Both will be based in Los Angeles and will report to Omar Al-Joulani, SVP of North American Touring and Ryan McElrath, SVP of North American Touring.

The announcement follows a string of new hires within Live Nation’s U.S. Concerts division as it continues scaling to meet the growing demand for live events.

“With the expansion of our touring team, Live Nation is able to service an even wider breadth of artists and help them cultivate the best live experience for their fans,” said Bob Roux, President of U.S. Concerts. “Steve and Anna have already hit the ground running and we’re thrilled to have them on our team."
