DOPE Shows has become one of the most powerful independent concert promotion companies in the U.S. due to their instinctive business savvy and an eye to bring era-defining artists to the local stage. With an unstoppable momentum of achievements, this show follows the sold out album release concert for TOURE at the Theatre of Living Arts. After attending the spectacle, Secret Philadelphia praised, “To not only bring people together like one big melting pot, but to also create that kind of vibe is downright powerful.”
With an established track record for success, Live Nation Northeast announces a co-promoter partnership with Stephen Piner and Jamir Shaw of DOPE Shows, two Philly natives who have cultivated and grown a boutique concert promotions company focused on hip hop and R&B with strong artist relationships. Live Nation and DOPE Shows will collaborate on identifying, cultivating, and developing live experiences across hip hop, R&B, and urban art forms for fans, brands, and artists in Philadelphia, the New York Metropolitan area, Atlantic City, and other Northeast territories.
Through this new partnership, Live Nation will provide DOPE Shows with marketing, concert production, and venue operations expertise and support. Meanwhile, DOPE Shows will work with Live Nation to program content and provide grass-roots support for many of Live Nation’s clubs and theaters, with the potential to work together on future opportunities for arenas, radio shows, and festivals.
“With an eye towards the 50th anniversary of hip hop in 2023, we look forward to working closely with our new partners at DOPE Shows to celebrate this milestone with a series of shows across many of our Northeast territories,” said Geoff Gordon, Regional President, Live Nation Northeast. “Our role as promoters is to help artists achieve their goals. I greatly respect Jamir and Stephen for sharing that same vision and passion for their artists.”
“We’re excited to take our brand to the next level and explore new opportunities with an amazing company like Live Nation,” said DOPE Shows founders Stephen Piner and Jamir Shaw. “After years of being an ally and friend of Geoff Gordon’s, it feels good to partner with a legend in the game. Together we plan to show the world that there Ain’t No Shows Like Dope Shows!”
In a run that stretches over six years, DOPE Shows have sold over 200,000 tickets for shows featuring the likes of Lil Baby, Lil Durk, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Gunna, G Herbo, and more, becoming stepping stones for emerging superstars and bridges for the performers and the local fans that want to see them.
