Last Year's Rank: 19

Ticking off six milestones that helped make 2016 his “best year by every metric,” the self-described Air Force brat sounds ebullient: The Rolling Stones’ watershed Cuba concert (“the logistics were monumental”); the inaugural Desert Trip (“biggest gross in history”); Carole King’s first-ever performance of Tapestry at London’s Hyde Park (“a goose-bumps moment”); the launch of New York’s Panorama festival; AEG Live’s acquisition of major Northeast indie promoter The Bowery Presents; and the opening of T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. All told, AEG Live grossed $1.1 billion from 2,507 shows in 2016.
