$1.6 BILLION IN WORLDWIDE GROSS: Under Marciano's leadership, AEG Presents topped 2017's record gross of $1.3 billion with a revenue increase of 9.6 percent. Among the marquee acts that made 2018 so lucrative for the live-event company: Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift (through the Messina Touring Group), who respectively finished first and second in 2018 global touring; and The Rolling Stones, who pulled in over $117.8 million for just 14 European dates. Marciano also cites AEG's upcoming launch of the U.K. festival All Points East and the acquisition of promoter PromoWest Productions as signs of growth.
