Every concert-goer has had at least one Ticketmaster horror story, so now the company is looking to make the ticket-buying experience less painful by integrating with Facebook.

On Monday, Ticketmaster announced that it would start selling select event tickets directly on Facebook by the end of April. When browsing an official event page on the Facebook iOS and Android app, you’ll be able to place your Ticketmaster order by clicking on the new “Buy Tickets” link.

In addition, you’ll have the option to buy from Ticketmaster in the Facebook Messenger app via its experimental virtual assistant M, which can even send you a photo of your digital tickets before an event.
