My guest today is Tony Boden.
Tony is a UK booking agent, promoter and head of European touring at ArteryGlobal.com - a company who look after an enormous roster of artists from all over the globe.
Recently I was able to sit down and have a one on one with Tony about his experiences, thoughts and opinions on the music business. And it was a great conversation.
In this episode we talk about being a booking agent, what they do, how to become one, being a concert promoter and all of the risks you face as a promoter - after all concert promoters are the ‘gamblers’ of the music business.
Tony’s doing some great things in the music industry and I hope you’ll agree that this is yet another interesting and informative episode of Music Business Facts.
