It finally seems like the HMV Live saga is coming to an end. AEG has been granted preferred bidder status in the race to secure HMV Live. HMV has been trying to find a buy for over a year now and after several talks and sackings, AEG now seems like they will secure some Live venues in London and UK Festivals.
There are 13 music venues under the HMV Live umbrella in total including London’s HMV Hammersmith Apollo and the Ritz in Manchester.
It also accounts for five festivals including Lovebox and HMV Next Big Thing.
