Nielsen Leaves WOW Hall

After nearly five years at Eugene, Ore.’s 650-capacity WOW Hall, Abe Nielsen will leave his post as GM/in-house booking manager.

He plans to move to Seattle at the end of October, and is currently weighing different job opportunities within the industry, he told Pollstar.

Meanwhile, the WOW Hall is seeking a new GM. Filling Nielsen’s post as in-house booker will be his assistant, Mike Hergenreter.

“Mike has been my assistant for two years now. I feel great about leaving the calender in his capable hands,” Nielsen said.

All scheduled concerts will go on as planned and all pending offers are valid, he added.
