AEG Entertainment has cut all ties to Randy Phillips. They fired him. No thank you for your services. No what will be happening with him or anything. A year after signing a 5 year contract, he has been let go.
Deadline broke the story earlier today.
Randy Phillips first signed with AEG back in 2002. Jay Marciano who was COO is now chairman and will be running the company with Paul Tollett, John Meglen, Shawn Trell and Rick Mueller.
AEG is the world's number 2 concert promoter behind Live Nation.
It is pretty safe to assume that because of the Michael Jackson wrongful death lawsuit and bumping heads with top artists that are now with Live Nation mostly caused Phillips firing. They stood by him during the trial but now that it is past, it is time to move up, and move on.-DocFB
Diagnosis: We have a feeling top artists with Live Nation might be getting a little bit more money if they use AEG on their next tour.
The Michael Jackson AEG trial verdict is in and AEG LIve has been ruled NOT liable for the wrongful death lawsuit of Michael Jackson.
Diagnosis: Where was the woman with the doves?
"This Is It"..... Say it isn't so!
M.J has delayed the opening date of his 50-Show comeback due to "massive and technically complex show" says Randy Phillips, Chief Executive of the concerts' Producer for AEG.
Concerts will now kick off July 13th. Three make up performances will take place March 2010.
"There's nothing nefarious", Phillips stated in a video news conference this morning. "There is nothing going on with his health. This is strictly a production issue".
Only time will tell.....WHAT? I'm just sayin'
According to this report in the LA Times, Michael Jackson and AEG Live will be making an announcement Thursday morning in London that Jackson will be launching a "series of comeback shows." The comeback will reportedly kick off this summer in London's O2 Arena, the same venue Prince played for twenty-one straight shows in 2007.
