Harvey Goldsmith is the star of a new reality TV show that will look to help six entertainment businesses turn their fortunes around.
The reality TV show starring the legendary Live Aid and Live 8 promoter, "Get Your Act Together With Harvey Goldsmith," hit Channel 4 in late March.
Each of the six weekly episodes, which have been produced by Bob Geldof’s Ten Alps TV, will feature Goldsmith trying to reverse the fortunes of some struggling entertainment businesses.
He’ll help transform the careers of Irish pop star Samantha Mumba and U.K. heavy metal band Saxon, try to revive a working men’s club with dwindling membership and big debts, revamping Paulo’s (Britain’s oldest family circus), help a struggling husband-and-wife opera business, and advise Big L Radio – a local radio station with big name DJs – on how to up its dwindling listenership.
He’ll work with each act over several months advising them on everything from image to invoices and opening his extensive contacts book to help them get back on their feet.
Last year he celebrated 40 years in the live music business and was honoured with a Music Industry Trust Award in recognition of his services to the industry, his work producing the history-making Live Aid and Live 8 events and the money he’s raised for good causes.
The world-famous rock ‘n’ roll impresario, who already has the CBE among his long roll of honours, is almost as well known for the work he’s done raising millions for the Prince’s Trust, the Teenage Cancer Trust and numerous other charities.
