Live Nation Entertainment's concert revenue from 2008 to 2019

In 2019, Live Nation's revenue amounted to 9.43 billion US dollars, up from 8.77 billion in the previous year. Whilst the company's revenues have been growing steadily over the last decade, 2020 is set to be a difficult year. In early March 2020, the coronavirus outbreak severely impacted the events industry as governments and companies were forced to close venues and cancel events in a bid to protect the public and prevent the further spread of the disease. Live Nation's share price was hit hard, but only time will tell how deeply affected the company will be as a result of the pandemic.

Live Nation Entertainment's concert revenue

Live Nation Entertainment draws revenue from the following segments of its activities: sponsorship and advertising, ‘Artist Nation’ (artist management services), ticketing and concerts. The concert business involves operating music venues and promoting the live music events taking place.

In 2012, after two years of relatively weak results, Live Nation Entertainment managed to top its 2009 concert revenues, which amounted to 3.7 million US dollars. Growth in 2011 amounted to more than 10 percent and was the highest among all segments Live Nation operates. What is more, concert revenue made two thirds of Live Nation’s total revenue for 2012, firmly confirming the segment’s place as the most important revenue source for LNE. Live Nation Entertainment organized over 25 thousand concerts around the world in 2015.

Live music is a popular and profitable form of entertainment. In 2019, the tour which brought in the highest revenue globally was that of American singer Pink, which generated over 215 million U.S. dollars. In North America, The Rolling Stones ranked first, generating 177.8 million with their tour in the same time period.
