18 September 2018

AEG PRESENTS has promoted Simon Jones to the newly created position of senior vice-president (VP) of live music international.

Jones, who was previously VP of AEG’s Goldenvoice division, will be responsible for expanding the company’s international touring activities, working with its offices in the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

“What we have achieved since AEG Presents launched in the UK has been phenomenal and I’m certain we can keep upping the ante both here and around the world,” says Jones. 

AEG Presents promotes more than 800 events annually in the UK and runs  London festivals such as Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time (cap. 65,000) in Hyde Park and All Points East (40,000) in Victoria Park.
