Leighton-Pope, Homer Named AEG Live UK CEOs

Newly named AEG Live UK Co-CEOs Toby Leighton-Pope and Steve Homer will report directly to Tom Miserendino, President and CEO of AEG Europe. 

It had been clear that the two former Live Nation employees were leaving for the competitor since December 2015. Leighton-Pope and Homer are responsible for AEG Live’s UK concert business with current touring artists such as Justin Bieber, Rod Stewart, The Who and Shawn Mendes, the two London venues the Eventim Apollo and Indigo at The O2, as well as London’s music festival British Summer Time in Hyde Park.

Both released a joint statement, saying: “It’s been rumoured for a while and so we’re pleased to announce our move to AEG Live UK. Together we are excited to work with a great team with the aim of growing AEG Live UK.” Miserendino added: “I am excited to welcome Toby and Steve to AEG and look forward to working with them as we continue to grow our business in the UK and Europe. With their leadership at AEG Live, I’m very confident we have a bright future ahead of us.”

AEG COO Jay Marciano said: “Toby and Steve’s record in the live touring business speaks for itself. Together they have worked successfully with global stars, nurtured new talent and developed venues and festivals. They are a perfect fit for AEG Live’s growing operation.”
