Totally utterly useless, at least for US Locations. Tried around 5 well know artists or events and it came up with nothing. Tried by zip code and major cities. Still nothing.

Well actually I'm not surprised it's totally useless - there is something very odd going on with last.fm search results and I'm trying to get to the bottom of it (through their developer forums)

Apologies to all those who live in places it can't find...

Thank you for your acknowledgment and taking ownership of this issue. I find it satisfying to see developers take ownership and responsibility for the products that they produce along with creating confidence that the developer is serious about producing a quality product with a respectable level of support.

The issues with location searching should now be much much improved - though likely at the expense of some speed. There are still plenty of other things to work on and to be ironed out mind. Your thoughts and feedback are welcome as ever!

Sorry but it is only slightly better. I put in the name of a popular group that I have tickets for in San Jose that is also appearing in Oakland in May. I am halfway between the 2 cities. The widget only listed a Virginia appearance for the group and only listed San Francisco events when I entered my city - no San Jose events.

So at this point it is of little use to me as it does not seem to be able to reliably inform me of events in my area that I might be interested in. However it does have promise and hopefully a future version might be more accurate and complete.

Oh well... Thanks for trying again.... Will carry on working on it ;-)
