(CelebrityAccess News Service) – Florida-based promoter Jack Utsick is again expanding his presence Down Under. Utsick has formed a 50-50 partnership with veteran Australian promoters Michael and Kevin Jacobsen to form Jacobsen-Jack Utsick Presents. The new company will promote concerts, theatricals and special events in Australia and New Zealand. Both Kevin Jacobsen and Utsick are directors; Michael Jacobsen, GM; and Amber Jacobsen, director of concerts and special events.
"Jack and I have just formalized a longstanding relationship that we have shared for many years," Michael Jacobsen told CelebrityAccess. "We worked together in Australia on the Bee Gees in '98, Shania Twain in '99 and other shows. Jack's company is worldwide. This new partnership will provide synergistic benefits to both of us, and we're very excited about the future."
Utsick first established a presence in Australia last year with promoter Michael "Chuggy" Chugg in establishing Michael Chugg Entertainment/Jack Utsick Presents. — Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
