Danish Promoter Flemming Schmidt Passes Away

STOCKHOLM, Sweden(VIP NEWS) — One of the most influential promoters in Denmark over the past 40 years, Flemming Schmidt, has died from cancer on Saturday.

Flemming and his partner Steen Mariboe founded DKB in early 1970 and became the alternative to the then major concert promoters Knud Thorbjørnsen and Arne Worsøe.

In 2000 DKB was sold to EMA Telstar (today Live Nation) and Flemming and Steen signed a five year deal with the new owners.

Later on Steen left the company but Flemming stayed with Live Nation until he sadly passed away on Saturday.

He leaves behind his wife Mette and two children.
