Live Nation Continues Growth in Thailand with Acquisition of TERO Concerts And Entertainment


Live Nation today announced its strategic acquisition of the Thailand-based TERO Concerts and Entertainment Division (TERO C&E), signaling further growth in Thailand through a commitment to developing local Thai talent, while continuing to bring the most major international artists in the region.

This acquisition builds on the joint venture between Live Nation and TERO launched in 2015, where Live Nation Tero was born to promote international concerts and festivals by Western artists and bring regional artists to Thailand, including leaders of K-Pop such as Big Bang and G. Dragon. Now, with this new acquisition of the TERO C&E division, Live Nation Tero is establishing itself as a holistic company that will cover an extensive slate of international and domestic music as well as family entertainment.

Since its inception in 1998, TERO C&E has conducted nationwide tours, family entertainment, exhibitions, musicals and artist management in Thailand. The company has diversified regional content into an established family entertainment business, led by a strong relationship with the Disney on Ice franchise spanning more than 20 years.

As Thailand’s live entertainment industry revives, revenue from performances by domestic artists across Thailand is expected to grow rapidly year-over-year between 2022 and 2025. This deal brings in a respected domestic promoter and established in a key Asian market, expanding Live Nation’s reach to more fans in the region. The acquisition also deepens Live Nation’s strategy to bring new events to partner brands in the region, including Marriot, Mercedes, Toyota, Pepsi, Budweiser and Samsung hotels.

Roger Field, President of Live Nation Asia-Pacific, said: “TERO C&E has it all: local expertise delivering exceptional fan experiences and career growth for international and local artists. Our deep partnership with TERO will expand our presence not only in Thailand but across the region, and we look forward to bringing fans an ever-growing and incredible roster of domestic and international talent, connecting them to the magic of live.

Neil Thompson, CEO of Live Nation Tero and DMD of Tero Entertainment PLC said: “We are excited about the opportunities for growth in the entertainment industry within one company, this will not only increase the number of top performers coming to perform in Thailand, but now give local artists the opportunity to work with a global company to manage their live touring here in Thailand, APAC and the rest of the world.

Brian Marcar, Managing Director of Tero Entertainment PLC, said: “Our partnership with Live Nation has grown over the years and we have seen many benefits from this union for international artists. Our vision is to expand and grow the partnership to bring the same benefits to local talent so that ‘they too can have the opportunity to expand internationally, which is hugely beneficial to both local fans and local artists.
