'I Feel Very Positive About The Future': Rob Hallett Goes Independent Again | Pollstar News

Rob HallettRob HallettFounder and CEO of Robomagic.

After three years at Live Nation, Rob Hallett and Live Nation announced today that Robomagic will be leaving with immediate effect.

Commenting on the move, Hallett said, "I feel very positive about the future, embracing the new normal, enhanced by new technology, the industry will bounce back in a big way.

"I would like to thank everyone at Live Nation, for their support over the last three years, and look forward to the next instalment of Robomagic Live”. 


Hallett is confident that the live scene will be in "rude health" by spring 2021, albeit with some substantial changes, according to the announcement. 

Determined to be ahead of the "ongoing curve," he is keen to develop a smaller, more flexible company, that is well positioned to benefit from this new landscape.

He had joined AEG in 2005, and was instrumental in the consulting on its flagship London venue, the O2, which he also opened with Bon Jovi in 2007. He also promoted Prince 21 nights residency at the building that same year.

Hallett was also the promoter of Michael Jackson's planned 50-night residency at the O2, which sadly never happened.

During his time at AEG, he won the Pollstar Award for International Promoter of the Year twice, in 2007 and 2012.

The list of artists Hallett as toured also includes Barbara Streisand, the Rolling Stones, Andrea Bocelli, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Usher, Justin Bieber, Leonard Cohen, Linkin Park, Kanye West, The Who, Duran Duran and more.
