Bowery Presents, a NYC-based production company famous for some of the most noteworthy events in the city, is being acquired by AEG Live, a world renown promotions company.
Bowery Presents is infamous for operating places like Rough Trade, Terminal 5, Music Hall of Williamsburg and Mercury Lounge, just to name a few. On top of this, they continue their show production elsewhere, including Barclays Center, MSG, Beacon Theatre, Brooklyn Bowl, Beacon Theatre and plenty similar.
With AEG broadening their horizons and wanting to continue their legacy on attaching themselves to huge events, what better way than to acquire Bowery Presents? Not only do AEG promote shows, but also festivals (like NYC's first timer, Panorama Music & Arts Festival.) They're also attached to Firefly and Coachella, amongst others.
What does this merge mean? More shows. Better shows. The best venues. We're sure they'll get imaginative with it, and we're looking forward to the results of this.
