Live Nation Expands Its Presence In Brazil With Hire Of Industry Vet Alexandre Faria

New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Live Nation Entertainment) "Cities throughout Brazil are becoming key tour stops as more global artists visit their fans in Latin America," said Moran. "The knowledge, relationships and passion Alexandre Faria displays for promotions makes him a great asset to Live Nation as we continue to expand concert offerings to meet growing demand across Brazil."

"I'm excited to join the Live Nation Latin America team during a time with so much opportunity and development," said Faria. "Together, we will bring the people of Brazil and Latin America standout performances from international artists as well as local talent."

For over 20 years, Faria has been a major talent buyer and promoter in Latin America. He began his career in 1994 as an independent promoter, before joining indie promoter Mercury Concerts in 1999. In 2000, Faria moved to regional live events promoter CIE Brasil, which later spun off as T4F Entretenimento S.A., where he was responsible for booking and producing concerts in Brazil and South America. Faria has spent the last seven years at T4F, booking and promoting all major events for the group throughout South America. During that time, he worked with such talent and projects as U2, Lollapalooza, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, EDC, Maroon 5, Black Sabbath, Madonna, One Direction, Justin Bieber, Metallica, Roger Waters, and many other international and local tours.

Live Nation continues to see a growing demand for live events throughout Latin America, with more global tours traveling to, and selling out shows, in the region each year. Live Nation Latin America is having a high-profile year so far in 2017, producing major tours for artists including Coldplay, U2, Bruno Mars, John Mayer, Ariana Grande, Sting, Metallica, Paul McCartney, Justin Bieber, Bon Jovi, Maroon 5, and more.
