Pollstar Impact NextGen: Grace Gibson

Grace Gibson

Talent Buyer, Live Nation
Age: 31

Favorite Show of 2019: (so far)
Charly Bliss at The Bronze Peacock

Grace books shows at six different venues in three different cities in Texas – The Bronze Peacock, House of Blues and Revention Music Center in Houston, Cambridge Room and House of Blues in Dallas, and The Aztec Theatre in San Antonio. She is pleased to have moved back to her hometown of Houston where she calls it her “mission to promote equal female representation both in the content that I book on the stage and as a woman successfully navigating a traditionally male-dominated business.”

She also has the pleasure of calling one of her dearest friends a mentor in Live Nation senior VP of booking Stacie George

“While I’ve learned so much from her pertaining to our work itself, the most critical piece of advice she’s given me is to set boundaries and prioritize my health. Because when do you that, you’re really able to operate at your best.” A recent career highlight was booking Brittany Howard at the Aztec, as her first job after college was as assistant to High Road Touring’s Matt Hickey. 

Her top advice: “Put yourself out there and don’t be afraid to ask questions.”
