Arthur Fogel is a Canadian music promoter, currently serving at Live Nation Entertainment as CEO of its Global Touring division and as Chairman of its Global Music group. The organization sells almost 50 million tickets to more than 20,000 events every year, and his team has managed four of the top five highest-grossing tours in history, including those by U2, Madonna, Lady Gaga, and The Police.
Fogel's rapport with his musician clients is reportedly enhanced by the fact that he is also a musician, known to play drums.
Fogel's long career as a concert organizer has been occasionally speckled by circumstances outside of his control, forcing his organization to react swiftly. In 2010, Diana Ross's Return to Love Tour was canceled mid-stride due to a failure of financial negotiations with artists, high ticket prices, and the resulting low attendance. A 2002 Guns N' Roses concert tour was shaken by promoter Clear Channel Communications's cancellation of multiple concert dates, due to the band's second failure to appear on stage. Described by MTV News as a riot, the event suffered fighting and mayhem amidst the audience, and between the audience and the attending riot police.
