Fear At The Top: Michael Chugg

“Most acts after a year with Live Nation are looking for a way out. Ask Madonna.”

CEO of Seventh Street Media Luke Girgis interviews heads of companies in the music industry about how they got to where they are, as well as all the mistakes they’ve made, and what they’ve learned from running their hugely successful companies.

In Episode #4 of Fear At The Top, Girgis interviews Michael Chugg or ‘Chuggi’ as he is known by those close to him. Responsible for some of biggest tours to have come through Australia and New Zealand over the past 50 years, Chugg is as charismatic as he is beloved.
