Red Light Management



With the initial decline of the Delta variant before omicron set in, Capshaw relished the return of live shows, applauding vaccine mandates Live Nation and AEG rolled out in October. Even before then, Phish, Chris Stapleton, Luke Bryant, Dierks Bentley, Lady A, The Black Crowes and Counting Crows were among the Red Light acts playing outdoor venues. Capshaw no longer holds a stake in Bonnaroo, but he’s not out of the festival business. August 2021 saw My Morning Jacket and original client Dave Matthews headline Railbird Festival at Keeneland in Lexington, Ky. He partners in that event, along with Pilgrimage Festival in Nashville and Outside Lands in San Francisco. A venture with Twitch yielded CTRL_MUSIC_, a country music channel dedicated to live interactive shows, including Red Light acts Bentley, Gabby Barnett and Jon Pardi.
