Arthur Fogel: The 2015 Billboard Power 100
NO. 26

Arthur Fogel

61, President, Live Nation Global Touring; chairman, Live Nation Global Music

Last year's rank: 23

The fact that Fogel was able to generate 3 million in attendance from just three tours in 2014 speaks to the status of his clients. In this case, that's Lady Gaga, Paul Simon/Sting and Justin Timberlake, who put together the highest-grossing tour by any solo artist in 2014, according to Billboard Boxscore. In 2015, Fogel's flagship client will hit the road: U2's ambitious Innocence + Experience tour begins May 14 in Vancouver, with 44 shows already moving 660,000 tickets.

MOST STARSTRUCK MOMENT: "Seeing Frank Sinatra in Toronto in the 1980s. It was the most ­surreal experience. The guy oozed cool."
