Who’ll Buy Live Nation’s Fleet Of UK Theatres?

“Live Nation has officially signalled its intention to offload its portfolio of UK theatres. That portfolio includes two major West End musical houses (the Lyceum and Apollo Victoria), a one-third stake in the Dominion, and some 14 regional houses, including major theatres in Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh and Oxford.” Whoever buys them will buy — or, likely, expand — a power base as well.
