Powerhouse Latin American tour promoter Move Concerts has joined with Argentine management agency 70MIL to form a new management company.
Move Management will handle touring and promotion for Argentine pop artist Abel Pintos, whose career had been steered by 70MIL.
“Move Management was created to only handle one artist- Abel Pintos,” Move Concerts CEO Phil Rodriguez tells Billboard. ”The immense talent, dedication and vision of Abel is what attracted us to the project. That said, if in the future an opportunity arises with another equally unique artist, we are open to expanding the management roster.”
Pintos, who was the most listened to Argentine artist on Spotify from 2014 to 2017, has released 12 albums over a 23-year career; the last four have topped Argentina’s sales charts. The singer-songwriter has repeatedly swept the Gardel awards, Argentina’s most important music awards.
His current “Familia Festeja Tour” will take him to various Latin American countries and Spain this fall; in October and November he will perform in seven Argentine cities, including a sold-out four-night engagement at Buenos Aires’ Estadio Obras.
Move Concerts is Latin America’s largest independent concert promoter, with offices in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru, Puerto Rico and a regional headquarters in Miami.
”Given the fact that the major income stream for most artists today is in live shows and touring, Move Management is well positioned to assist Abel in expanding his horizons,” Rodriguez adds.
