Exclusive: Music mogul Irving Azoff on the return of live music and the California desert

8 mins read


Music mogul Irving Azoff envisions an epic return of live entertainment after the coronavirus pandemic canceled festivals and left concert venues empty this past year. 

“I think it’s going to be the Roaring Twenties,” Azoff said referring to the lively period known for a good time following the devastation and distress of World War I and the Spanish flu pandemic. “I think there’s going to be a lot of pent-up demand and excitement. I think people, especially if they haven’t been able to travel, take a vacation, what a wonderful way to get away for a night even.”

Azoff, who Billboard Magazine named in 2012 the most powerful man in the music industry, was hesitant to speculate about when a return to live music might come in the United States.
