EPIX REVEALS “ WHO THE F**K IS ARTHUR FOGEL?” IN JANUARY 29 WORLD PREMIEREDocumentary Profiles the Most Powerful – and Unknown – Person in Live Music Today
Premium entertainment network EPIX announced today that
Who the F**k is Arthur Fogel? will make its
World Premiere on Wednesday, January 29, at 8PM ET. This documentary by Ron Chapman profiles Arthur Fogel, a relatively unknown businessman who has revolutionized the global concert touring industry.
Who the F**k is Arthur Fogel? is the untold story of a quiet, private man at the controls of the high-octane, ever-changing (and often treacherous) global music industry.
With his personal, “hands-on” approach and masterful knowledge of world touring, Fogel, the President of Global Touring and Chairman of Global Music for LIVE NATION, has overseen the most profitable mega-tours in history. “First and foremost, he’s a musician,” explains Sting. “I think when you’re dealing with artists as a musician, you don’t need to push your weight around…I always feel [Arthur] treats us as fellow musicians, rather than pieces in his business game.”
As recording artists increasingly rely on live performances and merchandising for the majority of their income, Fogel has established a formula for consistently delivering top-grossing tours for icons like Madonna and U2 that have seen their revenues skyrocket under his visionary direction. “Arthur knows how to make the impossible, possible,” says Madonna. “He’s a touring genius.”
Who the F**k is Arthur Fogel? includes an in-depth interview with Fogel, as well as appearances by
Bono, The Edge, Sting, Andy Summers, Madonna, Geddy Lee, Bill Zysblat, Monte Pittman, Kathy Schenker, Paul McGuinness, Ray Waddell, Michael Rapino, Guy Oseary, Elliot Roberts, Lady Gaga, David Bowie, Troy Carter and many many more, as well as rarely seen concert performances. In addition to the interviews, the film features the music of
Madonna, Rush, Sting, The Police, U2 and
Depeche Mode to name a few.
“EPIX programming takes viewers inside the world of entertainment,” said EPIX CEO Mark Greenberg, “and we are excited to share this story about Arthur Fogel, who has played such an important role in the music industry and the careers of the multi-Grammy winning artists who respect him.”
