Yesterday, Gary Richards, aka Destructo, broke the news via Facebook that he would no longer be involved with Live Nation going forward.
Richards, who’s been a top tier promoter, DJ, and producer in the industry since the launch of his HARD Events brand back in 2007 had a five year contract with the concert behemoth that ended this year. Live Nation decided not to renew Richards’ contract, instead moving forward in a different direction from the brand Richards helped build.
This year’s HARD Summer will be his last event with Live Nation. Following the event, Gary Richards will assume a position with LiveStyle, the company formerly known as SFX. It is unclear exactly what position he will hold with LiveStyle or who is in place to assume the day-to-day and talent buying duties for the HARD Events brand.
