I am adding an event, an my venue (which is new) cannot be found.  When will I be able to add it?  I have 3 concerts lined up and would like to properly list the events so they can be found by others.

What I do in those cases is add the event and in the Additional Info field I add all de details of the venue including address website phone number etc.

That is what I did.  Still, people will not be able to find the event by locality because that feature is disabled.  Actually I am not able to find the event at all anywhere in the system after adding it.  Does the event have to be approved first?  I am really surprised that you cannot find events based on the artist.  I would have thought that future events that artists are tagged in would show up on the page after you search and select an artist.

You should be able to see the event listed on the artist's page, or on your user page, if you've marked yourself as attending or interested. Unfortunately, an events search or a feature like related events isn't available here yet.

Venues is something we'd like to do, but I can't tell you when that would happen.

So how do venues get added to the system, if they cannot be added on your website?  Do you pull feeds from another site?  I see other venues in the local area, and ours is not listed, so no one can find our events if they search by region.

Are there any news on this? I'm especially interested if you can merge venues if they are identical (same name, same location). I have found several duplicates or even misspelled venues.

This is really the last BIG remaining issues with events for me. Venues (both being able to see all events at a particular venue aka Venue Pages and also being able to add/merge venues)

Help, please (I can no longer comment on teh thread with the feature announcement):

I've been trying to add a new venue for the past three days, and it just won't let me save at the last step (where is says to make sure the map is correct, but I never see a map, in any browser I've tried). I want to add the Tori Amos concert on November 3rd.
