Warner France has acquired Paris-based Nous Productions, a live promoter whose roster includes the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Eyed Peas, Metallica and Robbie Williams.

Salomon Hazot will remain president of Nous Productions according to a statement issued by Warner.

The deal comes 30 months after the major bought Jean-Claude Camus Productions, the concert promoter of Christophe Maé and of French legend Johnny Hallyday

"[Camus] is one of the best on producing [tours from] major local artists, while Salomon has the biggest international roster," Warner France CEO Thierry Chassagne tells Billboard.biz.

Chassagne says Nous Productions is also strong on developing new domestic artists, adding that Warner and Nous co-promoted the concerts of Sliimy and BB Brunes, both signed to the major.

"We are now able to produce [tours by] any kind of artist," Chassagne says, stressing that Warner's 360-degree strategy means providing all artists with the best service in each area.

Nous Productions will continue to operate separately, as Camus Productions has done since its acquisition by Warner.
