An interesting - and free - iTunes utility that helps music fans keep track of tour dates for their favourite bands is available now.

Available for both Mac and PC, iConcertCal will scan a user's music library and then search a series of tour-date websites in order to deliver an up-to-date list of upcoming gigs.

The application can be set up to search worldwide or on a local area basis. Results are presented within a custom-built iTunes visualiser.

The application will automatically update its gig schedule once every week.
