In Conversation with Tim Leiweke, King of the Arenas

Perhaps the only promise he never kept was his vow to bring a StanleyCup parade to Toronto as CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. But Tim Leiweke subsequently did fulfill another impossible dream. Partnered with management legend and ex-Ticketmaster CEO Irving Azoff, he co-founded Oak View Group and formed the Arena Alliance, an invitation-only group comprised of 26 of some of the top grossing venues in North America – including Madison Square Garden, L.A.’s Forum and Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. A recent achievement came when OVG signed a Memorandum of Understanding “MOU" with the city of Seattle to redevelop its KeyArena, and brokered a deal to bring an NHL team to the city. Effectively, OVG has created a symmetry network that connects artists, athletes, media, and sponsors via the biggest of stages. Veteran music journalist and CelebrityAccess senior writer Larry LeBlanc talks to the Arena King.
