Concert mastermind HARVEY GOLDSMITH has called on music executives to find more groups like Muse if they want to put on huge live events and big tours - or risk another disastrous summer of cancelled shows and poor ticket sales.
The Live Aid promoter admits he's not surprised that 2010 has been a flat year for festivals and concert tours - because there are only a handful of bands and artists big enough to command sell outs and success.
He tells, "The only kind of stadium star or arena-plus star act that has come through recently is Muse. That’s it. Both here in Britain and in America. We need more of them.
"We need to have, as I have said time and time again, new promoters with new ideas, building new acts up so they become the new superstars. Without that, within five years’ time, there will not be a business."
