Michael
Rapino

President / CEO / Director

Following years of success, Live Nation faced the same 2020 quandary as every other live entertainment player, quickly forming a COVID-19 task force with AEG, CAA, WME, Paradigm and UTA to deal with losses and the eventual return of events. Live Nation and Ticketmaster established refund policies for lost shows, with Rapino forgoing his own salary. The company contributed $10 million to Crew Nation to aid touring and venue staffs out of work, launched drive-in shows globally and held virtual festivals for EDC and Lollapalooza. Its Live From Home streaming platform drew 67 million views in Q2 alone. Social unrest also prompted Rapino to commit to greater diversity within Live Nation and a donation to the Equal Justice Initiative.
