The (Late) Breakfast Meeting with Peter Rudge
Wednesday 4 March, 16:45 - 18:15
Host with the most: Ed Bicknell
The Who, The Rolling Stones, Roger Waters, Duran Duran, Madness, Ray Davies, Anastacia and The Dingoes… over a 40-year career, Peter Rudge’s roster reads like an encyclopaedia of popular music. The recipient of over 260 gold and platinum albums is this year’s Breakfast Meeting interview, as he takes the hot seat opposite raconteur and former Dire Straits’ manager Ed Bicknell.
Peter helped launch the world’s first rock opera (The Who’s Tommy), created the concept of a ‘national tour’ with The Rolling Stones' 1972 US outing, and took Lynyrd Skynyrd from club dates to headlining stadiums. More recently, his stable has included Imelda May, Il Divo and Ball & Boe, while he maintains a 30-year history with English rock band James. Read Peter's biog here.
After 18 editions of The Breakfast Meeting, this year will, very sadly, be Ed Bicknell’s last edition. So before Ed hangs up his golden slippers, be sure to be in the room for his grand finale, as two titans of the management game discuss getting fired, getting paid and a lifetime in the game.
Seating in the room is limited, with screens immediately outside the room for any late arrivals.
