Live Nation Acquires Singapore’s One Production
Live Nation continues to make moves globally by acquiring a controlling interest in Singapore-based concert promoter ONE Production.
A Jan. 28 announcement about the acquisition points out that the majority of concerts promoted by ONE Production feature artists from Asian countries such as Taiwan, Korea, China and Japan, which complement the shows Live Nation Singapore has been hosting by North American and European acts.
One Production’s 2018 calendar included stadium and arena-promoted shows by Mayday, Eason Chan, Got7, Twice, Super Junior, EXO, and One OK Rock.
Live Nation has continued to see growth in the Asian market and just put on its most successful year to date in Singapore, with shows by Bruno Mars, Imagine Dragons, The Weeknd, Mariah Carey and Dua Lipa.
“By joining forces with ONE Production, we are creating the leading international concert promotion business in Singapore,” Alan Ridgeway, chairman, Live Nation Asia Pacific, said in a statement. “We look forward to amplifying performance opportunities for artists and diversifying concert offerings for fans by welcoming the local expertise of the ONE Production team.”
Live Nation Singapore and ONE Production will kick off the first quarter of 2019 with shows by Maroon 5, BTS and BlackPink.
Other recent acquisitions by Live Nation include Argentinian concert promoter DF Entertainment Dec. 20 and Swiss concert promoter Mainland Music Dec. 11.
