iLike reports 1 million subscribers

The Seattle “social music discovery” network and referral service is picking up steam, apparently. Today iLike announced 1 million users, up from 500,000 that the company reported on Feb. 28.

It’s also raising the profile of live concert events by flagging artists that are on tour and sending concert alerts to registered users. That should please Ticketmaster, which bought 25 percent of the startup for $13.3 million in December.

Today’s announcement also noted that iLike is processing more than 200 million track plays per month.
