While the Grammys have come and gone, Lady Gaga wants the world to know about her pal Arthur Fogel. Epix premiered their simply terrific documentary “Who the f**k is Arthur Fogel?” at the Harmony Gold in Hollywood last week.
You ask who Arthur is? Fogel, the CEO of Live Nation Entertainment, is arguably the mostpowerful rock & roll executive in rock history. He’s a humble, gracious and low-key native Canadian who literally has and is currently overseeing the most profitable mega tours in rock¹s storied history.
Arthur had the foresight years ago, when the rock world thought it was nuts, to see that the big mega tours were the future of the music business. And boy, was he right. No less than Bono, Sting, Andy Sumners, Stewart Copeland, The Edge, Madonna and more all herald mega talented Arthur in this fascinating film.
Lady Gaga showed up at the screening of the Ron Chapman helmed doc, uncharacteristically without fanfare, in a flowing gold gown and then she and her peeps all went to the after party at the tony Chateau Marmont to fete her friend.
Ms. Stefani Germanotta posed for pics, hung out with her lovely parents and was her charming self. While Arthur held court, he is busy overseeing Gaga’s next tour. Other tours that Arthur is handling are Justin Timberlake, U2, Kings Of Leon, Arcade Fire, Paul Simon and Sting and many more. Not bad Mr. Fogel, this current kudos is very, very well deserved. Don¹t miss this doc people. It’s an insightful peek behind the curtain to the rock world that even us avid rock groupies know very little about. And Mr. Arthur Fogel is someone well worth knowing.
