Los Angeles, CA (Oct 1, 2018) Live Nation Entertainment, the world’s leading live entertainment company, announced today that it acquired a majority stake in Emporium Presents, one of the leading independent concert promoters throughout the United States with a growing presence in Canada. Emporium Presents promotes over 400 shows annually across a variety of entertainment offerings including concerts, stand-up comedy, and performances by celebrated TV personalities. The company, co-founded by Dan Steinberg and Jason Zink, has offices in Colorado, Washington, and Alabama and has experienced rapid growth across North America, making it a great addition to Live Nation’s expansive network of regional promoters.

Their industry insight and strong relationships have grown Emporium Presents into a national promoter in just a few short years, and we can't wait to see what else they achieve now that they are part of Live Nation," said Bob Roux, President, U.S. Concerts, Live Nation.

“We are looking forward to collaborating with our new partner Live Nation and building on what has already been a great long-term relationship between our two companies” said Steinberg of Emporium Presents.
