Panel: What’s Going On In Ticketing?
Date/Time: Wednesday l Feb. 22 l 12:10 p.m.

Why must everyone go to your panel?
It will be a genuine and thoughtful discussion on ticketing, the latest on dynamic pricing, and the consolidation of the primary and secondary markets. I will also reveal the secret recipe to my grandmother’s brisket.

What story will you tell during the panel?
How working for Lorne Michaels at “Saturday Night Live” straight out of college gave me an amazing foundation for my career.

What’s the story you won’t tell?
How I got Morrissey to apologize for canceling a gig…

What may cause tempers to flare?
The fact that open distribution and dynamic pricing can help mediate a lot of the issues we’re seeing in the primary ticketing space.

What was the best part of your 2022?
Joining Logitix.

Your predictions for 2023’s live industry highlights?
A very robust touring market – hopefully with more sensitivity to pricing.

Career tentpoles you are most proud of?
I am most proud of the work I’ve done advocating for artists over the past 20 years. Whether in the ticketing business or as a manager – making sure that the artist is being represented and compensated fairly is what it’s all about. Without the artist we’re nothing.
