Live Nation Concert Jobs
Live Nation is a company at the forefront of live concert events. While Live Nation’s main role involves promoting and producing concerts and music festivals, it also plays a strong role behind developing concert tours and release dates for artists.
Live Nation’s subsidiaries are now managing more than 500 artists – over double the number they were looking after just three years ago.
Current Live Nation Artists include: Rihanna, The Lumineers, Zac Brown Band, Florence & the Machine, Arctic Monkeys, Madonna, Jay Z, Shakira, Fleetwood Mac, Nickelback and U2 to name a few. Live Nation also plays a role in producing other live events such as the Super Bowl halftime show, although this is mainly due to the strong musical presence associated with events of this kind. On the company’s website Live Nation states its main role as marketing and selling concerts for artists. Although Live Nation does own a portion of copyrights for some of its artists, including a deal with Jay Z entitling the company to future copyright of his music, it consistently presents itself as a service industry for artists and fans, rather then an “owner” of music.
Live Nation is listed on the New York Stock Exchange as LYV, a moniker that has garnered a lot of attention due to the 16,000 live concerts produced annually and the nearly 45 million concert tickets sold to venues in over 57 countries. Live Nation is also expanding its platform to include ticketing and has also been successful in expanding its role with Live Nation Artists to control record release dates, merchandise sales and sponsoring. Live Nation currently owns dozens of venues across the globe including the House of Blues. This is quite an impressive resume when you consider the company began in 2005 with president Michael Rapino, as a spin-off from Clear Channel Communications.
