Frontier Touring Named No. 1 Promoter of 2008

Michael Gudinski`s Frontier Touring Company has nabbed the coveted No. 1 Promoter of 2008 nod from Pollstar for the Australian and New Zealand market.

With tours from The Police, Kylie Minogue, Billy Joel and Snow Patrol in the last 12 months, Frontier Touring ranked No. 15 for the world and No. 1 for its local market.

“It may be doom and gloom at the moment with the global economy but up until September 2008 Frontier was having a pretty amazing run. We ended 2008 well, but it could have been phenomenal before the economy went toe up,” Gudinski said in a statement.

“The industry is inevitably set to go through some tough times, but I still believe that people are prepared to pay the money to go and see top quality entertainment. They may not go to as many shows as they used to, but with the right artist, and the right ticket price, there will always be a place for quality live entertainment in people’s budgets.”

In 2009, Frontier is touring Leonard Cohen, Ryan Adams, Fall Out Boy, Kings Of Leon and The Veronicas.
