Heather Parry: The Force Behind Live Nation

Heather Parry is best known as the president of Live Nation Productions. She was behind one of the most popular films of 2018, “A Star is Born[ll1] ”, which starred Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Her own determination led her to be a part of that fantastic movie. As soon as she heard that Bradley Cooper was directing a remake of the movie, she did her best to hop on board. She immediately contacted Cooper’s Agent, Dave Bugliari, and stated just how she can help the movie’s marketability. After, at a dinner with Martha Stewart and Bill Gerber, she didn’t stop. She continued pitching the movie to Gerber and he eventually gave in to her passion.

Live Nation Productions is the production arm of the entertainment conglomerate. Productions was founded at the end of 2015, and since then, has been behind some very good documentaries centered around musicians of different backgrounds. From Puffy Daddy’s “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story” to the Eagles of Death Metal “Nos Amis”, She’s been a part of it all.

Next up, she is tackling a project centered on pop music with support from Noah Cyrus and Kim Petras. Additionally, a television series called “From Cradle to Stage” is under production. This series is based on the book written by Dave Grohl’s mother, Virginia Hanlon Grohl.

Heather Parry had her start at MTV at 22 while working for their news division. She quickly rose through the ranks due to her hard work and was promoted to West Coast Bureau Chief. While holding this position, she produced a number of projects like “The Longest Yard” with Adam Sandler, and “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” with Curtis Jackson (50 Cent).

She understands the importance of using Live Nations multiple platforms to market their films and television shows. Live Nation is in charge of over 100 music festivals. She’s been crucial for Live Nation as they continue to expand globally.
