“I am incredibly excited and hungry to dive in full force to the global touring space with Concerts West,” Stoll said in a release. “I have grown up with the AEG family and there aren’t many companies that drive home the toughness, drive and true grit spirit of what embodies an all-around concert promoter.”
Stoll’s late father Jon was a legendary promoter with Fantasma Productions, which eventually became AEG Live Southeast.
“We are thrilled to welcome Jesse to the Concerts West team,” Concerts West co-CEO John Meglen said in a statement. “Jesse brings 14 years of booking experience, deep relationships, and a passion for live entertainment. I worked with Jesse’s father Jon Stoll for many years, he was a close friend. Jon would be proud to see his son follow in his footsteps and build upon the family legacy.”
Stoll will report to Meglen and co-CEO Paul Gongaware and will be based in Los Angeles.
