Alan Ridgeway, Live Nation President of International and Emerging Markets, said: “I am thrilled to welcome Jason to Live Nation to take up this new role that will focus on growing our show volumes in Asia.

Jason’s rare combination of artist relationships and knowledge of Asian markets, will allow us to take full advantage of these opportunities.”
