Live Nation has announced that it has acquired Utah-based promoter United Concerts, ending its 50 year run as an independent business. The two companies have co-promoted shows in the state for a number of years.

“Having partnered with United Concerts on hundreds of shows in the past we’re confident they are the right partners as Live Nation grows our presence in the market”, says the live giant’s Bob Roux.

United’s CEO Jim McNeil adds: “Becoming part of Live Nation is a strategic move that will benefit our operated venues, and Utah’s live music community at large. We look forward to connecting artists with countless fans here in Salt Lake”.
