Concert promoter?

It's not a Clear Channel tour which explains the lack of radio promotion. They own most of the major U.S. stations, and I believe that there is still bad blood between the two camps after the 02 disaster. I live near Orlando, and today was the first time I heard any mention of the Tampa show on the radio. It was just a small blurb about the weekly MNF event they have at a local bar, and they mentioned as an afterthought that they would be giving away GNR tickets.

Live Nation was a part of Clear Channel, it was a spin off that the company formed in 2001. It became an independent company a few years after that but the people who run it are all mostly former Clear Channel employees who still maintain their contacts with the mother company. If memory serves the company was formed because of fears that Clear Channel was turning into this huge corporate beast that dominates the market, like Microsoft does with computers. They were a legal ticking time bomb so had to do something!

It may be a different company on the surface but underneath its still the same old Clear Channel!
