AEG'S JONES HAS AN INTERNATIONAL FEEL

AEG Presents has named Simon Jones to the newly created post of SVP Live Music International.

Jones—who has been with AEG since the construction and launch of the O2 Arena—will head up the promotional operations for AEG Presents U.K., while also working closely with the AEG offices in the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. He’ll report directly to the Co-CEOs of AEG Presents London, Steve Homer and Toby Leighton-Pope

Among the touring acts Jones will promote in the coming months are Shawn Mendes (Europe), Ed Sheeran (South Africa stadiums), Khalid and Calum Scott (Asia), along with Anne-Marie, Jess Glynne, Tom Odell and The Vamps in the U.K.

“I’ve enjoyed building the international touring arm of our U.K. office in recent years,” Jones offered in his official statement. “It’s a major passion of mine, and I’m excited to continue and expand on this even further, with some incredible shows and tours to announce soon.”

In 2017, the announcement points out, AEG promoted over 800 live events in the U.K., including the festivals Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park and the inaugural All Points East.
