In the past 3 months, I tried bringing Whitney Houston to Korea for a concert. We set the date and venue. Then, my partner told me the investors were having second thoughts about it. In the end, the deal fell through and I guess we wouldn't be able to see her perform live in Seoul for a while.
I know shit happens but I'm kind of mad at him for asking me to negotiate with her agent on his behalf when his investors haven't even committed to it.
I guess I should stick with what I know best. Movies. But then, I learned a great deal about the concert promotion business and realize it can grow if you do it right.
When I mentioned this project to a friend of mine, he reminds the Weinstein Brothers started out as concert promoters. I guess, I'm going backwards then. :)
