Future Beat is the leading provider of VIP and meet & greet ticketing programs in the music touring industry. The company's focus is to provide memorable, once-in-a-lifetime, back-stage experiences for fans that generate significant income for artists. These are the über fans that are ready to pay premium prices for front row seats and the opportunity to go back stage and meet their favorite artists.
The independent company was started in Los Angeles in 2012 by VIP industry veteran and pioneer David Berger, and artist manager Andrew Tenenbaum. Berger has produced more than 750 VIP programs during a 12-year career for some of the world’s largest touring acts including U2, KISS, Prince, Roger Waters, Madonna, Aerosmith and many more. He built and ran the VIP operations at Sony Signatures, Live Nation/VIP Nation and now does the same at his own company. Future Beat has produced more than 350 VIP programs and sold more than 500,000 fan packages since its inception, growing from six tours in its shortened start-up year of 2012, to 55 tours in 2013, 80 in 2014, 85 in 2015 and 110 or more projected in 2016. The company now produces more tours per year than several of its competitors combined.
Future Beat is uniquely positioned with deep ties in the music business, music management and booking agencies. Its operations are completely turn-key, including ticketing, box office management, 24/7 customer service, shipping, fulfillment, road coordination, merchandise design and merchandise manufacture. Future Beat’s leadership and operations team have earned top-level experience from the volume of the tours it produces. With this experience comes long-term respected industry relationships, the highest quality customer service and fan satisfaction.
In September 2016, Future Beat announced that it produced its 100th tour for the year, which is by far its best year and represents more tours produced than any VIP company per year.
