The energy, leadership and unmitigated success Jeffrey Azoff has brought to the Azoff Company since leaving CAA in 2016 to start Fullstop Management is wildly impressive.

Front and center is what Jeffrey and his Fullstop team have done for Harry Styles, who is a bona fide superstar and the best career development story seen in decades.  His “Love On Tour” was the fourth highest-grossing tour of 2022 earning $256 million on 2 million tickets and in the process reinventing the concept of what a residency is with 15 nights at Madison Square Garden, 15 at The Kia Forum in Inglewood, six at the Moody Center in Austin and another six at the United Center in Chicago. He jumped to No. 3 in Q1 2023 from stadium tours in South America & Asia Oceana and Asia. This week he opens-up a 31 show European Stadium leg which has been announced as the final shows on this run.

What many may not realize is the “Love On Tour,” which began in 2021 (and that year sold the most tickets of any tour), is quietly becoming one of the world’s all-time most successful tours.  With more than $600 million grossed on nearly 5 million tickets, “Love On Tour” will be one of the top-10 highest grossing tours in history.

Filling out Fullstop’s powerful and multi-generational roster is everyone from the Eagles, John Mayer, Anderson .Paak and Gwen Stefani to James Blake, Kings of Leon, Daniel Caesar and, led by Kevin Beisler and Alana Balden, Lizzo.  Recently, the management company picked-up megastar Cardi B and Rock Hall legends U2 who are set to open the Las Vegas Spere on Sept. 29 with their “U2:UV Achtung Baby Live At Sphere.”
