EPIX REVEALS “WHO THE F**K IS ARTHUR FOGEL?” IN JANUARY 29 WORLD PREMIERE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

EPIX REVEALS “WHO THE F**K IS ARTHUR FOGEL?” IN JANUARY 29 WORLD PREMIERE

 

Documentary Profiles the Most Powerful – and Unknown – Person in Live Music Today

 

New York, NY, DECEMBER 10, 2013 – Premium entertainment network EPIX announced today that Who the F**k is Arthur Fogel? will make its World Premiere on Wednesday, January 29, at 8PM ET. This documentary by Ron Chapman profiles Arthur Fogel, a relatively unknown businessman who has revolutionized the global concert touring industry.  Who the F**k is Arthur Fogel? is the untold story of a quiet, private man at the controls of the high-octane, ever-changing (and often treacherous) global music industry.

With his personal, “hands-on” approach and masterful knowledge of world touring, Fogel, the President of Global Touring and Chairman of Global Music for LIVE NATION, has overseen the most profitable mega-tours in history. “First and foremost, he’s a musician,” explains Sting. “I think when you’re dealing with artists as a musician, you don’t need to push your weight around…I always feel [Arthur] treats us as fellow musicians, rather than pieces in his business game.”

As recording artists increasingly rely on live performances and merchandising for the majority of their income, Fogel has established a formula for consistently delivering top-grossing tours for icons like Madonna and U2 that have seen their revenues skyrocket under his visionary direction. “Arthur knows how to make the impossible, possible,” says Madonna. “He’s a touring genius.”

Who the F**k is Arthur Fogel? includes an  in-depth interview with Fogel, as well as appearances by Bono, The Edge, Sting, Andy Summers, Madonna, Geddy Lee, Bill Zysblat, Monte Pittman, Kathy Schenker, Paul McGuinness, Ray Waddell, Michael Rapino, Guy Oseary, Elliot Roberts, Lady Gaga, David Bowie, Troy Carter and many many more, as well as rarely seen concert performances.  In addition to the interviews, the film features the music of Lady Gaga, Madonna, Rush, Sting, The Police, U2 and Depeche Mode to name a few.

“EPIX programming takes viewers inside the world of entertainment,” said EPIX CEO Mark Greenberg, “and we are excited to share this story about Arthur Fogel, who has played such an important role in the music industry and the careers of the multi-Grammy winning artists who respect him.”

6/11/13 MADONNA’S MDNA CONCERT – 2012’s BIGGEST AND MOST SUCCESSFUL TOUR – TO PREMIERE ON EPIX

EPIX Original Concert Event Premieres Saturday, June 22 on TV, Online at EpixHD.com

and on EPIX Apps

New York, NY, June 11, 2013 – Premium network EPIX will premiere Madonna’s MDNA tour – an EPIX Original Concert Event – on June 22 at 8:00 pm ET. One of the most spectacular and controversial extravaganzas of 2012, Madonna: the MDNA Tour was filmed primarily in Miami as well as other locations. The MDNA Tour was the most successful and highest grossing tour of 2012 and was seen by over 2.2 million Madonna fans during the course of the 88 sold-out shows around the globe. The concert includes performances of several of her biggest hits including “Vogue”, “Like A Prayer” and “Hung Up.” She also performs songs from her MDNA album including “Give Me All Your Luvin’,” “Girl Gone Wild”, “Gang Bang” and “Turn Up the Radio.” The album debuted at No. 1 in over 30 countries. Madonna, along with her seven member band, outstanding troupe of 27 dancers (all clothed in 1500 costumes) and state of the art visuals and sound electrified crowds internationally with what the Material Girl termed “the hardest but most thrilling and challenging show I’ve ever done.”

“My show is a journey…the journey of a soul from darkness to light. It is part cinematic musical theatre – part spectacle and sometimes intimate performance art. It is journey from anger to love and from chaos to order. There are good guys and bad guys to help illustrate this point. Sometimes I play both. It must be watched with an open heart from beginning to end. I am sure if it is viewed this way, you will walk away feeling inspired, invigorated and will want to make the world a better place.” concluded Madonna in describing the show’s intent.

EPIX CEO and President Mark Greenberg commented, “Madonna’s stunning musical performance and show-stopping moves continue to prove that she is truly a timeless entertainer. We launched the EPIX network with Madonna’s previous tour, Sticky and Sweet, premiering the concert the first night that EPIX was on air. We are very excited to have her back on the network.”

The MDNA Show was directed by Danny Tull and Stephane Sennour. Tull has worked with Madonna editing previous shows and her feature film W.E.

Some reviews included:

“Would raise the roof if there were one… another ruthlessly enjoyable show” raved the London’s Sunday Times.

“…Madonna’s back with a vengeance…the Giorgio Moroder-racing “I’m Addicted” secures her crown – still sets the bar soaring…Madonna returns to defy the realms of possibility – our disco Messiah” commented MOJO.

EPIX, launched in 2009, is the first multiplatform premium network offering thousands of hit movies and special events featuring marquee talent for fans to view on television and across hundreds of Internet connected devices.  For more information on the U.S. television premiere of Madonna:  The MDNA Tour on EPIX, visit EpixHD.com/madonna-the-mdna-tour and follow http://twitter.com/EpixHD.
