The master of the megatour on U2's about-to-launch Innocence + Experience arena trek and why The Rolling Stones keep ticking: "That's the magic of our business."
When a documentary in 2013 asked Who the F--- Is Arthur Fogel?, Bono answered: "The most important person in live music."
Such fawning is to be expected from the U2 singer. After all, Fogel, 61, is the master of the megatour. His Toronto-based, 25-person team, backed by Live Nation's international network of promoters, producers, merchandisers and marketers, has seen tour grosses of more than $3.2 billion combined during the past decade, according to Billboard Boxscore -- among them, five of the top 10 biggest moneymaking treks ever, all steered by Fogel.
