Irving Azoff, widely regarded as one of the music industry's most powerful executives, will continue to oversee the careers of the Eagles and Christina Aguilera, according to Securities and Exchange Commission filings from Live Nation Entertainment.
Azoff resigned Monday from his role as chairman of the concert promotion and management giant.
In addition to receiving multiple millions in bonuses and stocks, Azoff's non-compete clause with Live Nation offers some hints as to what direction the veteran mogul's career will take. One project mysteriously alluded to being in development is "a television project currently entitled 'Marshall.' "
The primary focus for Azoff, who helped engineer the merger of the nation's largest ticketing firm, Ticketmaster, with one of the powerhouses in concert promotion, Live Nation, will be artist management. To that end, he will be allowed to take on new artist clients -- with some limitations.
Azoff Music Management will be able to work with emerging artists without any restrictions, with emerging artists defined as those with "no prior material revenues" from the music industry. In an interview with industry trade Billboard, Azoff said he was currently working with "The Voice" winner Casssadee Pope, adding that it was "too early to predict" other projects.
