LONDON (CelebrityAccess) — Live Nation has bolstered its offices in the United Kingdom with the addition of former Global Live chief Sam Bush and promoter Joe Schiavon to the team.
"It is with great pleasure that I welcome Sam, Joe, Kamran, and Sean to Live Nation," said Andy Copping, Live Nation's executive president of Touring, UK. "Following our partnership with Metropolis Music this year and the addition of these hires, we have further strengthened a formidable promotions team who are dedicated to breaking artists, building careers and bringing even more incredible live experiences to fans in the UK.”
Bush has been named as President of Touring for the UK, while Schiavon joins Live Nation in a promotion role. Bush joins Live Nation after a two-year stint as director of Global’s live & touring division. Prior to that, he was at AEG Live's UK office.
Schiavon also joined Global in 2015 and has previously served as main stage booking assistant at Glastonbury, and as a concert promoter at London-based Transmission Music Group.
Also joining the Live Nation team are promoters, Sean Ryman and Kamran Haq. Haq learned the business as a local promoter in Manchester, working with artists such as Architects, while Ryman was a former promoter at Academy Music Group.
