The LOS ANGELES DODGERS and OAK VIEW GROUP (OVG) have signed a multi-year exclusive booking agreement to bring more premium music content to DODGER STADIUM. As OVG, formed last year by IRVING AZOFF and TIM LEIWEKE. is not a promoter, the building will remain an open building welcoming all promoters in the business.
“We’ve had many of the greatest names in the music industry perform at DODGER STADIUM and teaming up with IRVING and TIM will bring many more great performers to our beautiful venue,” Dodgers EVP/Chief Marketing Officer LON ROSEN said.
“We said from day one that OVG will set out to work with the best and most iconic properties and this partnership with the DODGERS organization helps prove that point,” LEIWEKE said. “Music can be a second anchor tenant to these facilities and we believe in that model to help drive more revenue for our clients. Most importantly, this is a great day for music fans in Southern CALIFORNIA and we will work tirelessly to give them what they want and an experience that they will remember.”
“LOS ANGELES is a special place for me and has been very good to me so to now have a vested interest in both THE FORUM and DODGER STADIUM puts a big smile on my face," AZOFF said. "These are two of the best places to see live music anywhere in the country.”
