Former Live Nation UK execs Toby Leighton-Pope and Steve Homer have been appointed joint-CEOs of rival AEG Live UK, it has been announced. Rumours of the move have been circulating for some time, though they apparently only officially took up their new roles last month.

Kicking off their joint role with a joint statement, they say in glorious unison: “It’s been rumoured for a while and so we’re pleased to announce our move to AEG Live UK. Together we are excited to work with a great team with the aim of growing AEG Live UK”.

AEG Europe chief exec Tom Miserendino adds: “I am excited to welcome Toby and Steve to AEG and look forward to working with them as we continue to grow our business in the UK and Europe. With their leadership at AEG Live, I’m very confident we have a bright future ahead of us”.

Leighton-Pope and Homer spent more than fifteen years with Live Nation, as Senior Vice Presidents.
