AEG Presents is reorganizing its Nashville office, with longtime AEG Live Senior VP Ali Harnell joining the global touring team, while Mike DuCharme will serve as VP for AEG’s Nashville regional office and Adam Weiser as VP of the national theaters and clubs team. The move comes following the exit last week of Lenore Kinder, who left to become an agent at Paradigm.
Harnell will shift her focus to national and international touring projects and is promoting tours with Little Big Town, Kacey Musgraves and Midland, as well as Sugarland’s first tour in six years. Harnell will also continue to program and grow AEG Presents’ successful Country 2 Country festival at the O2 in London.
DuCharme will be moving from Kansas City where he helped AEG Presents develop the 3,573-seat Midland Theater in the city’s Power & Light District into a premier concert venue. DuCharme joins the Nashville team as AEG has signed on for the $1 billion Nashville Yards project, which will include a 23-story Hyatt Regency, retail and restaurant spaces and a 4,000-capacity venue operated by AEG. Last week AEG paid $44 million for a 3.9-acre piece of the Nashville Yards development.
Weiser is relocating from New Jersey and will focus on growing new artist relationships for AEG Presents venues as well as national tours. Weiser has already taken on tours with Chris Young, Markiplier, R5 and Old Dominion.
