Panel: My Walkway is What? Navigating Settlements in the Era of Plus, Plus, Plus
Date/Time: Wednesday l Feb. 22 l 2:15 p.m.
Why must everyone go to your panel?
Expenses are up and every dollar matters.
What story will you tell during the panel?
I could chat about the first show where we noticed tipping on merch and an on-the-spot conversation with the promoter/building about it.
What may cause tempers to flare?
Dynamic ticketing: Is it good? Bad? Who really makes the money?
What was the best part of your 2022?
A tie between Rage Against the Machine at Alpine Valley and Pearl Jam’s first Nashville Show in 20 years.
Your predictions for 2023’s live industry highlights?
That is a tough one. I need to think about it, but hopeful the market is less crowded than in 2022.
Career tentpoles you are most proud of?
Working with artists and music I love. Also, I helped build a company with offices in L.A., Nashville and New York with 100-plus staff.
