Concert Industry Awards

Voting for the 20th Anniversary Pollstar Concert Industry Awards concluded Jan. 9. The winners will be announced Friday, Jan. 30 at a gala party and awards show at Club Nokia.

This year saw record numbers of industry professionals voting as the process was conducted completely online. The electronic balloting resulted in a better than 50 percent increase in responses and allowed for timely voting whether you were in Burbank, Berlin or Bangkok.

In addition to those eclectic names announced last week, the awards show has just added Eric Benet, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Kathy Sledge of Sister Sledge, Ryan Star, Frankie Valli, and former New York Yankee/current jazz artist Bernie Williams as presenters with more surprises to come.

A ticket to the awards show is included with each CIC registration and tickets are still available at a $100 discount if purchased by Jan. 23. A limited number of tickets just to the awards party are also available at
