HOUSTON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Houston office of Live Nation has undergone some staff booking changes.
Executive Vice President of Booking Beckye Levin will redirect her primary focus to booking the markets in Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Previously, she was responsible for ticketing operations, booking policies and procedures, and system programs. Maura Gibson will continue to handle Live Nation ticketing as national director of ticketing. Most booking policies and procedures will soon be handled out of the LA office that Levin will oversee during the transition.
Taki Pappas, previously responsible for booking Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, as well as Houston clubs, will relocate to Live Nation's Los Angeles touring office as vice president of touring. Christian Larson will take over the Houston club bookings.
Bob Roux, president, Live Nation Houston, will continue to oversee the day to day operations and booking efforts within the region, with primary booking responsibility for arenas and amphitheaters in Texas and Oklahoma. — Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
