Looking to expand its footprint in New York, Live Nation has brought in Anthony Makes from Bowery Presents to lead the local division.

As President of New York, Makes will lead the company's expansion in the market and further develop concert promotions and event bookings. He was most recently lead promoter for AEG-partner Bowery Presents. He will report to Alan Ostfield, President of U.S. Concerts, North Atlantic Region.

In addition, longtime booker Jason Miller has been promoted Executive Vice President and will work closely with Makes to oversee booking.

"Anthony brings significant industry experience from his 25-year career in music," Ostfield said. "With their combined knowledge of New York and strong relationships within the industry, Anthony and Jason will be unstoppable as we continue working to expand our annual concert events and venue platform."

In New York, Live Nation runs Irving Plaza, Gramercy Theatre, Warsaw, Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk, Mercury Lounge and Bowery Ballroom, and books shows at Madison Square Garden, Barclays Center, Beacon Theater and Radio City Music Hall.

Makes said, “It's my goal to help create unparalleled live music experiences for my fellow New Yorkers and the countless people who come to NYC to enjoy live events."
