Live Nation is meeting what it calls ‘growing demand for live events through Latin America’ by officially expanding into Brazil.

To lead the move, LN has hired Alexandre Faria as the Director and Senior Vice President of Talent Buying in the region.

Faria will focus on booking and producing shows for major artists visiting the country, which is South America’s largest live entertainment market.

In his new role, Faria will be based in Sao Paulo and report to Bruce Moran, Live Nation’s President of Latin America.

“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.”
