StubHub to buy tickets that are being resold. Sometimes, if the show isn't sold out, it will also direct customers to other ticket-sellers, like Brown Paper Tickets or AXS, but not always.
