Geoff Gordon has produced, promoted, and overseen over 10,000 concerts for tens of millions of music fans. With over 25 years in the live music industry, Geoff has booked some of the first and most recent concerts by Beyoncé, Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Luke Bryan, Metallica, and hundreds more. Gordon and his staff currently book and promote over 700 shows a year in the New York and Greater Philadelphia areas. Some highlights for Gordon include Philadelphia’s July 4th Welcome America Concerts (the largest free outdoor concert in the US), the final concerts at Philadelphia's legendary Spectrum with four nights of Pearl Jam, and the annual Roots Picnic (now in its 13th year). In addition, Gordon was the national coordinator for the first-ever Jay-Z & Kayne West tour that hit over 30 cities in 2011.
Gordon has also helped create and curate new music festivals, including The Peach Music Festival, XPoNential Music Festival, HiJinx Festival (which launched in 2018 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center), HoagieNation, and RocNation’s Made In America Festival curated by JAY Z - all returning in 2019 due to overwhelming success and demand. These events have helped create jobs, sell out hotels and fill local restaurants and businesses. Made In America, for example, has successfully generated about $100 million in positive economic impact to the city since it began in 2012, as reported by multiple publications last year.
In recent years, Gordon worked with the CRDA to establish a series of concerts on the Atlantic City Beach, which brought in over an estimated $50 million in non-gaming revenue and drew over 250,000+ fans since 2014.
Two of Gordon's most recent endeavors are the restoration of The Met Philadelphia and the creation of Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia. The Met Philadelphia has ignited a resurgence in North Philadelphia and Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia completes the Fishtown Entertainment Campus which also includes the Fillmore, the Foundry, and Punch Line Philly.
Gordon and his team have attracted more than 400,000 to more than 160 shows in the Met’s inaugural season. The Met is the crown jewel of North Broad’s redevelopment. A portion of each ticket sold at The Met supports music in schools. Geoff and his team have donated more than $110,000 to the Philadelphia School District to support music in schools since the Met opened in December 2018.
Geoff serves on the Board of Directors for the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce.
