Live Nation is the most dominant company in the live music space, and with more acquisitions on the horizon, Emporium Presents Dan Steinberg wanted to know if concerts “have become a one-horse race?” and “are all the independents just fucked?” Michael Rapino, CEO of Live Nation wasted no time, telling Steiny “well, thank God you have that podcast going,” to a thundering applause during the Pollstar Live conference earlier this month. The entire interview is now available for download via the Promoter 101 podcast. It’s a great Q&A and if you’re like me, you’ll find yourself listening to it a couple times. Check it out here or wherever you download podcasts.
