Concert giant Live Nation announced Tuesday an expansion to Israel as it forecast rising demand for international artists in the country, despite activist campaigns for a boycott.
Live Nation said it was buying a majority stake in Israeli concert promoter Bluestone Entertainment and launching Ticketmaster, its ticketing unit, in the Jewish state.
Alan Ridgeway, president of international and emerging markets, said the Los Angeles-based company — which has been rapidly expanding its global holdings — saw “considerable demand” in Israel.
